" I met Ryan in 2006 and was very impressed at the depth of his influence and his ability to put said influences together in his own way.. To watch him grow as a artist and to hear his name mentioned to me as much as it has is a testament to his hard work and skill. "
- Joe Bonamassa
"Ryan's playing has the passion and exuberance of youth, but its further lifted by a deep dedication to his craft. His technique is awe-inspiring, but its the dawning subtleties and emotional range that hints of the greatest possibilities--"
- Ian Moore
"Look for this young lion in the future because he's looking for his own sound and what I've heard so far; I like it."
- Chris Duarte
