This Dave Matthew's Band inspired artist starting playing the guitar when he was eight years-old, eventually leading to the creation of his sweet acoustic sounds.
Ryan's debut album, Take it All Away, debuted in the number eight spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album featured his first well known hit, "On the Way Down," which introduced him to the pop music scene. His second record, You Stand Watching, which also appeared on the Billboard charts, was quickly certified as a gold album. For his third album, The Moon Under Water, he wanted to take a different approach. He claims that the content of this record reflects the things that have changed his life.
Young Hollywood went to Las Vegas and caught up with Ryan at a VMA celebrity poker tournament.
On his website, he lists his "likes" as cookies and socks.
