About Me

I was born into a musical family; inspired by my brother and sister who play both the violin and the piano. Having a piano at home meant it was only natural I would take up the instrument! I play the piano daily in addition to another instrument I enjoy – the acoustic guitar! I am also a talented Saxophone player, and offer related services as an additional booking option.

My influence in music has stemmed from listening to my parent’s music collection throughout early life – I’ve been singing along to many of the songs I perform now since I was just a few years old! A poster made when I was 5 reads; ‘When I grow up I want to sing like a Bee Gee’. Ambition fulfilled!

In terms of my personality, I have been described as charismatic, funny, charming and cheeky. I think you need to be in this job! Outside of music, I enjoy watching and playing sports, I love animals and I have a keen interest in history.

Being a Vocalist: What Do I Do?

As a singer, I perform at weddings, events and private functions across the UK. I also perform in various restaurants, hotels, pubs, clubs and lounges within the North West.

I pride myself in providing outstanding, premium quality entertainment at an affordable price. Be sure to read my brilliant testimonials.

My vast, growing repertoire – presented in my song book – includes popular Jazz standards, Rat Pack & Swing numbers made famous by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, two of my favourite artistes.

In addition, I enjoy singing modern hits and vast a range of Pop, Motown, Soul and Rock classics from the 60s, 70s & 80s from artists such as The Beatles, Lionel Richie, George Benson & The Bee Gees. I also perform hits made famous by Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Dean Martin, Rod Stewart, Nat King Cole, The Four Seasons, The Beach Boys, Luther Vandross, Earth Wind & Fire, Ronan Keating, Bread, Billy Joel, Barry White, The Stylistics… I can go on and on here!

I also cover dozens of material from female world stars including Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and The Carpenters; usually with a simple piano backing track as part of an acoustic/piano backed set.

I have been compared to Michael Buble in terms of voice style, tone, stage presence and repertoire. Like Buble, I sing Jazz & Swing but also mix in a lot of different styles and genres – contemporary tracks but also songs from the 60s, 70 & 80s. Other comparisons have been made with me and the likes of George Benson, Frank Sinatra and Robbie Williams. Whilst I love that style of music, my song book is varied and I have an extended vocal range offering the versatility to perform other genres, from upbeat party music to easy listening or simple piano-backed tracks.

And don’t forget I play Saxophone and can DJ too – available as options with all bookings.

My Story…

Music has always been a massive part of my life, let’s look a bit further back at how it all began, and how my career developed and progressed over the years.

Testimonials

"Ryan performed last Saturday night at my mums surprise birthday party. What can I say - he was a total hit with all ages in the party. His personality lit up the room and his voice and sax playing amazing. From Sinatra’s classics to Ed Sheeran, the (living!) room was dancing all night long and no one wanted him to leave.
He made the party for the guests and was a dream to work with. Book him - You won’t be disappointed!"

Thank you Ryan for such a great afternoon!! Julie, Southport
