Ry has a wanderer’s heart in search of home and his songs reflect that.  At a young age he woke up to a sense of wonder at the beauty of the mountains, deserts and coastline of his native California.  What he experienced nourished a passion for creativity and exploration.  He started writing lyrics and recording melodies when he was twelve, but didn’t have the musical ability to turn those into completed songs.  Instead, Ry channeled his love for music and storytelling into film, becoming a sought after music video director and cinematographer in his adopted home base of Nashville, traveling the world and collaborating with some of his favorite artists for over a decade.
