Luke Ryan

 Artist's Website

Luke has a unique guitar style and a whisky baritone that has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, and even Tom Waits. His music style is a mix of down home Blues and roadhouse "crying in your beer" country and, of course, some good old rock and Rroll. But what truly sets Luke apart is his often unexpected interactions with his crowd. He often urges commuters to form a conga line or guess his weight for a nickel.

This rock and roll road warrior has held three recording contracts and has produced four albums on his own. He's worked as a studio musician and played countless clubs and some notorious dives.

His music and insights have been featured in many documentaries and television shows in the USA and abroad. Currently, Luke divides his time between performing and running "Hootch Studio," his home recording studio.
