BIO (Shortened for Web and Print)
Originally from Vancouver, Ryan Gazzola's musical style of pop-rock with elements of blues, soul, and jazz has drawn comparisons to those of John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr. and James Bay. Crafting emotionally honest songs that are both poetic and captivating, the Canadian songwriter explores iconic golden-era musicality within the framework of modern pop. In an interview with HerCampus.com, Ryan described his sound: "In my music I try to bridge the old and the new. Like what would happen if the playful vocal melodies of Ed Sheeran and the intense, but passionate guitar playing of Jimi Hendrix collided.” With songwriting inspired by a deep admiration for a diverse spectrum of musical influences, Ryan’s “melting pot of styles” philosophy takes listeners on a unique adventure from one song to the next.
