New Orleans Style Vocals, Mountain Soul
Tuck Ryan’s sounds can best be described as Mountain Soul. His smooth New Orleans style vocals and piano playing are backed by a tight rhythm section that is influenced by many of the founding fathers of Americana and soul. If there is one thing you can say about Tuck’s music its that he’s authentic. From behind the piano he gives the audience all he’s got –transforming his songs into the soundtrack of the evening. The Tuck Ryan Band is rounded out by Andy Mowatt on 8-string guitar, Matt Hostetter on vocals and lead guitar, with Taylor Wade and Jabin Baxter sharing drum duties. Tuck remains constantly playing live and is as the main keyboard player for Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam, frequently touring up an down the East Coast.
Tuck is currently fronting his own band and promoting his latest release “Warmest Blue,” which he began writing during a long winter a few years ago. In it are real stories of doing some growing up and landing back on your feet. Recorded at the Sugar Tank Studio in Lancaster, Pa he enlisted the help of multiple local musicians and good friends to make this record including Oliver Craven and Charlie Muench of The Stray Birds, Andy Mowatt and Taylor Wade of Steely Jam, and Matt Hostetter and Nick Adams of Limbo Jimbo. The album is something Ryan hopes we can all relate to.
