BIO

Christian Ryan is an established figure in the Florida music community.  With over 1000 performances under his belt, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to every gig.  Through his enthusiasm for the stage, he has been able to become one of the most in-demand and versatile musicians in the state of Florida.  Forging a unconventional path attempting to bring his arsenal of woodwinds into situations one may not expect to hear them, he has consistently helped bands reach new heights.  Possessing equal appreciation for complex harmonies to simple grooves, instrumentals to clever lyrics, new school to vintage, commonplace to the weird; he is constantly testing his musical palette.  He takes pride in playing exactly what any situation calls for.

With what began as "something that seemed cool" in picking up the alto saxophone at 11 years old for school band, has blossomed into an exciting journey.  Taking his talents throughout the state, across the United States, parts of the Caribbean, and as far as China, he has had the opportunity to learn from an array of musicians across genres. From major festivals and sold out venues, to neighborhood bars & restaurants, he has played it all.

Under Projects & CV you can view an extensive listing of all the groups he has collaborated with.  In the mean time, you are bound to see Christian Ryan playing at a venue or event near you.

Christian Ryan uses Yamaha Saxophones, Yamaha & Selmer Clarinets, Yamaha & Artley Flutes, Roland Aerophone, Vandoren & Legere Reeds, Rovner Ligatures, AMT Microphones, Hiscox, Protec, & Pedaltrain Cases, and Hercules Instrument Stands.  

PRESS

"...ONE OF THE 43 BANDS CHRISTIAN RYAN PLAYS IN (LITTLE-KNOWN FACT: CHRISTIAN IS IN FACT AN ALIEN WHO DOES NOT NEED TO SLEEP). I KID, BUT CHRISTIAN HAS BOTH REMARKABLE TALENT AND RANGE, WHICH PUTS HIM IN DEMAND FOR JAZZ, FUNK, REGGAE, METAL (!!), POP AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE."  

EVEN IF YOU HAD A PROGRAM, YOU PROBABLY COULDN’T KEEP UP WITH HIS SCHEDULE."
