Mixing folk rock songs with spirited guitars and rhythms, Ryan Townsend is a singer/songwriter creating unfettered acoustic driven compositions that share an alternative decadence and genuine intimacy.
Professing a soulful balance, his voice evokes influences from Joe Cocker to Ray Lamontagne. He travels the divide between genres, crafting tales with a vintage spirit told in a rhythmic full-throated language. “I’ve always been attracted to the emotions and connections that music can make. How a simple melody or lyric can take you back to certain place or time just like a photograph.” www.ryantownsendband.com
