Ryan Dishen is a singer/songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. Ryan has been performing live for the past seventeen years where he started his career as a singer in various punk-rock groups in Central California.
In 2007, he moved to Berkeley to finish University at California State East Bay.
It was there he discovered his passion for solo performance with his acoustic guitar and commanding vocals. His songs developed into a series of indie/folk tunes that have an undeniable presence of the grit and honesty that is inherent in punk-rock.
Ryan spent five years in Berkeley and Oakland, writing, recording, and playing all around the San Francisco Bay Area.
In 2010, after releasing his debut album, Songs About Mirrors, he booked his first of many DIY tours.
Since then, he's released his second full-length, New Windows, and has continued to tour across the United States, and even did a run in Europe.
Ryan is now finding new sources of inspiration in Music City, where some of his greatest childhood musical influences found their start.
