Engaging and honest, Ryan McMahon’s music is written from the heart and sung from the soul. It is as rock as folk can get before it starts to roll. A blend of folk, Americana and rock following the lead of his peers Jason Isbell, Nathaniel Rateliff & Warren Zevon. The singer songwriter has enough wit and charm to get through any situation and his songwriting fits every emotion into his live performance.
Over the years, Ryan has opened for many iconic bands and artists from Buffy Ste. Marie and Nickelback to Canadian country artists Chad Brownlee, Brett Kissel, Dallas Smith and Aaron Pritchett. His talent, persona and musicality opened many doors to the range of genres encompassed in his songs.
Canadian TV/Radio personality Terry David Mulligan may have summed up Ryan best: “The complete package. Singer. Songwriter. Performer. Troublemaker. Passionate human being. For me… priceless.”
