Kitchener, Ontario's Ryan vanDyk has spent 10 years quietly building a reputation as a solid singer/songwriter. In a hotbed of local talent, he has always been a fixture at local shows and accompanied various acts over the years. His sound is best described as modern country with a rock influence. “I fell into the country scene later in life and it hit me pretty hard. Acts like Doc Walker, Dierks Bentley and Emerson Drive who could make country songs new and fresh really appealed to me. The writing was real and about things that happen in day-to-day life," explains Ryan. This talented Canadian's songwriting skills have been recognized recently by the NSAI. Ryan's self-titled debut EP features the current radio single Strong Enough which is attracting plenty of attention & airplay around the world.
