Ryan Naismith began playing guitar and writing songs later than some, though it has become the same calling that it is for all artists.
In the vein of his musical influences such as Townes VanZandt, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Steve Earle, Blue Rodeo, and Jason Isbell, Ryan strives to write songs that resonate like an intimate conversation. Songs that are honest, and reach below the surface of the everyday.
As an indie DIY artist, he's played rooms from Toronto to Cobalt, Sarnia to Barrie, in addition to his local London and St. Thomas area venues. In 2023 he is Showcasing at Diamonds in the Rough stage during the CCMA’s in Hamilton, On and looking to record his first EP.
