Tour name: RYAN KEEN @ THE RUBY LOUNGE
Meet English born and bred singer-songwriter Ryan Keen - an artist carving out his own unique niche in music. Combining emotionally driven lyrics and warm vocals with his rhythmic-percussive guitar playing, Keen's songs recall a wealth of influences ranging from Buena Vista Social Club to Bert Jansch, Coldplay to BB King.
Hailing from picturesque South Devon, the 24 year-old picked up his first guitar on his 8th Birthday. From then on he began to learn one style after another: acoustic, electric, classical but most noticeably flamenco, a style that is deeply rooted in the rhythmic-percussive finger-picking technique that he is known for today.
In just a few years Ryan has released two EPs: 2009’s Aiming For The Sun and the forthcoming Focus, he's toured extensively around the UK; including supporting Ed Sheeran on his recent sold-out “+” tour, and has built up a strong fan-base that seems to be growing by the minute. It goes without saying that Ryan one of the most proactive new artists on the UK music scene.
