I am a singer/songwriter and I perform regularly in venues and festivals throughout New England. I've opened for bands such as, Incubus, Scotty McCreery and Rascal Flatts on the "Ultimate Tailgate Stage" at Bank of NH Pavilion.
I was recently nominated "New Act of the Year" in the 2017 New England Music Awards, and voted runner-up as Best Local Solo Performer - for the Hippo Press best of 2017.
I play acoustic guitar and use a loop pedal during much of my performance. My sets are 3-4 hrs, playing a mix of original and popular covers.
Saw Ryan at Gaslight pub in Portsmouth. Amazing! Enjoyed the show. We arrived late so only heard a couple songs but videotaped an posted him on my Instagram. Definitely will follow this young man. Ryan do come to CT?! Could use you in the fall.
Response from Ryan Williamson:
Thanks for the review!
So happy you enjoyed my music!
Send me details for the fall & hopefully we can work something out.
I post my schedule monthly on FB - but book a few months ahead, so let me know if you've got a specific date in mind.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Ryan is amazing! Professional and talented! Thank you so much Ryan! We would definitely hire Ryan again for any type of event.
We are so happy we chose Ryan to sing and play guitar at our wedding. His playing blended perfectly with our style. At times he simply played and at others he sang. He is skilled at guitar and has awesome vocal ability.
When we were searching for musical entertainment for our wedding we weren't sure what would be best for us and our guests but after having Ryan perform at our wedding there is no doubt we made the Best Choice!!
Price Range: $100 per hr
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
New Hampshire native and singer-songwriter Ryan Williamson has been active in the New England music scene for just two years, but he's making a name for himself--and fast! He is one of those performers who can capture an audience on the first note and quiet a crowd in even the loudest of venues, opening for major acts such as Incubus, Rascal Flatts and Scotty McCreery.
A self taught musician, Ryan began performing music in high school while attending Phillips Exeter Academy. "I was a small fish in a big pond at Exeter. I was surrounded by kids smarter, more athletic and more musically talented than I was, but I gained invaluable lessons by observing and appreciating the talents of others while working on my own."
It wasn't until college that Ryan began to write music of his own, using life experience to tell stories through his songs. "I began writing songs for myself, primarily as therapy, I guess. I had no idea it would become such an important part of my life or that people would actually want to hear them."
In 2013 Ryan recorded his first 4-track EP at Dreamsicle Arts and Entertainment, produced by internationally acclaimed
songwriter/vocalist/producer Vinx De'Jon Parrette. "We have been fortunate to travel the globe and we have brought some amazing artists to our stage in this past year. But it is always wonderful to discover an artist of this caliber in our own backyard...His songs rival those you'd hear on any major market radio station."

With his second EP just released in May 2015, Ryan continues to perform regularly in venues and festivals around New England, attracting new fans and gaining local recognition as a name to remember.
