From blistering renditions of blues-infused rock, soul and funk to R&B, rock ‘n roll, and sublime vintage blues, Ryder Green brings a dynamic mix of firepower and grit, effortlessly intertwined with melodic engaging songs, and straight-from-the-soul improvisation. His distinctive tone, infectious original songs, and attention-grabbing covers ignite crowds of all ages. 

While originally known as a guitar virtuoso—someone who threw his heart into amazingly soulful instrumentals, he’s now bringing his rapidly growing fan base a powerful fusion of riveting song styles — melodies, rhythms and lyrics you just can’t get out of your head, and don’t want to. Combined with an ever-growing depth and mastery on all levels, he can wow the audience in a uniquely uplifting way. 

A prolific songwriter, Green writes and sings about themes that often strike a universal chord in the message while spiking the music with riffs, phrasing, and changeups you won’t hear anywhere else. Sometimes hard-driving and powerful, sometimes eloquently edgy — but always engaging and entertaining. 


“I have always wanted to create songs that make listeners feel like the song is really speaking to them. It might be in the lyrics or in the instrumentals, or both, but somehow it connects with them, and every time they hear it, it resonates. Maybe they want to sing along, or maybe they just want to listen and groove to it. Maybe it brings some relief to whatever they’re going through in life".


"I grew up doing a lot of blues, and was very influenced by dudes like Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Johnny Winter, as well as more modern guys like Eric Gales, Gary Clark Jr., and Matt Schofield. I still love all these guys and their music, but I felt like I needed to find my own musical identity, so I’ve been working to evolve that".


"I continually look across multiple genres for inspiration. Some of the artists I was drawn to included Eric Steckel and Henrik Freischlader. I was also listening to soul/R&B and funk music from legends like Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Frankie Beverly, and then more recent artists like Nathan Angelo, PJ Morton, Marc Broussard, and Mingo Fishtrap".


"There have been so many other influences like Jonny Lang, The Jompson Brothers, Robert Randolph, Derek Trucks, Funkadelic, Vince Gill, Joe Diffie, Alan Jackson, Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Brad Paisley. I could go on and on talking about them. I’m an artist myself, but also a music lover and fan.”


"I have a lot of songs I’ve written and played at shows. My challenge is to get them all recorded. I took advantage of the covid lockdown times to start learning the art of being a recording engineer. I like understanding that whole process and knowing what’s possible in the studio. But playing live on stage, and having it all come together with the band is what I love most!"
