When I'm not writing songs and playing music, I love to eat healthy foods, practice yoga, and run very long distances. I believe that nourishing and connecting the mind, body, and spirit is key to allowing optimal musical expression to occur.
After completing two demo albums, Cold Coffee and Catharsis, I am now in my barn studio working on my first full-length album. My newest material is an eclectic fusion of folk, blues, hip hop, and even the kitchen sink as well.
I recently began a new chapter in my life with my 100 gold star journey. I decided to play 100 open mics and give myself a gold star for each one. These stars will go on my guitar as a reminder to self of the journey before and ahead. I had always wanted to start playing open mics on a regular basis as the obvious starting point on my journey to share my music with the world. But procrastination is an insidious malady whose primary symptom is lack of self-realization. After spending 20 years of not doing open mics, I finally decided now is the time to start doing open mics.
Hi, my name is Ryan Bobbett. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I began my musical journey at an early age, teaching myself to play guitar and piano, and eventually learning to sing through many a voice lesson, choir class, and musical. Almost immediately upon learning to play music, I began writing songs as an attempt to discover my truth.
Fast forward to high school, and I took my first theatre class which led to the life of an actor. I fell in love with the stage and ended up performing in everything I could including plays, choir performances, and Broadway musicals.
After graduating from Durango High School, I got my feet wet playing in various bands and performing in a few theatre shows. I soon moved to Reno where I got my degree in music from UNR, and then came back to my hometown to complete my master's degree in music. I even taught choir in the school district for a few years. But things were just not quite working out for me. I never truly felt quite fulfilled from within. I then decided to commit my life to my first calling and deepest passion: songwriting and performing.
