Ryan DeSiato (Deh-See-auto) is a singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist from Austin, Texas. His hallmark style is a mixture of modern singer-songwriter rock, world music, folk and improvisation. This blending of musical style has earned him the moniker ‘Neo Singer-Songwriter’ to help define his multifaceted genre of music.
Ryan works in many capacities with other Austin and regional Texas artists as well as performing nationally in live shows and playing with a rotating cast of world-class band mates. Over the course of his career, Ryan performed both nationally and internationally.
His discography consists of two albums, EP 2004 and 2005’s Double Edged. In 2005, Ryan produced the award-winning video for his single Make Believe. It was nominated and won ‘Video of the Year’ by the Austin Music Network.
After a brief hiatus, Ryan is back working on his most ambitious project to date. He is the sole producer, songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and audio engineer of his first full-length album.
The new album titled So Much For Innocence will be released July 15 2017.
“Without a doubt the last few years away from the spotlight have brought forth exponential artistic growth in all aspects of my abilities.”
“So Much For Innocence has been a labor of love and a deep exploration into my artistic capacity. This project led me across the boundaries of many styles in the process of its creation. The new album is a reflection of all my musical influences.”
This socially conscious album expresses Ryan’s hopefully, yet realistic interpretation of where the world is now. It exposes his raw personal experience from matters of the heart to the existential searching within all of us.
From a vocal perspective, this album delves into all facets of Ryan’s rich Bari-tenor. The album explores his vocal talents, songwriting and instrumental abilities with hints of technologically progressive production.
“So Much For Innocence is an exploration into what I know to be complete and authentically mine, having recorded this album in 3 separate studios and all the vocals in my home studio, this album is intimately personal to me.”
He is as timeless as tradition, as immediate as tomorrow’s headlines, and as essential as any artist who seeks to enlighten.
