Presented by Riverside Rhythm & Rhyme
NAMED “BEST GROUP/DUO” in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market.
They soon took this high-energy, highly-interactive street-performers approach to the college market, where they quickly became one of the most popular bands on the circuit, playing upwards of 130 college dates a year. Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.”
And now, twelve years after their street start, Ryanhood’s star is still on the rise. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, released in March 2017, and has been described as ““nestled in a great pocket, feeling all at once focused on storytelling and intimacy while not being afraid to wield a big musical stick” by For Folk’s Sake. They currently reside in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).
