Hey, I'm Ryan. I just moved out to Chicago and I'm interested in finding a band or a group of people that are interested in jamming/playing music. At this point in my life, vocals are definitely my strong suit. I frequently handle vocals from any of the bands I listed below (with the exception of RATM). The two sample songs I have supplied were recorded with my band (we are no longer together). I am the lead vocalist on both tracks as well as the keyboard player on both tracks. I have 15 years of classical training on the piano and can play the keyboard, however my Roland will not be out in Chicago with me at first, however if you have your own rack I would have no problems utilizing it.
