Ryan DeSiato (Deh-See-auto) is a Multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist from Austin, Texas. He is an experienced artist who creates music with deeply personal lyrics, powerful melodies in a broad range of styles.
With a repertoire of over 200 original songs as well as instrumentals, he has the ability to craft his live performances to connect to whatever audience he... may engage. Ryan’s superb melodies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the acoustic & electric guitar among other stringed instruments.

His poignant lyrics and eclectic rhythms are beautifully orchestrated, making his music both original and incredibly captivating. Up close Ryan is an enigmatic artist whose passion for music infects anyone within a few feet of him"
