From blistering renditions of blues-infused rock and funk to sublime vintage blues, R&B, rock ‘n roll, and everything in between, Ryder Green brings a dynamic mix of firepower and grit, effortlessly intertwined with melodic engaging songs, and straight-from-the-soul improvisation. His distinctive tone, infectious original songs and vocals, and attention-grabbing covers ignite crowds of all ages.
While originally known as a guitar virtuoso in his early teen years and a prolific songwriter, Green writes and sings about themes that often strike a universal chord in the message while spiking the music with riffs, phrasing, and changeups you won’t hear anywhere else. Sometimes hard-driving and powerful, sometimes eloquently edgy — but always engaging and entertaining.
In November of 2016 (at age 18), Ryder Green & his band won the Golden Gate Blues Society’s blues challenge. They then went on to represent them in Memphis in February 2017 at the International Blues Challenge (IBC). Just before heading to Memphis with his band, Green released Won’t Take It From You, an EP of 5 original songs. He wrote, arranged, and sang all 5 songs, in addition to playing lead and rhythm guitar.
Whether playing the intimate setting of a club, or the big stage and crowd of a festival, Green always delivers one seriously tight rockin’ music experience. He’s the real deal!
