Ryanhood 5-20-2018

Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene, where Campus Activities Magazine would name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.” They’ve since gone on to perform more than 800 shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, and many more.

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.”

Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, was recorded over the past year and half in bedrooms, living rooms, hotel rooms, and green rooms across the country. Led by their signature two-part vocal harmonies, and decorated with flares of guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, Yearbook centers on songs about being young, growing old, and making peace with the passing of time. 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).
Hood’s vocal delivery brings an affecting authenticity. Throughout, they play furiously together and Green’s melodic leads and solos often provide the highlights. Their trademark acoustic folk-pop sound will remind some listeners of the work of Dan Fogelberg and Simon & Garfunkel.” Tucson Weekly
