Ryan Fox 

Introducing Ryan Fox, a folk rock singer-songwriter from Kent, UK. Enjoy smart, poetic, often political lyrics, well-told stories? Care for the left? Not prepared to stand by and let the world go to pot without a fight? You'll find a home with Ryan. 

 

On a day to day basis Ryan can be found trying to remember what he did and where he was only yesterday, honing his Al Pacino impersonation in the shower, and trying to get his code to work. He has yet to make much progress on any of the above. Ryan grew up in the East Midlands but settled in Kent after leaving university. He is a qualified secondary school physics teacher and is currently studying at Imperial College London for a PhD in Theory and Simulation of Materials.

 

Ryan has acted with the Canterbury Players drama group, recently appearing as TomJon in Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters. He recently appeared on the BBC TV show Pointless, but him and his fiancee were mugged of victory by a dodgy question on geography. Influences Ryan's gentle, smart, poetic lyrics and social commentary draw inspiration from Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Donovan, Woody Guthrie, Dylan Thomas, Percy Shelley, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Dolly Parton, Eagles, The Beatles, Tom Petty, Willie Nelson and Roy Orbison. His musical influences include Bob Dylan, Donovan, Elvis Costello, Eagles, Johnny Cash, Pete Seeger, Don McLean, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, The Beatles, The Band, Neil Young, The Seekers, The Byrds, Noel Gallagher, ELO and the Nashville TV series.

 

Ryan is currently working on his fourth album.
