Ryan was born in Coventry in the mid-80s, and somehow bucked the trend by getting many of his musical influences from the 80s and before rather than from his teenage years. His influences are David Bowie, Duran Duran, Queen, Killers, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Muse, and Kings of Leon, and too many 80s artists to mention.
Although Spiral Six is his first band, Ryan has been singing and playing guitar for several years. His other big interest is football - both playing it and supporting Coventry City (Coventry very wisely only has one major football club, so the natives don't have to worry about supporting the wrong one).
