Bear Ryan Live at WSCW June 18
June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The youngest of 4 children, Bear didn’t grow up with music lessons. She had her mother’s Beach Boys and Elvis vinyl. Her father’s John Denver and Frank Sinatra 8-tracks. Her sisters’ Quiet Riot tapes and her brother’s Zeppelin albums.
With a sound heavily influenced by country, bluegrass, rock n roll, and blues, Bear started to make the music that she yearned to hear. The music she longed for was rarely written from the female perspective.
“It’s just rock n roll … comin’ from a lady-person.”
That was that.
Ask her what she plays, and she’ll tell you it’s ‘git down music’.
“It’ll either bring you down, or make you wanna GIT DOWN. Either way…. that’s what I play.”
With a big voice and a low growl, some left-handed slide guitar, a swampy tone, and a knack for story-telling… Bear brings an enchanting performance to crowds of any kind.
