ABOUT RYAN

With a style similar to the likes of Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, and more, Hobler’s debut album, The Elusive Yes, is poised to be a masterpiece of powerfully moving songs that all listeners will be able to connect with intimately  - Earbuddy

Upbeat...catchy, well-crafted...with that early ’70′s Harry Nilsson/Gilbert O’Sullivan pop-ness about it.  It’s a good thing, especially in a time where “songwriters” are becoming scarce - Popdose

Eclectic folk-pop singer and genre-jumping songwriter Ryan Hobler has been playing music in and around his native New York for nearly two decades. Performing in various bands and working as a professional audio engineer, Hobler developed a refined, lyric-driven style with a sound that combines intertwining layers of natural acoustic tones, transporting vocal harmonies and surprising arrangements. Thematically, his songs range from intimate personal stories to surreal allegorical explorations that have been praised for revealing a "love, defeat, and resilience in each track” (examiner.com).

Influenced by folk-rock heroes like Paul Simon, Elliott Smith, and Nick Drake, Hobler’s driving force is a desire to connect with others, inspire them, and create great art. In 2015, with the help of renowned producer Andy Baldwin (Bjork, St. Lucia, Wakey! Wakey!), Ryan released his debut album, The Elusive Yes.
