Introducing Ryan Fox, a folk rock singer-songwriter from Kent, UK. Ryan's gentle, smart, poetic songs have been played on FolkCast, Hermitage FM, Miskin Radio and Sheppey FM. His songs have reached the finals of the UK Songwriting Contest.
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 Northampton and 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 theoretical physics. Ryan has acted with the Canterbury Players drama group, appearing as TomJon in Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters. He appeared on the BBC TV show Pointless, but him and his wife were mugged of victory by a dodgy question on geography.
Ryan's gentle, smart, poetic lyrics 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, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne 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, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne and the Nashville TV series.
