Over the course of his career, Ryan has toured Canada countless times, released four full-length albums, and seen his music licensed nationally and abroad. He has shared the stage with an extremely wide-variety of artists, ranging from Lisa Loeb & Buffy Ste. Marie to Nickelback & Mother Mother. He’s had the honour of participating in JunoFest, the Western Canadian Music Awards, Canadian Music Week, Music West, Americana Fest (Nashville), Folk Alliance International (Kansas City) and various other notable Canadian Music Festivals, including 3 wins (Male Vocalist, Record & Artist of the Year) out of 5 nominations at the Vancouver Island Music Awards in 2012. ��McMahon has played some of the great Canadian concert venues, such as the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB, the Ironwood Stage in Calgary, The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver & Nanaimo’s Port Theatre. In 2012, Ryan co-founded ‘Lion Bear Fox,’ with song-writing colleagues Cory Woodward & Christopher Arruda, and the band was immediately named as one of the Top 20 Finalists for the 2013 Peak Performance Project in Vancouver
Kellen Saip is an up and coming singer songwriter from Ladner BC, a small farm/fishing town outside of Vancouver BC.
His music gently fuses folk and blues with subtle undertones of faith and soul that derived from his family gospel roots. His old soul but forever young mentality helps explore a melodic guitar sound mixed with organically adapting vocals. His lyrics and vocals together deliver an intimate experience that can one minute be sweet and silky like a fine wine and the next raspy and strong that hits you harder than a cheap shot of whiskey.
