THE TRACK ON 2 STILLHOUSE SONGWRITER SESSIONS
Set in an intimate listening room atmosphere that will create a unique experience for both artists and all those attending, The Track on 2 Stillhouse Sessions will focus on the craft of songwriting and the stories that go along with it.
TICKETS & ADMISSION
All attendees must have a ticket available through Eventbrite to ensure admittance. Admission is $5.00
THE LISTENING ROOM ATMOSPHERE
What you will experience here is a listening room. And while the performers love the audience to applaud, laugh and often sing along, too much conversation during the show distracts other listeners and is disrespectful to the songwriters who form the backbone of this very special evening.
We encourage talking before the show, between sets, during intermission, and after the show but ask that during the performances, audience members keep their voices low and talking to a minimum.

Years that have included open mics, church singing, Canadian Idol, basement bands, touring Canada with his first project (Canadian Country Music Award nominated - Group Of The Year, and Alberta Country Music Award winning) The Boom Chucka Boys, and now a flourishing beginning to his solo career.

Inspired heavily by four specific artists; Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, John Prine and Corb Lund, he appears to just now be finding his true voice and sound, both as a writer and performer. That sound shines on his most recent album, It Was A Song, released on May 31, 2019. A soaring and stirring collection of songs specifically chosen to take you on a journey. IT WAS A SONG is currently nominated for Alberta Country Music’s Album Of The Year and Ryan is up for Male Artist and Songwriter Of The Year.
