Chrys Ryan is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, CA.

He has worked with many successful musicians, both on stage and in the studio.
In 2012 Chrys finished his debut solo album On Your Wall. The project is a song writing collaboration with producer Mike Castonguay. The album reflects Chrys' personal style and sensibility, while paying respect to many of his early influences throughout his life; Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson to name a few.

Aaron Sterling( John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow)
