Listening to Ryan Tennis...
is like taking a road trip to a new place with an old friend. Songs range from soul-touching acoustic ballads to roots funk and soul to rollicking reggae and afro-caribbean, but under it all is a foundation of groove and warmth that keeps you moving forward. Tennis' sound has drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Bill Withers and Ben Harper--surprising likenesses for an all-American college football player turned singer/songwriter. While his disarming lyrics and singable melodies display a rare sensitivity, the intensity of his live performances - solo or backed by the raucous Clubhouse Band - hint at his gridiron past.
Tennis' charming authenticity and powerful groove have endeared him to fans at home and abroad, and with a dogged DIY mentality the last two years have seen him orchestrate successful tours through Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Ireland, Colombia, and Argentina. The coming year will see him tour in the US, Europe, and South America in support of his new album, "The Easier Mile."
