Come and listen this Friday, December 10 to live music from Ryan Berg & The Velvet Ears and tunes from DJ Mike B at Jaxon from 6-10pm
RYAN BERG & THE VELVET EARS: Ryan combines elements of blues and soul with intimate acoustic-driven performances. His writing explores the challenges of life, digging into the depths of his journey. With a smoky, rich voice and a stacked backing band, he combines a vintage sound with soulful melodies.
Ryan was introduced to music at a young age. Through singing in church, performing in theater and the school choir, Ryan felt music was his calling. To expand his musical prowess, Ryan ventured to Texas State University to study vocal performance.
In 2013, Ryan began playing the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex with lead guitarist, Glen Fleischman and drummer, Charles Alexander. Soon after, Ryan started collaborating with several local artists, as well as The Mammoths, based in Austin.
Ryan released his debut full-length album titled The Velvet Ears in 2017. The songs are a powerful mix of raw vocals, deeply personal lyrics and soulful melodies. Since then, Ryan has been a full-time musician playing gigs both with his band and acoustically as a solo artist.
In 2020, Ryan appeared on Season 19 of The Voice (US). Ryan is currently writing new music and planning a US tour for 2021 – 2022.
