Twenty-something white male singer/songwriters with acoustic guitars aren't exactly hard to come by. Running across one is just about as surprising as finding a pigeon in New York. Still, something about Ryan Adcock's music allows him to stick out from the crowd. "I don't think I'm creating anything revolutionary here. But, I do hope that I'm making connections with listeners. If I can successfully communicate my thoughts through a song, then I consider that song worthwhile," Adcock said. It's precisely that connection with his audience that has made him so successful. Five hundred shows after stepping on to stage for the first time, Adcock has grown into an expert performer. His music is a conversation with the audience. His storytelling makes one feel as though they've known him for years. With over 4,000 sales, Ryan Adcock's recorded music has done just as well. It has been featured on national television shows (All My Children), national radio programs (The Mitch Albom Show, AudioSyncrasies), in national magazines (PasteMusic), and on over 100 radio stations across the country. So compelling is Adcock's music that one reviewer was prompted to say "If you don't like Ryan Adcock, there's something wrong with you." So, c'mon...you've got room for one more twenty-something white male singer/songwriter in your collection.
