Ryan McGarvey has in a relatively short amount of time not only gained a national, and international fan base, but admiration from his personal idols as well. In the past few years of Ryan's career he has had the honor, and the pleasure of sharing the bill with such top name act's as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, Joe Bonamassa, Gov't Mule, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and many more. His debut CD release "Forward In Reverse" reached the top 20 (out of over 200,000 Artist's Cd's) on the best sellers list on CDBaby.com (The worlds largest online independent distributor). With rave reviews complimenting everything from his fiery guitar chops, which range from everything from delta slide to heavy rock, his unique vocals, or mature songwriting skills, Ryan McGarvey's live shows will leave you breathless and wanting more. Absorbing influences from everything from early delta blues, to classic hard rock, to more contemporary blues/rock artist's of today. In 2006 Ryan was named Guitar Center 's "Guitarmaggeddon: Next King Of The Blues" champion of New Mexico . In 2007 & 2008 he was named "Blues Act Of The Year", in The Weekly Alibi's Annual Readers Poll. In 2007 Ryan took home the New Mexico Music Award for "Blues Song Of The Year" for his song "Cryin' Over You". Ryan was featured by the editors of Guitar Player Magazine twice during the Summer of 2008 in their magazine. McGarvey was voted "Best Musician" from Albuquerque The Magazine's Annual "Best Of The City" Readers Poll in 2008, 2010, and 2012 (being voted Best Vocalist in 2009). In 2010 Ryan was chosen from over 4000+ bands from around the world to perform at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago. From 2011-2012 Ryan & his Band embarked on three very successful European tours to rave reviews. With a solid rhythm section backing him, Ryan McGarvey and his band are embarking on bigger and better things every day...Tours are constantly being planned.. Don't miss your chance to catch them in a town near you !!!
"Ryan's playing has the passion and exuberance of youth, but its further lifted by a deep dedication to his craft. His technique is awe-inspiring, but its the dawning subtleties and emotional range that hints of the greatest possibilities--" - Ian Moore
"Look for this young lion in the future because he's looking for his own sound and what I've heard so far; I like it." - Chris Duarte

Wonderful stuff!
Great guitar, voice and songs. If this is what he can produce at 21 years of age, imagine what the future may hold for him! Will always be on the lookout for next album and hope he'll make it over to Ireland (homeland of the great Rory Gallagher!)

Herman Koelman

Watch him..
When I first heard the CD I was amazed of the way he played the blues. And than I have see him seceral times live. What a musician! He can play the guitar I can't wait for his next CD, that wil come in December. I'm a fan of him.


Stellar Rock.
Wow just discovered this guy. He s breath of fresh air because one he's a guitar virtuoso and plays with heart and melody.

Joe Johnston

Even Better LIVE!!!
Ryan's music on this CD is utterly explosive. If you think the CD is good, you have GOT to see him live! You'll never believe how Ryan gets the sounds that you hear on the album. It's all him, it's all talent, and it's freakin' amazing to witness. Believe me, go to Albuquerque and catch Ryan. EVERYONE at his shows has a GOOD TIME. When Ryan takes a break, walk up and talk to him. You'll never meet a nicer young man. Ryan should go far, if his talent & personality are any indication. 'Cuz his music is smokin'!!!


Guitar Hero.....for real
Ryan McGarvey is the real deal!!! I have seen him live many times and he never fails to deliver. His cd captures his fire, energy and unique style that is sure to make him the next real Blues Guitar Hero. If you are into guitar driven blues and rock then this is a must have cd. Ryan also has the voice and vocals to take his style to the next level.


This is an unbelievable album! Ryan McGarvy's sound and style is unremarkable! Great find for anyone who loves the blues!

I had the pleasure of first hearing Ryan perform at a blues club in Santa Fe this last October. I was awestruck by his talent and when I got home from my trip I immediately ordered his CD. I can't seem to stop listening to it and can't wait for my next trip to New Mexico to see him live again. Do yourself a big favor and buy this CD....it, just like Ryan, is truly amazing.


Listen and Buy this cd!
I've had the privelege of hearing him play for a couple of years here in Albuquerque and he blows me away. Amazing talent and skill. As much as I loved listening to him crank out SRV tunes, it is a real pleasure to hear his own music. Rock on, Ryan!

It has been many years since I've heard music like this played. This young man and his band are going places!!!!
