Ryann Lecklider (2014 Program Artist)
Heavily influenced by legendary singers like Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Ryann’s musical style is definitively pop, but don’t let this oversimplified classification fool you. She draws inspiration from the soulful sounds of James Morrison, Marc Broussard, and Adele, as well as the lyric artistry of Brooke Fraser and newcomer Tori Kelly.
“Lyrics are incredibly important to me. Each word is painstakingly selected because my goal has always been to deliver honesty in a compelling and imaginative manner,” she notes.
In 2013, Ryann was selected as our second Program Artist. Her first project, ‘the Detours EP’ featuring three original songs, was released on May 16, 2014. She is now performing around Los Angeles and continuing to write new material for her next project. Ryann currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Mat.
