Andrew Ryan

Andrew shows an interest and talent in writing life in Poem and Song. These stemming from the road trips across Australia, writing poetry with the kids and of recently winning the Tamworth Songwriters Associations Novice Songwriter of the year – Gary Koehler Award in 2022.

Life has changed and is very different for Andrew since his daughter began guitar lessons five years ago. He also took an interest in playing the guitar and since then the three skills of writing poetry, singing and playing guitar have been rewarding.

Writing from personal life experiences, the people met and places seen have influenced Andrew’s writing deeply. His debut album, “Blacktown” is a mixture of his Australian bush poetry and story- telling brought to song.
