Ryan Thomas Smelle

About The Band

Ryan Thomas Smelle is a singer/songwriter that has been playing in and around the Niagara Region for over 20 years. He performs here at the pub solo as ‘Ryan Thomas Smelle’ or as a duo/trio from time to time. His music crosses many genres and includes acoustic, folk, pop, rock, country, and adult contemporary. Ryan will liven up any venue with his charismatic performance and interactive crowd engagement all while providing some ear-pleasing melodies, hooky riffs, and catchy choruses.

Ryan’s passion for creating his own original works has re-emerged after a hiatus from the music scene to take care of issues with his young and growing family. He is now the proud father of two. These personal experiences have helped Ryan to grow emotionally and creatively as a songwriter helping him to offer heartfelt lyrics and soulful songs.

Ryan is open to a variety of cover performances, as well, playing hits from the 60s to today in a variety of genres.

Enjoy Ryan Thomas Smelle’s new style of songwriting on all streaming platforms, or dive into his older pop rock catalog, on his website, to experience his songwriting evolution. You can also catch him here at the pub and enjoy some engaging family-friendly music that will make you tap your foot and move along.
