Hi, my name is Ryan Loftus. I am a musician and songwriter currently working out of Philadelphia and Bethlehem, PA. I am primarily a guitarist and singer, but also play bass and drums. In addition, I also have a background in audio engineering and production. My main genre of focus is metal, but I also draw influences from rock, blues, eastern music, and alternative.
I’m currently involved in many different projects. On November 1, 2014, I released my debut solo album, Reclaiming Humanity, which saw me performing all of the instruments, production, and even (unfortunately) designing the artwork.
In addition, I am a member of the metal band April Uprising. The band was formed in late 2014 and early 2015, with us beginning to perform in March and April.
Currently, I am working on new material for April Uprising’s debut release and new songs for my solo act.
In addition to my music, I have many other interests such as reading, martial arts, and weightlifting. I am currently working on writing a novel.
So, what can you expect from me?
My plan for this site is for it to be primarily focused on music. This will include content such as my originals, what I’m listening to, gear I’m using, and lessons. In addition, I will also be discussing things separate from music and how they can help you to become a better musician and person. My plan for this area is to post book discussions, film and T.V. reviews, and ideas that have helped me on my creative journey with the hope of encouraging you.
My goal in life is to always be getting better. I am constantly trying to push myself in each aspect of my life. As I continue on this journey, I would like to share what I have learned, so others may grow as well.
Sacrifice, Endure, and Go The Distance,
