Ryan Jewel (Singer/Guitar) – My full name is Ryan Douglas Jewel. I was born in Leesburg, Virginia, and raised in Front Royal. When I graduated from Skyline High in 2008, I moved to South Carolina shortly afterwards in pursuit of some kind of degree. 5 years later, a few failed tests, 2 years of football practices, and a whole bunch of “up-all-nighters”, I received my Bachelors of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology in the fall of 2013. I am now currently a park ranger at Shenandoah River “Andy Guest” State Park.
Although I received my Bachelors, music has always been my passion since I can remember. I am currently working to be able to pursue my music career full-time, and it’s not too far out of reach! I am working towards recording my second album, but first solo album, in the coming months. Win or lose this competition, I will continue to pursue my music career to the best of my ability. I am a strong believer in never giving up, being persistent, and chasing your dreams… well, my dream is to have my name in lights one day and to be able to entertain thousands of people with my voice and music!
