#ThrowbackThursday: Ryan Stone Music ROCKS the Coconut Grove Arts Festival in Miami!

The weather was perfect at 75° and clear blue skies at the 51st Annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival!

Ryan Stone rocks the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Miami!


L to R: Robert Torra, Ryan Stone, “Spyke” Micheal Yurchak, Rolando Alemán

A staple at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, *RSM delivered their finest performance to date on the main stage on Sunday, February 16th, 2014.

Ryan Stone welcomed his newest band members, Rolando Alemán who skillfully commanded the rhythm guitar and “Spyke” Micheal Yurchak who rocked the bass, along with long-time buddy and accomplished drummer/percussionist, Ozzie Jimenez (Shayda Gray), and distinguished lead guitar player, Robert Torra.

*RSM opened the show with their newest original song, I’ll Break Your Fall. The set-list was JAM-packed with favorites including RAIN!, SugarFree, The Common Thread, Go Higher and many more!

Ozzie Jimenez nails it on drums!

Ryan Stone Music was established by multifaceted lyricist, songwriter, singer and musician Ryan Stone. He released his solo debut album entitled “Me and My Big Mouth” in January of 2008. The title, was a play on words as Stone himself wrote and orchestrated all of the compositions, played all the instruments and performed all the vocals.

Building success upon success, Stone released his second album “Life Needs A Soundtrack” where again he exhibits his true talents and takes out of the box concepts molding them into accessible tunes that both mainstream listeners and those with a taste for diversity will embrace.

Fusing energy with melody, *RSM creates songs that are long lasting and highly addictive. Even Billboard Magazine and Song of the Year recognized Ryan Stone Music as an influential powerhouse when not one, but three of his songs, “Fallen”, “Breakaway” and “1 and 1 Makes 3”, were honorably mentioned!

Ryan Stone has spent many years fronting various bands in the Miami area before going solo.  Another multi-talented lyricist and musician he chose to play all of the instruments on his first release in 2007.

With their construction guy good looks the current line up is a full band joining many seasoned local musicians: Ozzie Jimenez, Ax Aleman and of course Ryan Stone.

Ryan has a nicely laid out web page and can be found on all the social media outlets, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace etc. He is definitely an experienced local guy who is quite capable of marketing himself in his part of town.  He has spent the time to put together some…
