SPOTLIGHT ON AKA

Meet Ryan Greer
Digital Account Supervisor, AKA NYC

 

Outside of AKA, Ryan’s lifelong passion for music is manifested in his acclaimed work as a vocalist, composer and bandleader.  On forming his new collective of musicians in 2011, Cabaret Scenes raved, “the Ryan Greer Jazz Group illuminates how a talented crew morphs classics into absorbing jazz numbers.”  He has performed his reinvention of the Great American Songbook at several venues in NYC including the Metropolitan Room, Somethin’ Jazz Club and Don’t Tell Mama.  In the past year, his focus has been on writing original music that combines elements of jazz, funk, cool-groove and Brazilian flavors; and on November 21 and 22, he recorded a full album at The Creamery Studio in Brooklyn.
