Ryan Brandon was born in Oklahoma and moved to Texas when he was 4 years old. He began playing drums at 6 and got into his first band at the ripe ol' age of 12. He notes his influences as Stewart Copeland from The Police, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Abe Cunningham of The Deftones and Vinnie Paul of Pantera/Hellyeah. He is also a huge Dave Matthews fan and like to follw him around on tour - but not in a creepy way. Ryan is an avid concert goer, attending at least 3 concerts a month.
