Ryan Hodgson

Performing the most gorgeous instrumentals on the acoustic guitar, covering the classic, contemporary and modern-day hits.

Currently based in the quiet coastal town of Binningup, Western Australia (nicely situated half way between Perth and Margaret River), Ryan is a full-time professional musician, specialising in private events; weddings, birthdays, engagements and anniversaries. He also performs at corporate functions and casual social events.

Ryan began learning guitar at the age of 15.

By 19, he began his music career as a guitar teacher. He taught privately and at a local high school in the South West, after which he moved to Perth where he taught for a further 10 years.

During this time he performed in various bands and for numerous musical projects.

To further his expertise, he began to study a Diploma in Music Business. It was here he discovered his love for expressing art through the acoustic guitar.

"There is just something magical about acoustic instruments. The way it feels, the rich sound, the warmth and clarity, the effort it takes to make it sing. You really have to work those fingertips, it's so delicate."

After performing at many different venues including breweries, pubs, taverns and luxurious waterfront restaurants, Ryan held a Friday night residency at Fremantle's very popular 'Sail & Anchor' for a year and a half.

From here, he decided to put his focus on performing at weddings, corporate functions and private events.

Ryan is also working with Perth-based songstress Kama Austen as a duo (see video below).

He is happy to discuss play lists with clients and will learn new songs as requested to fit particular requirements.

Thank you for your professionalism and dealing with all my emails over the past few months! You were so easy to work with, especially with all the possible last minute changes!"
