Hi there, my name is Ryan. Most people call me Yikky. I play bass and share the vocal for a band called Midwest Skies! As a recent college graduate, I'm pretty stoked to jump into the next chapter of my life. What's next? I have my ideas, but days like these won't last forever...

 

Officially back home from 12 awesome days on the road with @midwestskies. Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for my bandmates, my friends, family, and every single person who watched us play, promoted a show, or bought a shirt or a CD. A few years back, I made the difficult decision to put my college degree on the shelf and follow my lifelong passion of music with my best friends. Times like this remind me why I’ve followed a path less traveled. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Last Friday, we received an amazing opportunity to perform at the Auburn Hills stop of Warped Tour. It was an unreal experience, and we have all of you to thank for it! Thanks to everyone to came out to watch our set, both old friends and new! None of this would be possible without the support of our friends. We love you all!
