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...

 

Day 1 of Launch Music Conference: I met Matt Greiner, drummer for August Burns Red, a band that has had a profound influence on me, including inspiration for my first tattoo. AWESOME. I may have fangirled. #AugustBurnsRed #LaunchMusicConference

Midwest Skies met in 2007 at Grand Valley State University, but official came together as the pop punk trio in 2009. We started out playing some covers at college parties, then decided to start writing some originals. Our first official show as a band was in May of 2009, opening for a tour package consisting of The Secret Handshake, The Bigger Lights, The Dangerous Summer, and The Morning Of (The No Parents, No Rules Tour) in Louisville, KY.
