Ryan Adcock's 10th Anniversary

This month, my favorite local singer-songwriter is celebrating his ten-year anniversary as an artist and performer.

Ryan Adcock, an acoustic-folky, pop artist that fans of Dave Matthews, John Mayer and Rob Thomas would enjoy, will be playing a free show on Saturday, October 18 at the College Hill Coffee Company, located on Hamilton Avenue.

Over the years, Ryan has played over 600 shows, released five albums (with a sixth on the way), and won a number of awards (including CEA's, the Cammy's and the John Lennon Songwriting Contest). His music has also been featured in tv shows, movies, and he even played to 2.5 million listeners on Mitch Albom's Radio Show.

He has made quite a name for himself all over the midwest, and along the way, has made many friends in the local music community. Many of Cincinnati's best artist's and producer's have joined him in the creation and production of some of his album's, which only brings out the very best in what he is capable of.

Before the 2008 MidPoint Festival, I contacted Ryan about doing an interview, to let my reader's get to know who Ryan is as a person. You can read that interview by clicking here.

For nearly the first half of his career, Ryan played with an exceptional backing band, which included none other than the beautiful Kim Taylor on background vocals. The second half of his career, Ryan has been going at it alone, giving his live show a more intimate feeling, when you see one barefoot man alone onstage with his guitar.

Ryan has some special things planned for this anniversary show, so why would you want to miss one of Cincinnati's premiere storytelling songwriter's? Did I mention that this show is free?
