Stories from the heart sung with powerful vocals over a foot stompin' beat, coated with harmonies and topped with lap steel and fiddle licks.

Performing originals and covers, Ryan Chrys plays "country the way you like it," full of energy, great melodies and harmonies and lyrics that draw you in with stories and characters that are easy to relate to. His music is a great example of using the best elements of both modern country and traditional country to create a sound that is very current without slipping into a cookie cutter formula. It's his unique sound and passionate performances that have been generating consistent buzz and acclaim with music lovers throughout the state.

Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts bring forth new energy to country music fans who love the outlaws and heroes of old. Influenced by the songs and personalities of legends like Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash and driven with a deep love for blazing guitars, gritty lap steel and lightning fiddle, the band is a beacon for the next generation of classic hearts. This is Modern Outlaw Country.

"Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts put on one of the day's best performances on the Strainwise stage."
- Colorado Music Buzz (Higher Ground Music Festival 2013)?

"Chrys's deep vocal delivery recalls Shooter Jennings. Taking cues from outlaw-country pioneers like Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Chrys and company lay down a collection of fueled-up twangy numbers alongside some heartfelt ballads."
- Westword Magzine (division of Village Voice)

"Ryan Chrys' career as a Colorado musician has mostly been in the background of bands, until the guitar solo. He is a guitarist's guitarist, a country rock ax man. ...he's branched out on his own with A Lick and a Promise, an impressive album of country rock songs.."
- The Denver Post

"Ryan Chrys on guitars and vocals is a standout."
- Colorado Music Buzz Magazine

Ryan prides himself both on his word of mouth reputation and great relationships with venues and promoters throughout Colorado. A typical show starts with timely communication with the promoter and follows through to an inspired performance where the audience unites in front of the stage to dance, cheer and embellish in the feeling of good music, good people, and good livin'.
