Examining life's big questions with an equal measure of sincerity and absurdity. Mystics or fools? Ryan Spielman, a spiri-folk-rock singer/songwriter explores life's big questions and pokes fun at our human foibles. His music has hints of eastern spirituality, psychology, philosophy, satire and straight up comedy. His songs will make you think and make you laugh. And Liz, she just likes the attention.
After 20 years as a successful yoga teacher and a failed guru (not a single disciple to speak of) Ryan recorded his debut album, Lonely Guru, the result of a wonderful and unexpected mid-life pivot with humorous, quirky and ultimately uplifting perspectives on life. His live performances engage the audience with rock, blues, folk, audience participation, philosophy and humour. Ryan also teaches a regular schedule of classes at triyoga.
