Groove – Episode #80: Ryan Madora
You would think that Ryan Madora and I have been pals for many years. We are not. This is the first time that we’ve had the chance to connect, which is strange because both of us have been working here, at No Treble, for many years. In fact, Ryan has been a columnist here for a decade! There’s a reason why thousands of bassists rely on her writing and content here.
Ryan got started with an informal education on the Philadelphia blues scene before moving to New York to study Music Business and Communications at New York University. After graduating, she returned to Philly for a few years before throwing her gear in the car and moving to Tennessee. Since moving to Nashville in 2012, she has had the privilege of working with artists like Garth Brooks, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Hanson, and many others. She is currently touring with guitar virtuoso Robben Ford.
In 2019, she published her first book, Bass Players To Know – Learning From The Greats.
If that weren’t enough, Ryan was voted “6th Best Bassist of 2020” by Bass Player Magazine/Music Radar.
