Ryland Moranz has come into his own in these strange times. A multi-instrumentalist and
singer-songwriter both in his own right as a solo artist and as an integral member of Leeroy Stagger’s potent alt. country outfit, Ryland spends considerable time traversing the highways and byways of Canada, the USA, and Europe. An intimate and powerful songwriter, Ryland has stepped into the great beyond; empathetically exploring his stories and the stories of others. Ryland’s beautiful January 2021 sophomore release, XO, 1945 takes a passionate look at the world we live in the the people whom inhabit it. XO, 1945 was nominated for contemporary folk album of the year (2022) by the Canadian Folk Music Association.
