Named “Best Group/Duo” in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market.  It was there that Ryan Green and Cameron Hood were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene.

The two first met in high school, where they were separated not just by a grade (Hood being a year older) but by a respectful rivalry between their two rock bands.  Hood and Green would face off annually in the Battle Of The Bands, and although Hood’s band would ultimately win two out of the three competitions, Green managed to impress him and the rest of the school with his abilities on the guitar, which would ultimately earn him a scholarship to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music.

They soon took this high-energy, highly-interactive street-performers approach to the college market, where they quickly became one of the most popular bands on the circuit, playing upwards of 130 college dates a year.  Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.” 

While currently residing in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (You can decide for yourself which is most accurate.)  Check them out at https://www.ryanhood.com
