Ryan Melendez is a singer/songwriter who flys by day and plays music by night. He has been playing guitar ever since he can remember and is an old soul at heart.
As a baby, Ryan grew up around the band Crosby, Stills, and Nash and his father had a plane co-owned by David Crosby, and thus his love for flying and music was born.
In 2015, Ryan was diagnosed with Very High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. At the time, Ryan was starting his Senior year of highschool and was on track to play collegiate golf at a D1 school. Throughout his cancer journey, Ryan turned to music to help him through the hardships of battling cancer.
Today, Ryan continues to enjoy his passion of playing music while pursuing his dreams of flying!
