This New Hampshire native has toured from his home state to SXSW in Austin,Texas. LaPerle’s sound has been compared to such artist like John Mayer, Ray Lamontagne, Mat Kearny and Matt Wertz.
Ryan’s passion has always been to sing. As a child he would find himself singing Michael Jackson and other Mo-town favorites in the car with his mother. This passion has since grown and transcends when he’s on stage. In 2009, Ryan released and self produced his first full band EP “Disguise”. During the past four years, Ryan has won singer/songwriting contests throughout Boston and in 2010 became a SingerUniverse.com voice of the month.
Since living in the Boston area, Ryan has played venues such as Berklee’s Performance Center and Cafe 939, The Middle East, Club Passim, The Living Room in NYC and also colleges and Universities around the Northeast area like Bryant University and Daniel Webster College. Ryan can be found performing on local TV shows and has had his music featured on the New England Cable News Morning Show. Recently Ryan was scouted by a New York City talent agency to audition for The Voice and received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music.
In the upcoming year, Ryan is looking forward to booking shows throughout the nation and finishing up his third album in 2013.
