Ryan Barrett has been drumming for over 17 years. As an undergraduate at Whitman College, WA he played a mixture of classic rock, blues, and funk around campus. He backed the school theater production “the Altruists” and studied with Head of Percussion, Spencer Martin.
After returning to the Twin Cities, Ryan joined the local gigging scene, playing with a variety of local rock groups and frequenting avenues like 7th St. Entry, Maylacks and The Turf Club before finding his home with Sawyer’s Dream.
Ryan’s impeccable timing and unique style definitely gives Sawyer’s Dream a sound of its own.
