Indie Artist Ryan & Willie, and Indie Artist Gerald Harris Are On Air!

26 minutes



Ryan & Willie formed in the smoky dives around the Five Points area of East Nashville in 2010. The duo consists of Ryan Waniata (vocals, guitar) and Willie Guy Arnot (multi-instrumentalist).  What initially started as two songwriters pitching songs to the Row evolved into something entirely different. Although both have a profound love for country music, they found they weren’t satisfied sticking solely to one genre. Their shared love of rock, blues, folk, RnB, funk and jazz drove them to explore where their writing could take them. Ryan & Willie have set a goal of releasing EPs that are each in a new genre.  Their first EP, Amuse Boot was released in March of 2021. It showcases both their lyrical stylings and quirky arrangements. In January of 2022, Ryan & Willie released their second EP, Fall in the Void. The second EP saw them ditching the acoustic arrangements for a full-out rocker. Fall in the Void also features Moon Taxi’s Wes Bailey (keys) and Tyler Ritter (drums).





Gerald Harris' father bought him an acoustic guitar when he was 12 years old, and Gerald has been on a musical journey ever since. His mother taught him to play piano and sing, and in his youth, he was a part of both the youth and adult choirs. When he was 18 years old Carrie Records offered him an independent recording contract to record a single. After a short-lived R&B career, he went back where he belonged, to God.

He's always enjoyed writing, playing, and singing gospel music, and he began doing gospel recording sessions for different choirs, artists, and producers in Nashville TN.and Atlanta Ga. After that, he continued to write and compose, and his wife persuaded him to go back to the studio and do a few demos.
