At 23 years old, The Kid Ryan isn't technically a kid. But with his boyish good looks and charm the name seems to fit. The hip-hop R&B singer is one of four artists signed to Fresno-based Tyme Records. His first single "Run That" was released last month and is getting airplay on about a dozen radio stations.
The basics: His real name is Ryan J. Garcia. He started singing in church, and he plays the drums, guitar and piano.
Affiliations: One of four artists signed to Tyme Records, which operates a recording studio on Shaw Avenue.
Releases: "Run That" is the first single from an upcoming EP titled "Cruise Control."
