Ryan Kijanka is an Asheville based composer and bassist. He has been composing original music and performing in bands since he began studying music in his formative years while residing in Connecticut. After spending some time teaching on the Navajo Nation in Arizona, he moved to the Asheville area and began composing for and playing with local musicians of several different genres. Today Ryan is part of several bands, and playing with some of Western North Carolina's finest musicians. Be it jazz, rock, funk, bluegrass, folk, tango, classical, or any other genre you can think of, you are likley to see Ryan on a bandstand most evenings.
"At The Breakfast Bar" is a representation of Ryan's time in the jazz world in Asheville. The musicians included on the album are those who Ryan has played with the most consistantly since moving the the area over six years ago. Although Ryan's composition and arragranging have been recorded on several albums, this is the first album to consist entirely of Ryan's orginal music.
