Jimmy Ryan

Chicago-based Electric Guitar legend

We are pleased to announce the signing of Jimmy Ryan, legendary Chicago-based Blues/Rock guitarist, to the growing artist roster at Salvatori Productions. 

Known for a focus on harmony lead guitar work with brother Johnny, Jimmy has a rich history of recording and performing original Blues/Rock (along with some really great covers…) across Chicagoland and the Midwest with their band, The Flyin’ Ryan Brothers, as well as his solo releases, over the years.

With our signing, we have captured the quieter side of Jimmy’s composing and playing skills by announcing the release of his all-instrumental “The Healing Guitar” album, which features a more contemplative side of Jimmy, along with long-time band mate and percussionist Dan Van Schindel, in the studio. 

And, while we were at it, we also showcase Jimmy’s new works smack dab in the middle of nature by creating a 28-minute ‘Healing Guitar in Nature Suite’ certain to help you get the knots out of your rope…which is slang for meditative and soul soothing.
