Shawn Ryan

Shawn Ryan is quickly becoming one of the brightest stars in the jazz cabaret world having what the Beverly Hills Outlook calls “that charm that is rare!”. After winning the “2000 Bay Area Cabaret Competition” hosted by Piaf's Restaurant and Cabaret, San Francisco embraced Shawn Ryan as “the hottest young cabaret singer to hit the scene!”. This dazzling performer combines classic standards and insightful comedy for an unforgettable evening of jazz, cabaret, and comedy.

Shawn studied acting at the famed American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. While at school Shawn fell in love with New York?s Cabaret scene. Although the school strictly prohibited students from performing while in the program, Shawn could not resist and at 18 years old, Shawn was sneaking into clubs to “sing for his supper”.
