Drums and Composer
Hi my name is Ryan Simon I play drums and I am the newest addition to The Renee’ Plant Band. I have ventured into so many different genres of rock music from soft to hard, from metal to industrial, from blues to progressive rock and have dabbled in some heavier stuff as well.I was pretty young when Stewart Copeland of the Police caught my ear. From that moment on I knew I wanted to be a drummer and have strived to better myself ever since. Work ethic baby!!
Kyle Jon Hunt
Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals and Composer
Adorned with minimal tattoos, piercings and hair but not lacking for want of more Kyle provides the tube overdriven guitar squeals. Once asked what he wanted to do with the rest of his life Kyle responded "This." Kyle is also a rabid fan of Law and Order, all of them. When not surfing the satellite guide for L and O's he might have missed, he likes to channel Jack McCoy's anger through his guitar.
