About Ryan Balthrop

Ryan Balthrop draws inspiration from his southern upbringing in Mobile, Alabama, and from his years living and performing in the Eastern Caribbean.

His debut solo album, due out this summer, presents a sophisticated blend of Americana, folk, blues, and a taste of the islands. He has performed over 150 shows a year with various southeastern bands since 1994, and is finally coming into his own with this long awaited solo effort.

The album spans several genres, and represents Balthrop’s powerful songwriting capabilities. His soulful, sometimes delicate vocals, drive home the themes that intertwine to create an atmosphere of inner reflection and emotion. Still the themes relate to a wide audience, speaking to all of us, who have lost, and continued to love. Balthrop also expresses a fascination for the afterlife, and a belief in the rewards that await us there.

Balthrop is accompanied by Mississippi native, multi-instrumentalist, Brooks Hubbert. Hubbert is also a singer/songwriter and fluent on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, ukelele, and harmonica.



What Passengers Think

We have been on RLC since day 1, we were a little skeptical about doing this, we had never cruised before! We met friends that are now like family, the music has always been over the top! We have never had a bad experience, this is just beautifully done! We will be going as long as you will be doing this cruise!!!
