Born in the front-seat of a Buick on the streets of New York City, Rick Snyder learned at an early age that things don't always work out as planned.

Rick's parents gave him his first guitar, a Stella (which he still owns), on his 12th birthday. He calls that guitar "Little Blue" 'cause there was a little spot of blue paint on it when he got it. You can hear the whole story in his song of the same name.

Rick took that Stella, and he learned a few chords...learned some Hank Williams Jr. songs, some Taj, some Jesse Winchester songs, and found that he could entertain people by just workin' with what he got...which is just what he does in his song "Work With What You Got".

Rick was kind of a casual guitar player over the years...but always found himself playing for hours at parties to eager listeners while consuming serious quantities of bourbon or tequila. He became more serious about his playing (and his consumption) when he lived in Amsterdam on a houseboat that was full of musicians. The houseboat, situated in the infamous Red Light District, was known around town as the Music Boat, and musicians of all genres & nationalities would drop by to jam till the sun came up and then some.

A world traveller many times over, Rick busked the streets of Europe, Asia, the Middle East He played to audiences great & small (the people were great, the audiences small), and he learned that there was lots of money to be made in the music business.

As fate & necessity would have it, Rick gave up his guitar playing for many years to pursue other endeavors, but would always play till the wee hours when he got together with his old buddies from Amsterdam ...the ones who had survived. You can hear about it in his song "The Lesson".

He has written over 400 songs -- from Appalachia to Hip Hop -- and his mother thinks the stuff is "damn good!"

Being a multi-genre artist, Rick has created many different characters to fit the variety of music he plays. He's been called the Andy Kaufman of the music scene -- often referred to as Sybil -- through all his guises he always remains, unmistakably, Rick Snyder.

Rick didn't plan for all this to happen -- it just kinda did, like love...or a song.
