Ryan Perea

About Ryan...

Ryan Perea began his musical journey playing in a punk rock band in Brooklyn throughout the early 2000’s.  After nearly a decade in NYC he moved home to Louisiana to pursue a career as a portrait painter.  During quarantine Ryan rediscovered his love of songwriting and has been working diligently at his new “hobby” ever since.  His songs are rooted in alternative rock but have a southern flare. They tend to be driving and melodic with an aim to make the listener feel something in their bones.  


Ryan still works as a professional artist and teaches Talented Art at Northshore High in Slidell.  He lives in Covington with his lovely wife Heather and their amazing little girl Harper.

Al’s alter ego “Abdul D. Tentmakur” has performed his Saint’s songs for years at the Superdome live on WWL 870 am radio before each Saint’s home game. He has recorded six “Abdul” CD’s and donated the proceeds (over $35K) to local charities.

Al is now playing regularly all along the Gulf Coast with Jon Sorey, as the Duo “Birdie’s Boyz”.  Their music can make you smile, laugh, cry, and dance all in the same evening, with a song list that spans the ages, from Johnny Cash to Kid Rock. 

Al is now starting to focus on writing original songs, and performing at local songwriter festivals.
