Gary and Daniel first met in Germany. Gary who was born in London, decided to go over to further his career as an actor and landed a role in the hit musical Starlight Express in Bochum. It was clear from an early age that Gary would have a successful career as a singer, so whilst enjoying his time in the production he began to follow his love of music and was introduced to Daniel a guitarist from Bochum/Germany.

Daniel is a budding Songwriter/Musician who is very passionate about his music and enjoys being a DJ at many clubs and Germany’s largest fares. Daniel spends a lot of time in his recording studio, writing and producing songs for his own music projects....

The boys became really good friends and realised that they had a great writing chemistry and could create great songs - so in 2007 they decided to combine their devotion for music and started working on “Hook Ryder”

The “Hook Ryder” sound has a blend of funky house vibes with a Pop element mixed with a touch of Old Skool and some contagious catchy soulful vocals for your pleasure.

“Hook Ryder” are set to make a few heads turn with their unique and exciting hooky sound, which has made them one of the hottest new acts to look out for.
