Favorite Musical Moment The first time we performed Carolina Girls in a pizza shop on this year's fall retreat was probably my favorite musical moment with the group so far. It was the first time I performed with TIGEROAR, and there was something special about making music for an audience with a group of guys I'd only watched before.

Favorite Non-Musical Moment My favorite non-musical moment with TIGEROAR was when we were in an Aldi buying food for this year's fall retreat. The culmination of silly arguments over sausage logs, pre-made burgers, and the absence of charcoal still makes me laugh. Got to give it to Aldi: it was the cheapest grocery trip for 15 guys I've ever been on.

Favorite Quote "I'm in a heated, existential discussion with a dead-eyed, plastic desk toy." - Megamind

FULL BIO

Ryan Michael is a Freshman Biological Sciences (Pre-Dental) major from West Chester, Pennsylvania.

He's a member of the Clemson University SINGERS and is involved in the Pre-Dental club. Ryan began singing in his Freshman year of high school. He became a member of his church youth choir, both his school's chamber and concert choirs, and his school's musical program. He has made it through districts, regionals, states, and all-easterns in his home state of Pennsylvania. Ryan has been leads in 3 musicals, performed at the Wells Fargo Center and Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, and led his high school's men's ensemble while also being an active participant in his high schools a-capella group "Knights of A-Capella". Ryan hoped to one day find a group of guys as enthusiastic about music as he was, and found that group with TIGEROAR. Ryan can’t wait for all the memories he is going to make with the group!
