Ryley Tate Wilson

Age: 16 Hometown: Montgomery, AL

Since he was a child, Ryley Tate has had a passion for music. He began by creating makeshift drum sets out of anything he could find, and by the age of four, he had moved on to playing the keyboard and guitar. Ryley Tate’s love for music was so strong that his mother created a cardboard keyboard for him to practice on whenever and wherever he could. As he grew older, he saved up money to buy recording software and taught himself the production side of music. While he plans on performing live when he gets his driver’s license, he is currently involved in local theater, regularly participating in musicals and singing with his church youth group.
