Our Story

Mande!!!!  Quite some time back, a few friends of Ryan's had come over for a party.  A friend brought his wife and kids over, and planned on not staying long. He walked in the door and there stood Mande. To his and his wife's surprise, it was a friend that they had not seen for about 15 years. They decided to stay for the picking party!
     Mande also met another friend at the party. They started dating after the party, and have been together since. 
     So, the three friends decided to build a group after the party. We each were One Degree From Mande by different paths in life. Our paths had then been crossed. 
     Thus, the birth of ODFM!!!

      Ryan Paul Wilson has written quite a few tunes under this band name. His songs have been played in many different styles due to different genres of musicians he's played with. A constant morphing musician, look for his future stuff to come!!
