Ryan McMullan // Saturday 24th September 2022 // Crown Live
Hailing from Portaferry, a small seaside town in Co. Down, Northern Ireland, – “where everybody knows your name,” Ryan McMullan is a fresh new talent on the singer/songwriter scene. The young Ryan abandoned his youthful passion for hurling in favour of music. These days, he’s one of the most exciting young singer-songwriters around, but was a self- confessed ‘late bloomer’ when it came to his musical career. McMullan may have spent his first few years playing catch-up, but admits that “music was always going to be a part of my life.”
With a voice reminiscent of Paolo Nutini and early Tom Waits, Ryan has been putting in the necessary graft in local pubs for a number of years. Having toured worldwide with some of the most well-known artists such as Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, Kodaline and Foy Vance. Ryan quickly understood the assignment and has since went on to have world tours of his own.
With his first album “Redesign” set to drop in September 2022 Ryan describes the album as “An album that was forever redesigning itself ; “Redesign” finally came to be. It began as a redesign of sound and aesthetic but quickly transformed into a redesign of the mind, so to speak. Taking on the challenges of feeling lonely, depression and confinement due to the pandemic, birthed true moments of love, hope and joy. A therapy in itself at a time when I needed it the most.”
Ryan has recently played two sold out Ormeau Park, Belsonic shows alongside Dermot Kennedy, two nights at the Waterfront Hall and completed a sell-out Irish Tour. It’s looking like it will be an incredible year for Ryan McMullan and it’s not stopping yet. Ryan McMullan will be making his first appearance in Wexford, Saturday 24th of September 2022. Tickets on sale from Friday 20th of May at 10am. This show is 18+.
