Ryan McMullan’s voice is in a class of its own; clear and powerful, soul-stirring and soaring over the captivating melodies that he crafts. It’s no wonder that he is now being recognised as one of Northern Ireland’s biggest and brightest talents. Ryan’s sublime voice has won him plaudits from fellow musicians including Gary Lightbody who called him ‘one of the most exciting artists to come out of Northern Ireland...voice of an angel’, and Ed Sheeran who said ‘Ryan’s voice is a rare jewel to find. He’s such an exceptionally gifted natural born artist.’
Ryan has a unique ability to tell stories with his songs, and his skill for crafting evocative pop/ folk gems is clear. His recent singles have been immensely successful with ‘Bowie on the Radio’ receiving almost 8 million streams. Ryan also loves collaborating with other writers as can be seen from his recent hit with Beoga, ‘Make a Mark’ and his own singles 'Oh Susannah' and ‘Bowie on the Radio’ which were written with Foy Vance. After this string of hit singles, Ryan’s fans eagerly await his debut album which will be forthcoming in 2020.
