PRESENTED BY JAMES MAAD
'Ryan O'Reilly, from Southampton, England, is a songwriter who's Irish parentage and English upbringing combines to create a passionate storyteller, with dark humour sewn deep into the fabric of his searingly honest lyrics. Ryan's reputation as a songwriter grew and the adventure took another unexpected turn which recently resulted signing to Qatar's first indie label, DNA records. His music collaborations with producer David Granshaw and band mate Tyler Kyte lead to a depth of sound that takes the songs into a world of their own and far beyond the simple tag of singer-songwriter. Ryan unleashes at his live shows and the poetry of his records, reviews often mention tears of laughter and sadness in equal measure.
Ryan toured extensively across Europe the last few years, supporting Lissie, King Charles, Arkells, Matthew & The Atlas, The Rural Alberta Advantage and headlining shows with his band in Germany, Sweden and the UK. The debut album 'The Northern Line' featured the singles 'The One', 'November' and 'Sometimes Things Just Happen' and entered the German Airplay charts.
Recorded between the chaos and bustle of a New York cinema on Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn and the windswept loneliness on the south-side of the Isle of Wight in the spring of 2017, I Can't Stand The Sound is the second album from Ryan. The album is an exploration in searching for meaning, the meaning in a fatal car accident, the beauty and darkness on the streets of Berlin, comprehending the American landscape at the end of 2016 and trying to filter out the noise of relentless opinions on 24 hour news TV and online.
I Can't Stand the Sound will be out on DNA Records on 26 January 2018.
