Portaferry native Ryan McMullan is set to release his second single ‘Rebellion’ from his forthcoming album (due for release in 2020) on 6th of September 2019.
Written with and produced by one of Northern Ireland’s finest; Iain archer, who has co-written songs such as Snow Patrol’s classic ‘Run,’ and James Bay’s ‘Hold Back The River’ as well as having won two Ivor Novello Awards and been nominated for a third for his work with Snow Patrol, James Bay and Jake Bugg. “Iain is an incredible writer; one of the best in the business in my opinion, and getting to work with such an incredible writer and artist was a joy. Here’s hoping we get to do it again.”
Having just returned from opening up for Northern Irish Royalty; Snow Patrol on their European and American legs, Ryan returns to open for the band’s shows in Australia, New Zealand and Asia, But this time with a twist. John McDaid, snow Patrol’s piano player, recently had major neck surgery forcing him to take time out from touring. And to avoid cancelling shows, the band have asked Ryan to step in as an Honorary member of the band to fill in for John.
With plaudits from the likes of Ed Sheeran, who called Ryan’s voice a ‘rare jewel,’ and Gary Lightbody, who likened his voice to that of an angel, it seems that Ryan McMullan is building real momentum on the road to a lasting career.
