Here we are again with another instalment of my iTunes library. Today I’m not covering an album, but an artist. So let me introduce….

Ryan McMullan is an Irish Singer-Songwriter from Portaferry in Northern Ireland. I first saw Ryan Mcmullan when I went to see Ed Sheeran at the O2 in May earlier this year. He was the opening act which was very annoying because I missed the start of his performance due to the mass of people trying to get into the Arena.
I absolutely love him and I really hope he gets the recognition that he deserves. He has a raw voice and his songs really do tell a story. A true singer-songwriter. He only has a couple of EP’s out and a single, so its still early days for him. Although I love what he has recorded, I think he sounds far better live when it is all acoustic with a dead quiet audience.
On his Youtube channel, you must check out his ‘Oh Susannah (Live)’ video. It is filmed in a big empty hall with no backing music, just him, his guitar and his voice. The range of his vocals is incredible and I way prefer that version that the recorded single. He needs to produce an all acoustic album like that. You should also be able to find him on Spotify and iTunes, I bought everything that he had available!
I really do hope you check him out, such a great artist with an exciting future ahead. Until next time – folks.
