Ryan Downey

THE DEFINING FEATURE OF RYAN DOWNEY’S MUSIC IS HIS VOICE, A JAW-DROPPING AMALGAMATION OF LEONARD COHEN AND A SPIRITED BILL CALLAGHAN BY WAY OF A MID-CENTURY CROONER. WHETHER IT’S SORROW WITH SATISFACTION OR EARNESTNESS WITH INNUENDO, PARALLELS CONTINUOUSLY MEET AND ENTWINE THROUGHOUT HIS PERFECT COMBINATION OF POP, ROCK AND FOLK. RYAN HAS CREATED A MUSICAL WORLD UNLIKE ANY THAT YOU’VE HEARD. HIS SONGS ARE AS CLOSE TO EMOTIONAL AND MUSICAL PERFECTION AS YOU’RE LIKELY TO HEAR ON A RECORD THIS YEAR.


 
 

Running (2018)

RUNNING (RYAN’S DEBUT ALBUM) IS A GLORIOUS AND PERFECTLY CONSTRUCTED 21ST CENTURY FOLK GEM, NOT A NOTE DETRACTS FROM DOWNEY’S RICH BARITONE AS HE SINGS A SONG CYCLE OF HUMOUR AND PATHOS. SELF-ANALYSIS, SEX, LOVE AND MODERN LIFE.

PRODUCED BY STEVE HASSETT (LULUC) AND RECORDED IN BOTH NEW YORK AND MELBOURNE, RUNNING REVEALS RYAN DOWNEY AS A TIMELESS TALENT. AN INCREDIBLE DEBUT FROM AN ARTIST CAPABLE OF BALANCING CHEEK AND SINCERITY, CLASSICISM AND SWAGGER AND GRANDEUR AND RESTRAINT ALL WITHIN A SINGLE, COMPOSED BREATH.
