'LESS OF A STRANGER' DEBUTS IN TOP 70 ON BDS CANADIAN COUNTRY CHART

Following the success of his last three singles “Last Forever”, "Slow Down" & "I Ain't Mad", Newfoundland Americana-Country artist Chris Ryan teamed up with co-writer Davor Vulama (CYMBA Music Publishing) to release the upbeat summer single “Less of a Stranger”.

“Less of a Stranger'', was written during the COVID-19 pandemic, amid lockdowns and across time zones.  This was a unique experience for both myself and my co-writer Davor to say the least !  At its core, the song is about seeing that one person walk into a bar that you automatically want to know more about.  The song's inspiration though was me thinking about life getting back to normal and being able to do those simple things we all missed doing over the last year, like having that memory making, spontaneous good time with friends and strangers. - Chris Ryan
