WHO IS CHRIS RYAN?
Since the release of his self titled debut album, Chris Ryan has caught the attention of the East Coast music industry, playing showcases during East Coast Music Week and Music Newfoundland and Labrador Week, along with receiving nominations for "Country Recording of the Year" and "Songwriter of the Year". Chris' songwriting skills allowed him to be part of the 2016 ECMA SOCAN Song House, working with Nashville’s songwriting guru Ralph Murphy. This also led to Chris touring with Canadian country artist Kelly Prescott from Canada to Tennessee and co-writing in Nashville. Chris was recently selected to participate in the 2019 edition of the Canadian Song Conference's "Canadian Songwriter Challenge", co-writing with artists from across Canada in Charlottetown, PEI.
Numerous singles from Chris' debut album continue to receive regular rotation on radio stations in Canada and he was an East semi-finalist in the 2018 SiriusXM - Canadian Country Music Association "Top of the Country" Project.
Chris' 2018 single "Last Forever" peaked in the 70's on the BDS Canadian Country Music chart and his follow-up release "Slow Down" did even better, landing in the 60's. Chris was on the road accompanying Sierra Noble for the Johnny Reid "My Kind of Christmas" tour across Canada in November and December 2019 and is currently writing songs for his next release in 2021.
