Joey Ryan

Irish multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Joey Ryan has been performing and writing music for the last decade. Currently based in Berlin, Germany, Ryan has spent the last year finishing off his second record of original material with producer Christian Best (Mick Flannery, O Emperor). The release of the album in Ireland was met with great reviews and radio support for lead single 'Tenderly', which was featured on such stations as Radio Nova, RTE Radio One, Cork's Red FM, South East Radio, Roddie Cleeres Irish Music Show, Beat FM, KCLR, iRadio Ireland and Northern Sound.

The new album ‘Fall Through the Night’ will be released in Germany in February 2017, with a nationwide German tour to follow in support.

Originally hailing from Wexford, Ireland Ryan has always found himself drawn to music. Picking up guitar at the age of seven, Ryan was brought up on a diet of Dylan, Springsteen, Billy Joel and Nina Simone to name a few from his parents collection which were always playing in the home.

At twenty years of age, Ryan self released his first album Morning Will Come Soon in 2012 to great acclaim. The following year was spent touring Ireland in support of this album which saw support slots to artists such as Jack L, Mick Flannery and Duke Special. Following on with the success of this campaign, The Redefine EP was released in 2014 under the guise of The Joey Ryan Trio. Lead single Stay Strong was released to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Ireland, and topped the iTunes Rock chart on the first day of its release. Not one to sit around, the Joey Ryan Trio did an extensive tour of Ireland in support of this single which included a support slot with internationally acclaimed band Bastille in Debarras Folkclub.

Ryan’s sound could be best described as having an atmospheric rock based aesthetic, whilst also incorporating acoustic tones. Ryan writes his guitar orientated music drawing from his influences which range from Springsteen to The National, Ryan Adams to Jeff Buckely and Tom Waits to Bon Iver. The last five years have seen Ryan broaden his touring circuit into Europe, with four tours of Germany completed in the last two years alone, as well as tours in the UK, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

Currently having relocated to Berlin, Ryan will be spending much of the next year touring in support of Fall Through the Night before releasing an EP in 2017.

Bryan Grayson

Bryan Grayson is a singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon currently based in Berlin Germany. He is modern day troubadour capable of captivating an audience with little more than his guitar, vocals, harmonica, and the innate ability to weave a melody and rhyme around a song and a story.

His career first began in his hometown of Portland, OR in 2010 where he performed and self released recordings until his ramblings took him across the country to meet his musical hero Todd Snider and fellow Portland native in Nashville, TN. It was here over the next seven years that he began to expand his musical horizons.

His music is held together by his guitar and voice and his love for great songwriting whether it be country, classical or jazz, rock or traditional music. His first album of original songs From The Outside In, was recorded in Portland, OR and Nashville) and self-released before setting out in 2013 for his first international tour of Europe.

He settled in Nashville and became a full time musician, gigging and putting together musicians to play as Bryan Grayson Band in the clubs around Music City. It was here he developed his craft as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist making a name for himself as a bluesy, intense and talented musical artist.

In 2016, he moved to Berlin, Germany and began playing live shows across Europe, including a tour through the Baltic states. In early 2017 he spent a month in Finland writing and recording his 2nd album: Waiting on a Sun to Rise which is set to be released in early 2018.

His style incorporates intricate guitar work, heartfelt vocals and a knack for storytelling which evokes the timelessness of past artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Willie Nelson.
