Following two sell out nights at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall and a sold out Millennium Forum show in 2021, Ryan is pleased to announce a new headline show at the Millennium Forum, Derry on 03rd November 2022. The acclaimed Northern Irish singer and songwriter Ryan releases his new EP, Debut Mix Tape in early 2022.
Four years in the making, Ryan McMullan: Debut centres around four days of recording and listening in Cruit Island, County Donegal at the end of 2019, where Ryan and his team work through the songs competing for a place on his album. The cast includes artist and mentor Foy Vance, and manager and drummer Paul ‘Hammy’ Hamilton. Interspersed is the bigger story of Ryan’s rise to fame including footage from his support tours with Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol. Debut had its debut World premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh on Sat 24th July followed by a ‘cinema tour’ and aired on BBC NI.
Debut Mix Tape is a six track EP featuring songs from the film that aren’t on Ryan’s forthcoming debut album, which is called Redesign and is due to be released in early 2022. The songs on the EP form part of the soundtrack to the documentary and are older songs from Ryan’s growing catalogue. He sees them a bonus for fans, a chance to enjoy songs that mean a lot to him but didn’t make the final cut.
Ryan just played to 40,000 people with Dermot Kennedy at Belsonic this September followed by sold out shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leicester. He also embarked on his Sold Out Irish tour including a hotly anticipated turn in Dublin’s Olympia on Friday October 29th and two gigs at Belfast’s Waterfront on Friday November 19th and Saturday November 20th.
