Ruthless Cupid EP out now!
The Ruthless Cupid EP is an all-out attack on the most famous matchmaker of all time, Cupid. Ryan explains the theme of single ‘In A Heartbeat’ saying, ‘It was written to sum up a stage I think we all kind of go through sooner or later: the understanding that something that once was, is now no more. But even at the end knowing it still has a hold on you, so much so, that no matter how toxic it is, or how little sense it made, you’d still run back to it in a desperate attempt to salvage it.’
Over the last few years Ryan McMullan has been making a name for himself as a gifted songwriter and exceptional singer. 2019 was a huge year for the Portaferry native, with the success of his single ‘Rebellion’, and ‘Make A Mark’, his collaboration with Beoga. He has toured non-stop, playing his own sold-out shows in Dublin and Belfast and playing support slots with The Coronas on their Long Way Home tour in Ireland. He also opened for Snow Patrol in the USA, Europe and Asia and stood in as an honorary member of the band when guitarist Johnny McDaid was recovering after surgery. It’s no wonder that Ryan is now being recognised as one of Northern Ireland’s biggest and brightest talents.
Fresh from returning to Belfast after 4 years spent forging a music career in London, Conor Scott is back and ready.
A distinctive vocal range of dulcet melodies to powerful heart-wrenching chants and with pulsating guitar rhythms. The 26 year-old singer/songwriter dwells bang centre within the Indie-Pop-Folk-Rock spectrum and most definitely is an act to catch live. Either when standing solo with just an acoustic guitar displaying the emotive release of his balladic infused jams or with full band capturing a complete sonic & visual representation of infectious grooves and transcendental singalongs.
Headlining shows in London, Derry and Belfast, as well as touring UK & Europe with Ryan McMullan as well as supporting acts such as Hudson Taylor and Little Hours, it had been a busy 2019 for Conor with momentum strongly building going into 2020. Then the pandemic hit. Instead of getting out and touring further, Conor has spent this year focusing on writing and production. His lockdown release of EP ‘Life Now’ highlighted this new sound with great praise across traditional and social media, such as Clash & Hot Press as well as achieving significant playlisting on Spotify and Irish Radio. A gathered excitement that is rapidly rebuilding the momentum lost due to the pandemic is certainly continuing to grow further as more releases and the hopeful return to gigging later in the year certainly looks imminent.
