Since January 2013 itís testament not only to its inherent melodic rock/pop strengths but also to Ryanís durable presence on the gig circuit, where amidst his own energy-driven, charismatic shows, he has joined The Script, Bryan Adams, Simply Red as special guest amongst others and most recently joined Rea Garvey as special guest on his European tour.
Ryan and Mayson guitars joined forces in the summer of 2014 following a meeting with the Irish Distributor for Mayson. Ryan fell in love with the guitars with his biggest problem trying to decide on just one! In the end Ryan chose MS7/SCE2
as his gigging guitar.
2015 will see the launch of the much anticipated second album from Ryan. There are also plans for more tours to Europe and even Australia.
The future is bright!
