Ryan Sheridan leapt from the street to centre stage headline act in less than a thousand days. As a gifted and inventive guitarist, he has combined his dazzling six-string skills with a jet-propelled percussive attack to create a unique sound that has thrilled packed houses from Dublin to Dusseldorf. A born entertainer, this passionate singer with a gift for storytelling is a commanding stage presence. With his acoustic-driven, anthemic, twenty-first century rock ‘n’ roll, with it’s roots deep in rhythm and blues, Ryan Sheridan is able to connect with audiences wherever he is seen and heard.
Sheridan’s debut album – ‘The Day You Live Forever’ – was released in 2011. Fuelled by the massive hits ‘Jigsaw’ and ‘The Dreamer’, the album went on to achieve platinum status in Ireland. 2012 saw deals done with Universal Music in Europe and Australia, and ‘The Day You Live Forever’ climbed to the top of the German charts.
With a teenage apprenticeship as a dancer, it is no surprise that rhythm underpins the music of Ryan Sheridan. His songs are torn from the pages of a passport seeking out the wonders of life, from joy to sorrow, and all stations inbetween. Classic high-energy explosions such as ‘Stand Up Tall’ are now balanced with haunting ballads like ‘2 Back To 1′ and the heartfelt longing of ‘Home'; specially commissioned by Brendan O’Carroll as the love theme for ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys: D’Movie’.
