Ryan Bird Short Info

Singer/Songwriter based in Newcastle and Leeds. I write heartfelt songs which are a reflection of my own life experiences, in the hopes that others can and will relate. This isn't a money maker for me, this is what I love to do. I have been gigging extensively since 2012 and have independently recorded and released 2 EPs, which have gained local and national media attention on Radio, TV and magazine publications. I've done interviews on student and national radios and TV stations, and have recorded a full live session for BBC Introducing. I played Evolution Emerging in the northeast in 2014 and was part of a selected 40 applicants out of the 500 that applied, after local tastemakers, including BBC introducing presenters, decided on the lineup. I'm still gigging and have recently done festival shows, as well as a Sofar Sounds Session which was featured on their main YouTube channel.

Currently looking for more shows in the run up to my 3rd EP release.

"Ryan Bird is a young bloke from Gateshead with immense promise if this EP (Lessons) is anything to go by. There are five tracks on this release which show his total command of singer/songwriterly ways; nothing flash, just quietly beautiful melodies and his voice is eminently listenable. He puts me in mind of the very excellent Teitur (from the Faroe Islands) which bodes well." - The Crack Magazine, Newcastle
