ALLY RYAN TALKS FAVOURITE ARTISTS & DEBUT SINGLE “WASTED” 155

Continuing to share a powerful and deeply important message, especially to the younger generation, via her debut single “Wasted”, Ally Ryan has earned herself a growing following across several social media platforms with fans on both sides of the Atlantic drawn to her feisty and funny personality, and her music that holds a lot of meaning. ThisIsTheLatest caught up with her to find out more about her musical influences and future release plans.

TITL: Who Is Ally Ryan?

Ally Ryan: Hah! I ask myself that every day! All I know is that I am a young, passionate and mighty stubborn artist who wakes up every-day and tries to navigate through this crazy life with as much poise and ease as possible. I am still learning and still growing every day.

TITL: When did you start making music?

AR: My first time in the studio was around the age of twelve! It was my first full fledge writing and recording session, and I became obsessed with the process from then on.

TITL: Who are and have been your favourite artists over the years?

AR: Eeek! Such a hard one! It’s impossible to choose just one, so a few of my favorites are Prince, Frankie Valli, Chris Martin and Bon Iver. I could go on…

TITL: Who inspires you to accomplish your musical dreams and ambitions?

AR: Other than my musical influences, my family and friends inspire me the most i think! Their constant love and support motivates me more than anything!

TITL: You also have a rather comical side to you and a great sense of humour. Where does that come from?

AR: I am an absolute goof to put it lightly. Even at a young age I was always willing to make a complete fool of myself if it meant getting a laugh out of someone. My parents are some of the funniest people I know, so that probably has a lot to do with it. My mom used to tell me not to take myself too seriously, and I think I took that advice and ran with it!

TITL: How has living in LA helped boost your career?

AR: Los Angeles as a whole has changed and inspired my music in so many ways. I went from writing sad ballads in New York City, to writing fun dance pop records in LA. The energy and the creativeness that flows through Los Angeles has definitely impacted me in a great way.

TITL: What is the meaning behind your debut single “Wasted”? What did you want the song to stand for when you recorded it?

Wasted” is essentially about a love or relationship that is so intense that it becomes toxic. It’s easy to lose a part of yourself when in a relationship, and that’s kind of what this record touches on. The song was written by myself and some really talented writers as well as one of my favorite producers Andrew Underberg.

I wanted – and want – it to become somewhat of an anthem, especially for the younger generation. I think it’s important we realize how similar we are as humans and how similar our situations are that we go through.

TITL: Are there plans or an EP or album?

AR: There is!! We have no release date as of now, but it’s for sure on its way!

REVIEW: EMILY FAYE – ‘HERE I AM’ EP 39

Championed by Rolling Stone last year and named one of their ‘Ten New Country Artists You Need To Know’, Emily Faye’s passion for music stretches far beyond the short time she’s been in the spotlight as a star in her own right. Having gone from writing songs in her bedroom and studying at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute, she’s now released her debut EP called Here I Am.

Opening with “Open Road”, the collection gets off to a great and upbeat start, thanks to Faye’s soft, almost innocent vocal perfectly being perfectly paired with a toe-tapping country rhythm. “Giving In” is much slower, but maintains the EP’s focus on Faye’s vocal talents as she delivers the tracks’ strong, emotive lyrics that hold a a hint of defiance and rebellion in them.

“Game Over” is the kind of track that deserves to be played when listeners are taking a summer’s day drive with their friends. There’s an unmistakable ‘freedom and exploration’ vibe to the song – a perfect accompaniment to the upcoming summer break – that is sure to have the piece put on repeat.

Written about being comfortable with someone; a boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, or friend, who loves you for you, no matter what, there’s a reflective, deeply emotive and connective feel to closing number “Me For Me”, and as someone who has always struggled with self-confidence, the song reminded me that I have people in my life who wouldn’t and don’t want me to change who or how I am.

The EP as a whole has a very almost old-school, traditional feel to it, making it stand out from the many other releases of recent weeks and months that have focused more on the modern music styles which dominate the charts and the industry in general. The collection is a fantastic introduction to one of the hottest names in country music right now and will certainly have fans eager to see where Emily Faye goes and what she creates with her talent next.
