ALLY RYAN TALKS FAVOURITE ARTISTS & DEBUT SINGLE “WASTED” 31

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!

RAG N BONE MAN CONFIRMED FOR 2018 BRIT AWARDS 13

We are so pleased to announce the 2017 winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough awards Rag’n’Bone Man will be performing live at this year’s award ceremony on 21 February. He will join an already exceptional line-up which so far includes Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith and Stormzy.

In the last year, Rag’n’Bone Man has broken the record for fastest-selling UK male debut of the decade with his 3x Platinum No. 1 album  ‘Human’ which has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Rag’n’Bone Man said: “Jheez! 2017 has flown by super quick. Its pretty mental to think that I bagged two awards at The BRITs last year and now I’m heading back to perform. I’m looking forward to being a part of the celebration with everyone. It’s going to be a good one for sure!”

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Rory epitomises how dreams can come true. He has had the most amazing 12 months and I’m so delighted to see him back where it all started.”

The 38th BRIT Awards will be hosted by Jack Whitehall at The O2, London and broadcast live on ITV. We can’t wait for Rag’n’Bone Man to bring his talent to the stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and includes live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.

FOO FIGHTERS CONFIRMED FOR BRIT AWARDS 2018 26

We are so delighted to announce that four-time BRIT winners and one of the world’s most successful bands Foo Fighters will perform on The BRITs stage for the first time on 21 February.

The international superstars will deliver one of their legendary live performances alongside performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

Foo Fighters have sold more than 25 million records and sold out countless world tours. The band’s acclaimed ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’ was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries.

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

With four BRIT Awards under their belt winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015 we can’t wait for Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee to bring the incredible Foo Fighters energy to The BRITs stage.
