The Victorian-based country/alternative pop artist Ryan Daykin has already done some hard yards, his success to date being the result of
years of hard work and a determination to master the craft of real deal song writing that comes from the heart.
Ryan tells provocative stories that are sun-drenched with pure,honest expression, and are derived from his own life experiences and
personal encounters. To him it’s all about real, relatable experience that mark the essence of music, and with well over a decade’s worth
of impassioned song writing he is increasingly recognised for his ability to connect with his fans. From the high country of Victoria, Ryan emerged with the 2015 release of his debut EP ‘Dreams’ which received a strong critical
response from country radio and fans. This response was amplified with his follow up EP ‘Keeping Secrets’ released in 2019. The first
single from this, ‘Ain’t Gonna Miss Me’, made waves across national and international radio, peaking at #4 on the iTunes country charts. It
was featured on multiple Spotify’s editorial playlists, and for multiple weeks was the most-played song on ABC Country radio nationwide.
Ryan has had the pleasure of writing and sharing the stage with industry heavyweights such as Lyn Bowtell, Drew McAlister, Aleyce
Simmonds, Hayley Jensen, Kaylens Rain, MSquared (Michael Paynter & Michael Delorenzis) and Allan Caswell.
Ryan is by no means your run-of-the-mill, generic country artist. With an ‘outside the square’ approach to music, his mission is singular in that he seeks to perform good music that evokes a feeling and an emotion - and with a range of influences that stretch from Motown, to Shania Twain, and almost everything in between, Ryan’s writing and performances are as dynamic as they are captivating.
Ryan’s first release since 2019 is the new single ‘Broken Feathers’, written in collaboration with Felicity Urquhart. Produced by multiple Golden Guitar winning producer Matt Fell from LoveHZ studios, ‘Broken Feathers’ is a hauntingly beautiful track which explores the concept of heartbreaking loss and learning to live in the aftermath. With more exciting music and collaborations to come in the near future, you’ll want to keep your eye on Ryan Daykin.
