During this year’s Britain’s Got Talent final, one hopeful was a marked contrast to the show’s reliably entertaining magicians, performing pets and dance squads – one man, an acoustic guitar and his own songs. Performing his moving self penned track ‘No Name’, 19-year-old Ryan O’Shaughnessy was as improbable as a lion turning up on Springwatch.
Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s new move appears just as unlikely – releasing a self-titled 6 track debut mini album of six original songs, all as sparse and beautiful as his ITV1 highlight would have his millions of new fans hoping for.
Debuting at #1 in the Irish Album Charts, Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s self titled debut is a collection of hauntingly delicate songs that see him comfortably sit next to the musical peers he admires, like Ed Sheeran and John Mayer. Ed Sheeran has even Tweeted his admiration for Ryan O’Shaughnessy online, saying of ‘No Name’: “Great voice, great song.”
It’s an ambition he’s almost certain to fulfil. He wanted to call the self-titled mini-album ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’ after a tattoo embedded on his side, only to find he’d beaten to it by a few previous bands. Still, it’s clear that Ryan O’Shaughnessy is certainly hungry. He already has plans for a full album which will feature more of his raucous songs.
“For me to have made something that has an emotional effect on people, making them happy, that’s where my satisfaction comes from,” he states.
