Ryan McMullan’s talent is a rare jewel in the crown of the current popular music scene. With a voice raw with story telling and filled with rich and varied tones, Ryan’s youth clearly doesn't deter from his ability to communicate story and emotion. Home to the likes of Foy Vance and Iain Archer, Northern Ireland is and always has been a hub of song writing talent. Ryan McMullan is no exception.

Hailing from Portaferry, a small seaside town in Northern Ireland, the 25 year old is a fresh new talent on the singer/songwriter scene. With a voice reminiscent of Paolo Nutini and early Tom Waits, Ryan has been putting in the necessary graft in local pubs for a number of years. With hugely successful recent support shows with Foy Vance and American alt-country rockers NEEDTOBREATHE, Ryan is fast gaining a reputation as an exciting talent. His debut EP Listen gives a taste of his musical ability and has been well received on these recent tours.

His voice and potential has recently caught the attention of other singer songwriters also born out of the grass roots Northern Ireland music scene. With their backing, Ryan’s craft of songwriting being harnessed and endorsed by some of the music industries biggest names (Gary Lightbody), Ryan’s future is certainly set to be a bright one.

“One of the most exciting artists to come out of Northern Ireland, voice of an angel” – Gary Lightbody




David Hosking    http://www.davidhosking.com/ 

David Hosking is a rare jewel in the crown of songwriting. With a voice that is endearing, honest, tender but full of life. His stage performance is warm, open, raw, gritty with an abundance of soul. The story telling speaks in a language that grabs a part of the human heart of which you can do nothing but cherish for life. David’s voice is reminiscent of Nick Cave meeting Nick Drake being smashed in the middle by early Tom Waits.

David, from Melbourne, Australia, has been writing, recording and touring for over 20 years with multiple successful tours opening for Eddie Reader, Foy Vance, The Waifs, Ron Sexsmith, Boo Hewerdine, Chris Wilson, Shane O’Mara, Rebecca Barnard, Shelly Scown, comedian Glynn Nicholas & Crowded House engineer Paul Kosky throughout Australia, UK and Europe.

CIT Arts Office and CIT Students Union are delighted to welcome David to the Rory Gallagher Theatre
