Ryan Green – the UK’s freshest talent


Ryan Green bio: Ryan Green is a lavishly talented 19-year-old singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Essex, who first came to prominence on BBC1’s ‘The Voice UK’. First time round the judges didn’t turn for him, but immediately regretted their decision and in series 4 he grabbed his chance with several stunning performances and made it through to the knockout rounds with Team Rita Ora and Team will.i.am.

But ‘The Voice’ isn’t where it begins and ends for this soulful R&B balladeer. Ryan, described by many as the young Justin Timberlake, has been gigging live from a young age, performing a mix of original material and covers, and has performed to warm reviews at such iconic venues as London’s The Jazz Cafe, BBC Broadcasting House and the Cafe de Paris, as well Liverpool’s Cavern Club.

And to further underline his pedigree, like other fine musical artists — including Adele and Amy Winehouse — Ryan has completed 2 years at the prestigious Brit School, where he honed his song-writing and producing skills.



Forthcoming gigs:
Busk in London, London rail stations
Justin Bieber, O2 Priority Lounge
Winter Wonderland, Derby
The Bedford

Cutting a track with Sammy Sam, Enemy Radio
Debut single launches December 2016
