David Ryan: Breaking Into the Songwriting Scene with "Mississippi Rose"
There are those who sit around and hope for good things to happen, and there are those who ambitiously work for their dreams. New Hampshire native David Ryan falls under the latter category. He began his music career as a drummer, and is now laying his heart out and rebranding himself as a singer/songwriter here in Nashville. After attending Boston University for audio production and touring with various bands, David decided that Nashville was the next step for his music career.
When he's not on the road or recording, David is working on the next song and planning out all of the details to get it out to the world. Nashville Offbeat is happy to have met with this busy human to talk about his song "Mississippi Rose" off of his self titled debut album released last October.
"Tupelo, Mississippi was a break up point. We had a stop there and she and I had a blow-up argument... and that was the (end) of the relationship - And so Mississippi Rose is how it came to be. It was something beautiful, but it didn't last."
"Mississippi Rose" has received airplay here in Nashville on WXNA as well as on 1960 in Atlanta. It's a simplistic love ballad with an indie vibe and a story that most can relate to. If you're looking for an easy-going song to listen to on the road - or as you're processing the end of a relationship - this is for you.
David Ryan has an upcoming new rocking single titled "Give Me Your Love" coming out this October, so be on the look out! He will be touring through Nashville, Louisville, Atlanta, and Huntsville to promote his new release. You pretty much have no excuse to miss seeing him during his travels, because he'll be all over the place! To keep up to date, follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
