Fri 18 November 2016, 20:30 – 23:30 GMT
Ryan Sheridan, a multi instrumentalist, came from the busking streets to a centre stage headline act in less than a year. A gifted and inventive guitarist, he has combined his six-string skills with percussive attack to create a unique sound that has thrilled packed houses worldwide. A born entertainer, this passionate singer with a gift for storytelling is a commanding stage presence; and his acoustic-driven, anthemic songs, connects with audiences wherever he is seen and heard.
Ryan Sheridan's debut album – 'The Day You Live Forever' – was released in 2011. Fuelled by the massive hits 'Jigsaw' and 'The Dreamer', the album went on to achieve platinum status in Ireland. Packed arena shows followed with Bryan Adams, The Script and Taylor Swift, and Ryan's international reputation started to spread.
2012 saw deals done with Universal Music in Europe and Australia, and 'The Day You Live Forever' climbed to the top of the German charts. Extensive touring followed, and much of 2013 was spent thrilling European audiences with his high-octane live shows.
With a teenage apprenticeship on Broadway NYC, it is no surprise that live performance underpins the ability of Ryan Sheridan. High-energy explosions such as 'Stand Up Tall' are now balanced with haunting ballads like '2 Back To 1' and ‘Home’.
In 2015, Ryan Sheridan’s second album ‘Here And Now’ went straight to No.1 in the Irish charts.
