Irish Singer/Songwriter Ryan Sheridan releases ‘Home’, the theme song from ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys: D’Movie’
Universal Music Australia is proud to introduce platinum selling Irish Troubadour Ryan Sheridan and the release of his first single ‘Home’.
The ‘Home’ video generated over 200,000 views on YouTube in a matter of days. The clip is about what people miss about home. From Australia to Zurich, Ryan Sheridan called on his fans to help create the music video by sending clips of themselves writing down what they miss most about Ireland. If fans have ever wondered what Niall Horan, Robbie Keane and Saoirse Ronan miss about the Emerald Isle this is their chance to find out, with some of Ireland’s best known ex-pats, including sports stars, musicians and actors, deciding to get in on the action.
The song is also featured in the smash summer comedy ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys: D’Movie’, which recently appeared in cinemas Australia wide.
Brendan O’Carroll, creator and alter-ego of the formidable Agnes Brown, is a long-time admirer of Ryan Sheridan, and approached Ryan personally to commission this song for a key scene in the film. Ryan was delighted to get involved, and took a break from European touring to write and record the song for Brendan.
‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys’ is one of the great comedy sitcom successes of recent years, commanding huge audiences and winning television awards in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada.
Ryan Sheridan has enjoyed great success in Ireland and continental Europe, where sales of his debut album ‘The Day You Live Forever’ are in excess of 80,000 copies. He recently played with a 75 piece orchestra to 6000 fans at a special gig in Germany.
As a teenager, Ryan Sheridan made his tentative first steps onstage in the pubs and clubs of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. An intimidating environment where he was old enough to play but not to drink, the competitive nature of the scene and the city meant he had to get good quick or go home.
After spells in bands in both Ireland and Scotland, and a period running a bar in his hometown; a sense of unfinished business brought him to Dublin in 2009, where he hooked up with Polish percussionist Artur Graczyk. Embracing the freedom of movement created by acoustic guitar and cajon (or crate to our non Spanish readers) the pair hit the streets of Dublin to eak out a living.
Spotted by management while playing in Dublin’s Temple Bar, a showcase gig led to a record contract with leading Irish independent label Rubyworks. The album charted at # 2 in the Irish charts and Ryan has enjoyed a busy couple years playing at all the major Irish festivals, entertaining President Obama during his state visit, and became the only man to play both Dublin stadiums (Lansdowne Road and Croke Park) on the same day. Support slots with The Script, Taylor Swift and Bryan Adams have helped consolidate his status as an emerging Irish success story.
Through emigrated friends and music Ryan has developed an affinity with Australia, citing Aussie acts John Butler Trio and RY X as staples in his music diet.
On his plans to tour Australia Ryan says, “If there’s one thing that I love about what I do, its playing live. The energy is electric in a room when you connect with an audience so I’m looking forward to getting over to Australia, playing some gigs and giving all that I have.”
