Ryan McMullan releases his ‘Ruthless Cupid EP’

The Ruthless Cupid EP is an all-out attack on the most famous matchmaker of all time, Cupid- the full EP release is due out on 10 April. Ryan explains, ‘These songs reflect a handful of times where it felt like Cupid has been toying with me. Amusing himself by throwing me into situations where I’m either out of my depth, hoping for reconciliation, or unable to escape the truth that even at the end, I’m still holding on to even the worst of my attempts at love.’

The current single is ‘In A Heartbeat’ ‘was written to sum up a stage I think we all kind of go through sooner or later: the understanding that something that once was, is now no more. But even at the end knowing it still has a hold on you, so much so, that no matter how toxic it is, or how little sense it made, you’d still run back to it in a desperate attempt to salvage it’ says Ryan. The video for ‘In A Heartbeat’ has been viewed over 115K+ times.

Over the last few years Ryan McMullan has been making a name for himself as a gifted songwriter and exceptional singer. 2019 was a huge year for the Portaferry native, with the success of his single ‘Rebellion’, and ‘Make A Mark’, his collaboration with Beoga. He has toured non-stop, playing his own sold-out shows in Dublin and Belfast and playing support slots with The Coronas on their Long Way Home tour in Ireland. He also opened for Snow Patrol in the USA, Europe and Asia and stood in as an honorary member of the band when guitarist Johnny McDaid was recovering after surgery. It’s no wonder that Ryan is now being recognised as one of Northern Ireland’s biggest and brightest talents.

Ryan’s Irish & UK tours planned for April & May will be rescheduled in late Autumn, his hometown shows in Portico Theatre will be held at the end of June.
