Paula Ryan

Folk // Ardfinnan , Tipperary

Paula Ryan is singer/songwriter from Tipperary who uses a variety of instruments – some standard (Guitar) – some a bit more unusual ( Marimba, Bazouki, Bodhran) - to accompany original songs which are thoughtfully crafted to be powerful and insightful as well as entertaining and I always aim to develop a real rapport with the listeners, drawing them in, to enjoy and be stimulated by the music, the songs and the stories. Here are some further examples of what critics/reviewers have said about Paula's music:

"With the quality of the writing and performance on offer from Paula, there is nothing that can stop her (as the title track from her new album 'Let Me Fly' suggests) flying high artistically or her music flying off the virtual shelves. Paula is such a strong talent in writing and performing...and (her) live performances are well worth seeking out." - Irish Music Magazine

"Irish Singer/Songwriter Paula Ryan is a unique voice in the contemporary folk world..... Proving how insanely talented she is, not only did she write all the songs on her latest album 'Let Me Fly,' she also arranged the album as well as providing the vocals, guitars, tin whistles, saxophone and percussion amongst many other instruments. 'Let Me Fly' is... an enchanting album .....and a well honed crafted record which will bring joy to all who hear it." - Classic Rock Society Magazine

Paula Ryan’s album “Let Me Fly is an album of beauty and attraction, the Gaelic voice haunting the imagination and one that has truth within its soul.” – Liverpool Sound and Vision -

“….really powerful….what songwriting is about, making you think” – Fatea Magazine, UK
“Paula is a unique and powerful performer….her songs are sung from the heart…lovely sound and so meaningful” – Colum Sands, BBC Radio Ulster
