Bio

Hailing from Melbourne’s suburbia, Ry isn’t afraid of dreaming big. Although he’s softly spoken, he’s also quietly confident and unashamedly ambitious.

It’s this confidence that underpins Ry’s effortless swag, complex rhymes, and a sonic flow that lends itself to an intoxicating mix of iconic hip hop.

After discovering his idols Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G, Eminem, Wu-Tang Clan and OutKast, Ry started rapping in secret as a teenager in his bedroom, and he admits, “It was only about 5 or 6 years ago that I developed the confidence to learn how to construct songs and make music. Fortunately, Melbourne is filled with so many great bars, clubs and events for young hip hop artists, so I’ve really been able to use that to my advantage.”

When Triple J recently plucked him out as a featured Unearthed act, Ry admits that moment put him on the local map, gaining him radio exposure and giving him some great momentum resulting in being casted to the iTunes New Artist spotlight for August 2015 reaching #4 on the Australian iTunes Hip Hop /Rap Charts.

Ry’s web-series “Good Things Work Out” has recently been nominated for Best International Web Series: New York Web Fest 2015 (Finalist) and Outstanding Achievement in Music: New York Web Fest 2015 (Finalist).

The ‘Ivory Coast’ EP is available now at all Digital Music Retailers.

My favourite track off your EP so I'm real glad to see it make it's way to Unearthed. Production has that twisted Ship To Shore organ feel and your verses hit all the right areas.

Great horn loop, with Ry flowing effortlessly on it. This track brings that head nod factor, that is present in all good hip hop.
