Bio

Ryan Edmond is a multi-instrumental singer-songwriter who hails from the small town of Rockingham, Western Australia. The years upon releasing his debut single in 2019, Edmond travelled the world. From coastal towns in Australia and deserted beaches in Indonesia, to pulsating city life in Europe. The years on the move have without a doubt influenced his music, which can be heard most recently in the single 'Stockholm', an ode to his second home in Sweden.

Although Edmond has only been singing and playing guitar over the past few years, music has always been a big part of his life. From jamming with friends to touring and playing cornet with critically acclaimed artists. The cornet is undoubtedly a characteristic trait for Edmond, an instrument he was taught by his grandad from a young age. Upon listening to Ryan Edmonds music, you can hear how the cornet has influenced his music. It runs like a river throughout the songs, sometimes concealed in the back, sometimes prominent. On these contemporaries, Edmond creates an honest and independent sound.

Edmond’s debut single ‘From The Start’ was met with critical acclaim from the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, Clash Magazine, Pilerats, Music Feeds, Forte Mag and AAA Backstage. His latest single ‘Stockholm’ also gained a lot of attention in Germany, with features in Yagaloo, The Mellow Music and Sound & Books. The song was played on rotation on German radio stations like Deutschlandfunk Kultur and Radio Rumantsch. ‘If She Knew’ is Edmonds final single before releasing his debut EP in September later this year.

There is something familiar about this track; it's like the feel of a hug. It's gental, tender and needed.
