18 year-old Ryan is from Dublin. He starred in Ireland’s biggest soap opera ‘Fair City’ for 9 years playing the part of Mark Halpin. Securing a record deal with his band Mission 4 he decided to leave the soap and concentrate on his music. Despite his change in direction his band failed to have any hits so they split and Ryan applied for the Irish TV talent show ‘The Voice’. As he didn’t make the later stages of the competition he made the decision to take a trip to Blackpool and audition for Britain’s Got Talent singing ‘No Name’, a song he wrote about a girl he knew. Although Ryan finished 5th in the final Simon Cowell signed him and Ryan will be releasing a mini album in August.
