About Ryland James
On the edge of the stage, under the spotlight, and behind a microphone, singer and songwriter Ryland James thrives. In this space, the artist’s voice rings out with a bold balance of passion, panache, and power, coursing through a fusion of gospel roots, gritty soul, and anthemic pop straight from the heart. That voice already carried him a long way from his birthplace of Deseronto, Ontario and recently brought him to a career milestone: joining a personal hero—Alessia Cara—on tour throughout Canada and the U.S.
Returning from the road, he kicked off his biggest and boldest chapter with the 2019 single “In My Head” which has impressively been certified Gold in Canada. Co-written amidst trips to Stockholm and London (which yielded nearly 100 original compositions), the track highlights Ryland’s poetic song-craft and expansive vocal range. The vocals reverberate with a combination of urgent immediacy and palpable emotion. Ultimately, Ryland makes a connection every time he picks up a microphone in the studio or on stage.
