"Ryan Lauder scene from a scene"

It's simplest to say that Ryan Lauder sounds a bit like Damien Rice. But it isn't completely accurate. Even in a love ballad, Rice's every word sounds powerfully mournful, like you should only be listening by candlelight as you process the death of someone close to you. Lauder, captures the same stark beauty of Rice's songwriting, but instead of crushing, it feels sincere, hopeful, even moving. And that makes all the difference. - Josh Gross. Boise Weekly, USA


Currently recording his debut with producer Andy Strange, in London, England.



Born upon the windswept shores of South West Scotland to Swedish Parents Ryan Lauder discovered music at an early age. By the age of 5 his family moved to the remote island of Faro in the Baltic Sea. It was here that he was classically trained on the recorder and picked up his first guitar. In 2008 he moved back to the UK and so far has opened up for acts such as First Aid Kit, I am Kloot, Johhny Flynn, and has just completed an American tour with folk troubadour Langhorne Slim. It was rumoured that one fan in america said to him "wow, that was actually not bad at all." With not even one official release, a buzz has already started about Ryan Lauder with many people in Bars saying he is the next Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and Bette Midler. Ryan's band consists of pedal steel, cello, upright bass, and drums and his set ranges from soft folk numbers to high energy americana.
