Ryland Rose – Aka Ry, from Melbourne. Started in 2012. Toured as support for Spit Syndicate.      

  • Rap/Hip-Hop artist Ryland Rose hit international success last year, after his 2016 single, “Almost Famous & Broke” entered the Billboard Viral Charts at #4 and peaked on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts at #5. Now the full album by the same name is available everywhere and it’s already peaked on the iTunes Hip Hop album charts at #4.Ryland explains, “Half of the album was written before the single “Almost Famous & Broke” was released. The other half was done after everything had happened with the success I had on Spotify and charting on Billboard. At first, it was just a cool name for a song, then I was flying to Sydney to meet with labels and could barely afford a coffee – that’s when the term “Almost Famous & Broke” kind of became my mantra for this album. I found my angle and just channeled in on it for the second half of the record.”The second single to follow up Rose’s success was “Brooke Shields” the track was accompanied by an eerie music video. Premiered by TheMusic, the clip follows three “hypnotic in-sync young women” have an incredibly uneasy obsession with Rose.

    The music video is perfectly in tune with the overall dark vibe you get from listening to the album, “There’s still upbeat parts, but I’ve always loved albums you can drive around and zone out too, that have a cinematic story to them – I guess I just subconsciously made it like that without realising.”

  • After a successful run of independently released singles throughout 2018, plus featuring on the new Milwaukee Banks album – Ryland Rose shows no signs of stopping with the release of his new single – ‘Blindfold’.Produced by long time partner-in-crime JakeOnKeys – Blindfold is a return to his anthemic upbeat tracks such as ‘Gimme That’ and ‘Brooke Shields’, which saw his rise to independent success as a Triple Unearthed Featured Artist, Channel [V] Discover Winner, and also countless Spotify playlistings not just in Australia, but also the USA and Asia.

    Collectively, he now has over 1 Million streams on Spotify.

    A long time believer in DIY, Rose crafted most of the track driving around at night. “I work pretty late hours in my dayjob and heard this funk track on the radio. I immediately sent it to Jake and he crafted something up from that point. I literally sent him all my voice memos and ideas when I was in the car driving. Probably not the safest thing to do, but it seemed to figure itself out”.

    Blindfold is the debut single from Ryland Rose’s upcoming album ‘DORK’ – due late August 2018 via Inertia Access. He is also signed to Inertia’s boutique booking agency, Collective Artists.
