Ryan was born in 1992 into a musical family. When he was 8 years old an opportunity arose for Ryan to play the character Mark Halpin in RTÉ’s long-running soap opera Fair City. It was a role he played for almost a decade. But by the age of 17, music had become his main priority. He left Fair City to pursue a career in music.
We also understand his uncle was also a Eurovision song contestant. It runs in the family it seems
