Neither the Belfast-born singer nor the West Yorkshire-based band he fronts have had much time for glancing backwards. Skinny Living sold out venues across the country, landed a plum support slot with Jake Bugg at Leeds Arena (after a search for local talent) played festivals from The Secret Garden Party to the legendary Isle Of Wight and now landed a contract with RCA Victor, the label synonymous with David Bowie. New single ‘Why’ – which lead singer Ryan describes as “a really heartfelt ballad about a time in my personal life” has been given a more contemporary sheen by in demand producer/electronic artist LostBoy, who was able to recapture the “special feeling” of the band’s initial demo but make the song sound huge and modern.
