Portaferry native Ryan McMullan is set to release his second single ‘Rebellion’ from his forthcoming album (due for release in 2020) on 6th of September 2019. “‘Rebellion’ is about having to smile when it’s killing you. About doing the things we don’t want to and having to pretend and act like we do.” The song begins focusing on the lyrics and a simple guitar line, building to a powerfully percussive track with Ryan’s vocals gliding over the top as he sings the key line, ‘..how do you keep on pretending, when your heart’s in rebellion.’ With plaudits from the likes of Ed Sheeran, who called Ryan’s voice a ‘rare jewel,’ and Gary Lightbody, who likened his voice to that of an angel, it seems that Ryan McMullan is building real momentum on the road to a lasting career.
