We chat with Ryan Edmond about his newest single 'From The Start'

When did you first start making music and what led you there? My grandfather introduced me to music from a young age. I began playing the cornet from around the age of six and had lessons from grandad just about every day. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to play guitar more and began to write my own songs.

Tell us about your new single ‘From the Start’. What is the story behind it? What inspired it? I guess it’s about being close to so many friends when you are younger, and as you get older, people focus on their careers and no longer have the time to share with their friends and family. 

What compelled you to make the jump into a solo career? It wasn’t until I moved to Sweden that I began giving songwriting a crack. I finished my first song called ‘My Terms’ and thought it would be fun to take it to a producer and record it. Then I met Jerry Sillah, a Swedish producer, and we began writing some songs together.

Although you’re based in Sweden, you’ve been back home in Australia recording your debut EP. How’s it coming along? It has been great fun playing and recording with the full band. We are actually planning to finish a whole album – eight or nine songs. I will be back in the studio next week, aiming to release the full album around May.

What can we expect from your upcoming single launch at The Workers Club? I am super excited to have one of my favourite musicians Eva McGowan opening the night, before the amazing Simon Phillips blows peoples’ minds with his incredible songwriting and performing with many different instruments. We will be playing all songs from the upcoming album and have many special guests hopping up with us throughout the night.
