FRESH: ‘Ready To Love Again’ – Ryan Nealon

Ryan Nealon is “Ready To Love Again”

“Ready To Love Again,” which is the first song from Ryan Nealon’s debut EP coming later this year, is about moving on and looking up to a brighter future. He wrote this track with another LA Singer/Songwriter, Jake Scott (Aloe Blacc, Ben Rector, Ester Dean), and he wanted to write something that was very uplifting, happy, and positive since he had just come out of a depressing patch in his life.

This song pretty much helped Ryan pick up the pieces and give love another shot after getting his heart broken so many times. When he listens to this song now, he has a huge smile on his face, apparently, and wants to dance around his living room in his PJ’s! So he hopes you all feel the same! Ryan, 25, is a singer/songwriter from San Diego, CA and is based in Los Angeles, CA. Ryan has received a Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) for Ethnomusicology – Jazz Studies with an emphasis in Jazz Voice. As an unsigned artist, Nealon has over 300,000 streams and over 10,000 followers on social media.

Along with media content, Nealon has booked countless successful shows at renowned venues all across the United States such as Rockwood Music Hall in New York City and The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. Ryan has also collaborated with several artists of notoriety such as Alisan Porter, Brooke Simpson, and India Carney from NBC’s The Voice, Noah Barlass and Matt Bloyd from “The Four,” and has sung background vocals for artists such as Matoma. His most recent credits are singing Background Vocals on the Matoma tracks “Sunday Morning” (feat. Josie Dunne), which was released in 2018 under Parlophone Records. Nealon’s independent release “City” recently passed over 120,000 streams and gained a mass amount of positive critical reception and press including a feature on Apple Music’s Breaking Pop playlist.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
