Unlike many aspiring independent artists in the music industry today who want instant fame and recognition, rising music star Ryan Hagan chooses to create his personal brand the traditional way — from the ground up. Determined to popularize his brand of music through hard work, diligence, and a lot of creativity, he is bound to be the next big thing in the ever-competitive music industry with the release of his latest single, “Reset,” his second collaboration with Grammy nominee and multi-platinum producer Bryan Todd of 2220 Records.
“Reset” made its way to steady number 7 on the U.K. charts when it was released. Prior to its release Ryan already worked with Bryan on the phenomenal hit single, “You Deserve Better,” which was released earlier this year. “You Deserve Better” became very popular, landing on number seven on three radio charts in the United Kingdom, including Black Music, Commercial Pop, and Upfront Club.
Ryan has managed to make waves in the music industry worldwide by simply creating sensational songs that reflect his lyrical skills and voice quality. Aside from his successful collaboration with Bryan Todd, Ryan has also worked on two remix EPs featuring outstanding performances from Alphalove, Charlie Hedges, and Eddie Craig, Rare Candy, Kingdom 93, Marc beignet, and Element Z, and ROUTES.
As a highly talented independent artist, Ryan co-wrote and co-produced his two singles, “Come to You” and “Jimmy Fallon,” both generating over one million streams on various streaming platforms.
Interestingly, Ryan’s passion for singing surfaced when he was very young, singing in churches every chance he got. Unknown to many, Ryan is a self-taught pianist. Prior to pursuing his music career, he was doing exceptionally well in wrestling, winning five national championships before he acquired an injury that would change his life forever. While it ended Ryan’s promising career as an athlete, the injury paved the way for a new and exciting season as he sought refuge in songwriting and performing pop music. What was perceived by some as a damaging turn of events in Ryan’s life turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
As Ryan built his music career from scratch, he made 2020 one of his most productive years despite the global crisis. Undeniably, his astounding accomplishments have attracted the attention of big players in the industry, making him one of the most promising artists to watch out for. By strategically campaigning for his songs in radio stations based in the UK, he had intended all the while to ultimately attract the US-based market. True enough, his strategy worked.
Looking ahead, Ryan is hopeful about his future in the music industry. By maintaining his slow and steady rise to stardom, he is ensuring the establishment of a solid fanbase. In the coming years, he looks forward to breaking into the international music scene as he continues to create remarkable music.
Presently, Ryan Hagan is working on another promising collaboration with Bryan Todd, which is due for release in the first quarter of 2021. Just as he has made significant achievements with the previous songs he worked on with Todd, the upcoming single is expected to do as well as its predecessors, or even better.
