During the COVID-19 pandemic, some honed their baking skills, streamed entire television series, and made friends with their couches. Then there’s 15-year-old Ryan Brown, a talented singer/songwriter who composed and recorded an impressive array of her first original works. Her debut single, “Plan B”, launched on Saturday, October 2.
In Plan B, there’s a range and richness to Brown’s voice that showcases her emotional depth and vulnerability. Her songwriting focuses on topics that will be relatable to her audience—like heartache, bullying, depression, and surviving/navigating through the global pandemic.
A native of New Jersey, Brown’s musical journey began with her love of singing and advanced as she learned to play piano and guitar. In the fifth grade, she was invited to join her music school’s rock band program. Through that program, Brown collaborated with other young musicians and performed throughout New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area.
Brown used those early experiences to springboard into her solo project, quickly excelling in her guitar and piano musicianship. Songwriting and composing were her next steps, and she quickly began to amass an impressive repertoire of original work. Inspiration for her music and lyrics are derived from personal, authentic moments…
“From crying in a school bathroom stall… to sitting in a Starbucks drinking a strawberry-acai-lemonade.”
Brown says. Above all else, Brown is inspired to share her stories in the hopes that her teenage listeners can feel that they are heard and understood. “I hope that when you listen to my music,” says Brown, “you find comfort in knowing that you’re not alone.”
Plan B, produced by Stephen Rezza (Def7/BMG), is available on all platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, Apple music, Tidal music, Napster, Pandora, YouTube music, and Deezer.
