Daniel O'Donnell: "Derek Ryan Is Ireland's Answer To Michael Buble"

Daniel O'Donnell: "Derek Ryan Is Ireland's Answer To Michael Buble"
CAMBRIDGE, UK (Top40 Charts/ Quite Great PR) The Irish country legend Daniel O'Donnell has claimed that Derek Ryan is set for stardom in the UK having already gained massive success in Ireland. O'Donnell said that Ryan's "confidence, boyish charm, charisma and stage presence" make him "very appealing to all age groups in the same way that Michael Buble has been".

He went on to say that "Derek can do for Irish country what Michael Buble has done for traditional swing music - bring it back into the realms of pop!" O'Donnell said of Derek Ryan as a performer that he has "a great, smooth country voice, brilliant versatility and an excellent live show where he really interacts with the fans on a personal level - I think that's really important for a real musician and performer. It is this close relationship with his fans which also makes him similar to Buble - they both respect and love their following very much I think."

O'Donnell also knows Derek Ryan's music intimately having recorded music with and got to know him well on a personal level. "As a songwriter", O'Donnell said, "he has a great range and sense of adventure when it comes to choosing topics to write about and then how to figure out the accompanying melodies and chords." Daniel's current album 'A Picture of You' features two of Derek's self-penned songs; 'God's Plan' and 'Perfect Days'
Derek Ryan's career has already been littered with successes. He signed to Warner Music at the age of 17 with his band D-Side and went on to make a multi-platinum selling record with 'Real World'. He has also been nominated for several Meteor Awards in Ireland but has had global success with a number 1 single in Japan.

He has already gained 3 top 10 hits in the UK, and is now looking to further establish himself with the release of his new single '100 Numbers' ahead of the UK release of his new album Country Soul.
