Enigmatic and ever-changing, wandering folk-roots songwriter Zoe Ryan weaves tales of our human story through her work as effortlessly as she weaves her presence through her unfolding journey.
Marrying symbolism and poetry with unconventional arrangements and other-worldly vocals,
this is an artist you need to see live.
Recently, Ryan has travelled the country solo and has appeared at a number of metro and regional locations and festivals, including both Perth and Adelaide Fringe Festivals, as well as being active supporting environmental causes including the preservation of the Bellingen River Turtle at Bellingen Turtle Festival, and the protection of the Beeliar Wetlands in Western-Australia.
Already this artist has appeared on bills with lauded Australian musicians including Mark Seymour, and Katie Noonan, and has work-shopped music with others including Robert Forster and Clare Bowditch. Ryan has been selected as a finalist in both the Telstra Road to Discovery and South by Southbound competitions, as well as successfully crowdfunding a record, self-producing a successful Fringe season and achieving national and community airplay around Australia.
Years on from her early debut, a crowdfunded effort with her Melbourne-based band at the time (formerly known as Zoe Ryan and the Dandy Lion), Ryan is working on a new solo EP that is set to showcase the new voice and solo direction that audiences are getting a taste for, and asking to hear more of, in the live sphere. In the mean time, Ryan has released a 'Live' EP that came out of her Winter travels a year ago in 2017, and a limited number of copies of this EP have been reaching people around Australia through Bandcamp.
