Ryan Keen Announces Debut Album 'Room For Light' Released On September 23rd 2013

Following another successful round of touring the UK, fantastically gifted guitarist and singer songwriter Ryan Keen this week announced details his forthcoming debut album 'Room For Light', which will be released in the UK on September 23rd. The wonderfully crafted single 'Old Scars' will be the first track taken from his debut album and will be released onSeptember 9th.

'Room For Light', Ryan's first full length release, showcases how this young singer songwriter's breadth of musical talent, coupled with a beautiful song-writing style and incredibly engaging live performances, have taken him from playing the tiny room acoustic circuits of the UK, to headlining to over 1000 people. 'Room For Light' also includes collaborations with some extremely talented and likeminded artists in the likes of Ninja Tune's Fink and Newton Falkner.

Having previously been part of 2012's 'Back To The Ocean' EP - albeit in a more stripped down guise, lead single 'Old Scars' has become a firm live favourite over the past 6 months and has seen a rebirth during the album recording sessions. Having recently completed recording his album with producer Dan Parry who has previously worked with artists such as Miles Kane, Adele & Lady Gaga, Ryan was so pleased with the new version of 'Old Scars' he immediately knew it had to be the debut single from the album.

Ryan Keen is an artist doing it the old fashioned way. Constantly on the road, he has played over 200 shows this past 12 months. Touring which has seen him sharing the stage with fellow singer songwriters such as Ben Howard, Lucy Rose and good friend Ed Sheeran who invited Ryan to join him on his enormous UK tour last summer. He was also the only unsigned act to play last year's iTunes Festival. In fact, Ryan has also decided to collaborate with Quiksilver clothing for the release of this record. A keen surfer himself, Ryan was at the Pro France, World Surf Championships a few years back and was introduced to the Quiksilver Music team by his long time friends Ben Howard and Charlotte O'Connor. Quiksilver immediately offered Ryan brand endorsement and things have progressed to the point where Quiksilver will be actively supporting this debut release with their creative services team, recording time at their SW France state of the art studio and numerous International live opportunities.

Having already caught the attention of the UK media with The Sun, Mirror and BBC Radio 1 all supporting Ryan and tipping him for big things from his previous releases, 'Room For Light' should take Ryan Keen to even greater heights. The original version of 'Old Scars' featured Ed Sheeran on backing vocals and guitar, but due to his label intervening he was forced to pull out of the collaboration. However, the new version of 'Old Scars' has recently been chosen as the music to a national TV Ad campaign and has already garnered hundred of new fans across Ryan's ever growing social networks.
