“Five Minutes With” Country artist, Danielle Ryan

Danielle Ryan is set to drop her debut EP, Middle of the Madness (604 Records) April 2022, on the heels of her new single “Take Me Back”, (serviced by Universal Music) to Canadian Country Radio – February 2022.

Danielle Ryan has already amassed more than her share of industry interest, recently landing a semi-finalist spot in the 2022 Sirius XM “Top of the Country” contest in partnership with CCMA Official, earning a Top-6 spot in the 2016 Canadian Country Music Association Discovery Program and winning Country Music Television’s Chevy from the Tailgate Contest. Ryan’s debut single “Weather Man” (serviced by Universal Music) gained traction at Country Radio and saw great recognition across DSP’s, landing her a Spotify Billboard in Toronto’s Eaton Centre in August 2021.

Now, Danielle Ryan is eager to bring her polish and poise back to the stage to support her first formal release. “I just love to perform,” she enthuses. “That’s why I started down this path in the first place, and I’m excited to finally start doing what I’ve been working towards for so long.”
