Ryan, from Gawthorpe, said the album, In Another World, was made up of songs inspired by things that were happening in his life.
He said: “I wrote this album in about eight months. It was recorded live in Milwaukee and Chicago in three days, straight after my first US tour through North East to South America.
“The songs are about personal experiences I had within one year and are an honest account of events – a lot happened in one year!
“I must say I feel most proud of this album and I respect and appreciate that my label, Candyrat Records, wanted it left untouched – it is one man and one guitar.
“The first live recording has clocked around 17,000 Youtube views in its first week.
”People are so supportive and it’s truly great to have the local folks behind you, so thank you all!”
The album is available from Amazon and www.candyrat.com.
