The Canadian native, Ryland James Clark, better knows as Ryland James, is a singer/songwriter that will soon move the world with his killer vocals and talented musical abilities. Ryland will soon follow in the footsteps of his musical ancestors, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, and Shawn Mendes, as they take on the world with just their guitar and raw vocals.
Ryland James comes from a small town in Ontario, Canada, and started posting covers of himself singing on YouTube at the age of 12. Since then, he has gained a number of over 22,000 followers on his Instagram and over 33,000 subscribers to his Youtube Channel. He covers all songs starting from Adele’s “All I Ask” to Demi Lovato’s “Stone Cold,” while also including Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” and other popular artists like Tori Kelly, Usher, and James Arthur. He now started writing original songs like: “My Love is Not a Game,” “I Wanna See You Again Tonight,” and “Forever Mine.”
Just like his inspiration, Shawn Mendes, Ryland also decided to post covers of himself on Vine, YouTube, and Instagram in order to gain buzz from the music industry and other artists. Soon after, Shawn Mendes tweeted him out saying: “@RylandClark1 dude! Checked out some of your covers! Keep it up man! Sounds great :)”
