A ferociously serious student of his craft ... his dedication is unwavering; whether for a small house concert or a large festival crowd, his commitment to and preparation of quality entertainment remains paramount.
Morning Radio Host, CFCW Edmonton
Ryan Langlois is a barstool balladeer who can turn ordinary moments into lessons in wisdom and grace. Every time he takes the stage he gives all he has to offer, and something special happens. You can see the energy crackle through his veins like electricity. Whether he’s performing with the FULL Band on big festival stages or telling stories and singing his songs in an intimate setting; with just a voice, a guitar, and a song; Ryan gives all he has every single time.
Born and raised in Saskatchewan before heading west to Alberta during the oil boom, Ryan has been carving out his own unique sound for 17 plus years and counting. Years that have included open mics, church singing, Canadian Idol, basement bands, touring Canada with his first project (Canadian Country Music Award nominated - Group Of The Year, and Alberta Country Music Award winning) The Boom Chucka Boys, and now a flourishing beginning to his solo career. (In 2018 Ryan was a finalist in the Project Wild Country Artist Development Program and received a significant development grant, and was nominated for Male Artist Of The Year at the Alberta Country Music Awards)
Inspired heavily by four specific artists; Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, John Prine and Corb Lund, he appears to just now be finding his true voice and sound, both as a writer and performer. That sound shines on his most recent album, It Was A Song, released on May 31, 2019. A soaring and stirring collection of songs specifically chosen to take you on a journey. IT WAS A SONG is currently nominated for Alberta Country Music’s Album Of The Year and Ryan is up for Male Artist and Songwriter Of The Year.
Ryan has released three singles off IT WAS A SONG to commercial radio with critical success and has been performing on big stages, in barrooms and living rooms in support of It Was A Song ever since it’s release.
2020 is already looking to be an exciting year with dates being added on new stages and in new cities across western Canada. He will also be heading south to Nashville for a time. Studying the art of songwriting and collaborating with some of the best in the business.
“I have discovered a joy in storytelling that has lit a fire in my creative spirit. I’m looking forward to seeing what the fire reveals.” RL
