IRISH singer/songwriter Ryan O’Shaughnessy has spoken about his debut album, which has just been released.

The 19 year old, who made it to the final of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ earlier this year, said about the sound of the new album: “It’s raw, acoustic. I actually asked the producer not to fix any imperfections, so that it’s more natural with a live feel.”

“Lyrically all the songs are quite personal, which really exposes me as a person and not just as a singer and a writer”.

The Malahide native said his favourite song on the album is ‘Sofa Bed’. “It’s probably my favourite song I’ve written, it’s more up-tempo and really enjoyable to play live”, he said of the song.

O’Shaughnessy shot to fame after his audition for Britain’s Got Talent, in which he performed song ‘no name’

He was a contestant on RTE’s ‘The Voice of Ireland’ however was eliminated in the first week of the live shows.
