Irish born and Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and artist Joey Ryan performs under the moniker ORIAN. In 2011 he started out on the Irish singer-songwriter scene, and after spending the past two years touring in Europe which saw supports with acts such as Bastille, George Ezra and Jet, Joey rebranded as ORIAN in order to reflect on changes he was hearing in his writing.
His debut single “Tryin'” is an emotionally-driven song produced by Irish producer Ciaran O’Shea of Whitewall Studios — the song deals with themes of perseverance, never giving up and breaking out of social expectations to strive for something more, even when the chips are down.
There’s a positive undertone throughout the song, the catchiness and its relatable content draws listeners in, and has the potential to uplift people’s mood when they’re in doubt. With a great debut single under his belt already, we’re excited to hear more music from ORIAN later this year.
