RY X Upcoming Debut Album – Dawn – Released 6th May // Announces Debut US Show & 14-Date European Tour
March 24, 2016
Los Angeles – (March 24, 2016) – “RY X was a seed that was planted, gently watered and nurtured. And it has grown, and blossomed. It has already grown beyond what I initially imagined.” Elaborates Australian artist RY X of his rise to notoriety following his standout debut EP, Berlin released late 2014.
Benchmarking his return is his new offering entitled Only – a seamless extension of its predecessor, which once again showcases RY’s boundless ability to create thought-provoking atmospheric pop music, engulfed with his distinctively ethereal vocal lines.
Only is the first song to be taken from RY’s eagerly anticipated debut album, Dawn released 6th May via esteemed labels, Infectious Music and Loma Vista. A conscientious and unfeigned debut, RY discloses how the 12-track LP came to fruition via a candid process of self-discovery and trust – “I have followed my heart and it has been a beautiful process of building trust with myself, as an artist, and person.”
To coincide with the release of Dawn and following a recent sold out 5-date European tour in early March, RY X has announced his return to Europe this May following an ephemeral stint at this years SXSW and debut shows in New York and LA, with a 14-date run.
Commencing in Paris, by way of Germany, Amsterdam, Brussels and Belgium before playing a one-off showcase at this year’s The Great Escape and culminating in what promises to be a landmark show at London’s Union Chapel, RY X will bring to life his debut LP in rarefied venues with what promises to be an emphatic statement of intent from this uniquely captivating artist.
