Video Interview: Ryan O'Reilly

Hey guys!

The one thing I love the most about HITS is the super friendly people that help make this space of web so positive and welcoming.
I might work on the website on my own, but I collaborate with people all the time and so far each time has been a blast.

So I just want to take this little intro to thank everyone who's been involved in creating content for house in the sand, you guys are the loveliest.

And the artist you're about to see answering my question was no exception. Ryan O'Reilly and his band were absolutely lovely to work with.

Ryan O'Reilly and his band offer a big variety of sounds, still they march into the Folk and Americana direction. Their songwriting is mainly influenced by relationships with people as well as different places.
  Commuting between London (UK), Berlin (Germany) and Toronto (Canada) the band is obviously offered a wide range of city influences.

 Ryan O'Reilly and his band are:
Ryan O'Reilly
Tyler Kite
David Granshaw
Tom Juhas

Ryan started playing the guitar at the age of 10, when his father gave him a six-string saying “you’re never going to impress anyone with your looks or your charm so you’d better get good at this”. 
Eight years later Ryan still followed his father's advice and went to Toronto, Canada where he played countless open mics. His travels made him meet Tyler Kite and David Granshaw.

Them busking on London’s famous Portobello Road street market has opened many doors for the three musicians; people who enjoyed hearing their music invited them to their hometowns such as Oslo, Berlin, Lisbon, Napoli, Toronto and London - just to name a few.

Before his show in Ulm, we sat down to chat about Ryan's latest EP "Sometimes Things Just Happen", moving to Berlin, falling out of love with London, touring and a lot more!

I hope you enjoy!
