Day 4: Ryan O'Reilly | #HITSBC16

Hey guys!

Day 4, we're at a good pace!
The birthday party is being well received and well attended which is so nice for me to see.

We started working on this in October 2015 so it's been quite the long process and to see everything finally come together on the internet.

What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.

Who is performing today?
Ryan O'Reilly.
He is a singer/songwriter from Winchester, UK who is now based in Berlin, Germany. Ryan's music comibines Folk, Americana and Rock elements.
Together with his fantastic band, you'll find him touring all the time.

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. 

The story continued and so Ryan released multiple EPs, toured with acts such as Lissie and he kept on building himself a supportive fanbase.

What is special about this video?
It's a dressing room session, if you want to call it like that. We filmed this video before Ryan's show in Ulm and it was the first time we got to meet in person after working together online for a while.
Ryan's performance was, just like expected, spot on.
I'm sure a lot of you are going to enjoy this!

Ladies and Gents, please give it up for Ryan O'Reilly performing his song "I Want To Call You When I'm Drunk".
