Ryan McMahon has carved out an almost 20-year career as an independent artist in Canada’s vibrant music scene. He’s always been a genre fence sitter, hanging out on the edges of country just enough to say he isn’t; Ryan is both a whisper and a scream.
“Ryan sings to anyone and everyone who has ever got drunk, smoked, cried, loved or been loved,” says producer Andre Wahl (Hawksley Workman, Luke Doucet).

This January of 2019, Ryan will release “In Line For a Smile,” which was co-produced with Zak Cohen at Woodshop Recording Studios in Duncan, BC. “I’ve worked hard to create a record that really spotlights all aspects of my personality, and I think that when I look back on a lifetime in music, this album will really stand out as a high water mark for me. I’m extremely proud of it, and I can’t wait for it to reach not only my small fan base, but new ears as well.” says Ryan. The first single “Too Tired for Love” was released in December, 2018.

Legendary Canadian TV/Radio personality Terry David Mulligan may have summed up Ryan best: “The complete package. Singer. Songwriter. Performer. Troublemaker. Passionate human being. For me… priceless.”
