Ryan Langlois is a barstool balladeer who can turn ordinary moments into lessons in wisdom and grace. Every time he takes the stage, he gives all he has to offer, and something special happens. You can see the energy crackle through his veins like electricity.
With achingly honest lyrics, rich melodies, and a ruggedly soulful voice, Ryan is just now truly starting to find himself. As an artist, a husband, and a father.
It’s taken 15-plus years for Langlois to get to this point as an artist (he didn’t pick up a guitar until he was 22 years old). Along the way, he’s experienced highs and lows — including Canadian Idol auditions, national success as the frontman and co-songwriter of the award winning independent country band The Boom Chucka Boys, the break up that followed, and bouts of severe anxiety and depression.
He appears determined to embrace where he is now and who he is, unapologetically.
“I want to make music for people who’ve been through shit and are still standing.” – RL
Most recently Ryan finished 2nd in the Project Wild Country Artist Development Program, receiving a $75,000 grant. He continues to write, perform, and pursue his dream of writing and performing music that means something. New single coming out April, and new album May 31st!
