A singer, songwriter and producer who’s penned records for such musical luminaries as Earth, Wind and Fire, Ryan McDermott recently added his name to the G.O.O.D. Music roster. On new single Paradise, his first release via his new label home, McDermott gives us a foretaste of the creativity and versatility that caught Kanye‘s
eye ear. Backed by his boardwork, a catchy yet ominous mix of ‘80-inspired synths and plodding percussion, the artist exhibits a unique, reedy vocal presence and a cryptic lyrical sensibility. Darren Romanelli directs the official video, depicting McDermott parting ways with a significant other under mysterious circumstances. Intrigued? Then keep it locked for the latest news and tunes leading up to the currently-unscheduled release of debut mixtape Ryan vs The Sandman: The Tale of the Sleepwalkers.
