ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The village that they call The Moy in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, may be where Ryan Kelly resides, but he's just as comfortable calling the studio and stage home. He began his love affair with music and performing early on in his life, and he's remained faithful to his first love ever since. Ryan developed his wide range of musical tastes from a lifetime filled with varied influences- from traditional Irish songs, to acoustic to rock to showtunes- and he's combined them all into his own distinctive style, showcased here on his first album release, "In Time".
Ryan started singing publically at age seven, taught himself to play the guitar around age thirteen and began writing his own music not long after. He joined a well known local band, and won a place as a finalist in the National BBC Television "Country Cool" competition-where he placed second in the finals. Ryan's performed live with West Life, Girls Aloud and Simply Red in the "Children In Need" televised charity concert at the Odyssey in Belfast, sung the US National Anthem for his beloved Boston Celtics, and has performed for the US President and his family at the White House.
Ryan's talents don't end with his phenomenal musical abilities. He is also an accomplished actor. He's taken on roles such as that of Mickey Johnstone in the musical "Blood Brothers" and Judas Iscariot in "Jesus Christ Superstar" to much success and praise. This brought Ryan to a new chapter in his musical journey- recording and touring as one of the stars of the highly successful, platinum and multi-gold selling musical show, "Celtic Thunder". Performing with "Celtic Thunder" has allowed Ryan to showcase both his acting and singing abilities to audiences all across North America and beyond. His ability to transform onstage and make the songs he performs completely his own, have garnered him a large and loyal following. The audience's enthusiasm for his performances fuel his own onstage and make for a night no one soon forgets, and he enjoys every moment of it- "It's clichéd, but music is my life. It's what makes me happy and I feel blessed to be able to call this my job."
Now a seasoned performer, and no stranger to the studio, Ryan felt the time was right to share his own music with the world. Releasing his debut album is just the newest highlight for Ryan in a career that hasn't seen its top heights yet, and he looks forward to continued support from his ever-growing fanbase as he continues on this amazing journey for many years to come.
~"I honestly hope you take as much enjoyment from listening to these tracks as I have in bringing them to you. I've put down my hopes, fears, and anxieties in eleven tracks that have come a long way from those groups of words and chords on an old battered file block lying in my bedroom....the ride has been a lot of fun, and I hope you'll travel along the way with me as you listen to them."

Not Far Apart
Very lovely song especially remembering, during the holidays, those we hold dear who are with us in spirit. Ryan is not only a great and talented artist but appears to be a wonderful person with a good heart. It takes great courage to step out of one's comfort zone to pursue a dream. Fortunately, Ryan took that step and shares his wonderful voice and music with us. I wish him much happiness and much success with his career. You will not be disappointed with the purchase of this song or his current CD, "In Time".

"Not Far Apart" By Ryan Kelly

Profoundly Hopeful
“Not Far Apart” is profoundly hopeful and truly comforting for those who have experienced deep loss. I’ve found it to be the most tranquil way to “remember” and then pass beyond grief, back to joy. This song is a gift and especially wonderful at Christmas! Thanks Ryan for the honesty and tenderness of this song.

So beautiful. Having had my husband, two sisters, and two brother in laws leave us to be with Jesus in the past few years this song really ministers to those having suffered the loss. I play it anytime of the year I need that ministry. Thanks you so much Ryan.

Not Far Apart: An Awesome song for Christmas!!!!
I love this song very much. The reason is My brother Bill died in 1992. He was only 32 years old. I miss him very much and "Not Far Apart" helps me to deal that I'm not far apart from the memories of my brother and his love for me. I would like to thank Ryan Kelly for singing this song!!! THANKS RYAN!!!!!

Wonderful, emotional song
I first heard this a few years ago, when Ryan posted it online. Listening to this song for the first time, I have to admit that it brought me to tears. I was thinking of my parents and of a friend who had died recently. Then I listened again, and started to really hear the words. I play it often now, during the holidays, and remember my loved ones. Ryan took those beautiful words and set them to equally beautiful music. It makes me feel good, thinking of those who are gone being in heaven and looking down on us. This is just one touching song from this talented young man. His album In Time is filled with many more touching songs. Give him a listen!

Not Far Apart
This song has helped me a great deal. I experienced my first loss at the age of 18 when my Great-Grandmother passed away in 1994. I also had to deal with loss of my Grandmother after a long battle with Alzheimer's. This song is one that I enjoy hearing. It has even helped me deal the loss of my beloved dog of 15 years. They will always be in my hear and memories and this song helps me to deal with the loss. Thanks so much Ryan
