Ryan McMullan Stops By WNYU Before Joining Ed Sheeran on ‘Divide’ Tour

By Kevin Hannon, Staff Writer

Northern Irish singer-songwriter Ryan McMullan was recently announced as a support act for the UK and European dates of Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” tour, but before he hit the road with one of the biggest musicians on the planet, he stopped into Hannon on WNYU for a chat about his musical background, the Northern Irish music scene and how Sheeran personally invited him on tour. The Portaferry musician also played a few songs live in studio, including premiering a brand new song, “The Story of Jenny and Johnny.” McMullan, who recently released his “A Winter’s Coat” EP in January, has received widespread critical acclaim, including from Sheeran and Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody, who has praised him as having “a voice like an angel.”
