Ryland James Premieres Video for “In My Head”

Ryland James

Fresh off the heels of announcing he will support Alessia Cara on The Pains Of Growing Tour this Fall in the U.S., rising Ontario-born singer and songwriter Ryland James has released his new video for “In My Head”. Watch the video below.

The video premiered yesterday via Billboardwho noted “The song is incredibly soulful, as James, 20, shows off Adele-like qualities with a soaring chorus and emotional, heartbreak-ridden lyrics.”

The budding talent highlighted 2019 by crisscrossing Canada in arenas on tour with Alessia Cara, as well as supporting Daniel Caesar. In addition, he received social media praise from Shawn Mendes. This summer, he brought audiences to their feet at intimate showcases in New York and Los Angeles, setting the stage for what’s to come with his dynamic performances. Kicking off the fall with a bang, he hits the stage at Bumbershoot on September 1 and Life Is Beautiful September 22, before joining Alessia Cara on tour in the U.S. this Fall.

All signs point to a major breakthrough by Ryland James in 2019.

On the edge of the stage, under the spotlight, and behind a microphone, singer and songwriter Ryland James thrives. In this space, the artist’s voice rings out with a bold balance of passion, panache, and power, coursing through a fusion of gospel roots, gritty soul, and anthemic pop straight from the heart. That voice already carried him a long way from his birthplace of Deseronto, Ontario and recently brought him to a career milestone: joining a personal hero—Alessia Cara—on a spring tour throughout Canada.

Returning from the road, he kicked off his biggest and boldest chapter with the 2019 single “In My Head. Co-written amidst trips to Stockholm and London (which yielded nearly 100 original compositions), the track highlights Ryland’s poetic songcraft and expansive vocal range. The vocals reverberate with a combination of urgent immediacy and palpable emotion. Ultimately, Ryland makes a connection every time he picks up a microphone in the studio or on stage.
