I’ve known Sara since childhood.Its been a joy to witness her young career, to hear her songwriting develop and her singing mature.
This young lady has a huge career ahead of her.” — Christy Moore. Jan 2018.
“I really, really love the latest single from Kildare solo act Sara Ryan, 'Euphoric Recall', the perfect come-down from a chaotic day. Wilting blues guitar simmers around a dark soulful vocal. It's so refreshing to hear an Irish act delve into these sounds, and based on this one track I would love to see Ryan live with full band. Sneaker Pimps' Kelli Ali comes to mind, from their 1996 masterpiece Becoming X. “ — REMY (bestofirishmusicandfilmblogspot.com)
“Over the past few years, she has been making major inroads in the Irish Music Scene”. — Hot Press. (Mike McGrath- Bryan)
