Rising Singer-Songwriter Ryan Brown Takes Us on an Emotional Ride with New Single "Carousel"

June 30th, 2023 (Nashville, TN): Rising singer-songwriter Ryan Brown releases new single "Carousel." The single is now available on all digital streaming platforms.

At the young age of 17 years old, rising pop-star Ryan Brown has proven to be an old soul as she writes authentically about the highs and lows of teenage life. “Carousel” is an upbeat tune all about Ryan’s unique perspective on relationships. To Ryan, a good relationship is one that can endure ups and downs. The single artistically illustrates the whirlwind of emotions and excitement that comes with entering a new relationship, followed by the rude reminder that eventually every ride has its end. The catchy chorus offers poignant metaphors about the inevitability and duality of life, including, 'Leaves will fall and candles will burn/ I knew we wouldn’t make it but that doesn’t make it easier.' Ryan compares relationships to a carousel, with unavoidable rises and falls, and addresses her naivety in her past relationships, singing, 'I hoped that we could beat the cycle/ I hoped we’d never change.' But, Ryan still has hope as she claims, 'Someday I’ll find someone and we’ll ride this carousel.' Ryan pulls her inspiration from experiences in her life, and this song is no exception. Her graphic lyrics allow the audience to picture the scene while the instrumentation and strong vocals allow the raw emotion to come through. Reminiscent of Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album 'Sour,' Ryan does not sugar coat her life, but tells real stories and the wisdom she has learned along the way. While the song has meaningful lyrics, 'Carousel' is upbeat with beautiful production and a classic pop sound, making the single a perfect combination of catchy and eloquent.

Ryan Brown is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter with an already illustrious career. Ryan has performed at countless events, including The Sound Mind Network Music Festival featuring superstars Kevin Bacon and Michael Bacon of the Bacon Brothers, Johnny Showcase of America’s Got Talent, viral TikTok musicians Cory Singer and ElectraQueens, and celebrity chef Tony Luke Jr. Ryan has also been seen singing the National Anthem for The Baltimore Ravens, The Baltimore Orioles, The Cincinnati Reds, and will be performing the Anthem for the Boston Red Sox on July 9th. Growing up in Marlton, NJ, Ryan has worked with unfinished songs of the massively talented late Christina Grimmie. She finds comfort in knowing Christina’s work will live on through her own music. “I am from Marlton, NJ. Not only were most of my songs inspired by people here, but this town connected me to the Grimmie family and gave me the wonderful experience of working with them. I’m very grateful for where I live and have grown up.” Ryan’s music showcases the depth and vulnerability of being a teenager and explores the ups and downs that people of all ages experience. Aside from her love for singing, Brown also enjoys playing guitar, piano, and ukulele.

Brown feels so incredibly lucky that she can share her experiences with the world. She hopes while you listen to her music, you find comfort in knowing that you aren’t alone. Ryan shares, “My music always comes from a place of sadness because I love to turn something bad into something beautiful. I write my music because I know others feel the way I do. At the core is authenticity.”
