Q&A: Ryan Vail

Ryan Vail

Put in contact via Champion Sound Recordings (Ryan Vails place of residence), we got to ask the pair some questions.  The Ireland based duo are currently gaining attention all around Ireland as well as gigs in Europe, we can’t see it being long before Ryan Vail makes a lasting impact on the global stage.


Soundspace:

So who is Ryan Vail?

Ryan Vail:

We’re asked this all the time. I started producing by myself. So all the sound loudspeaker MySpace etc, were all set up under Ryan Vail. Katie joined the band for the first EP, She wanted to remain as a silent partner because she was a secondary school music teacher. By the time she was comfortable in the spot light. The pages had gained to big a following to start changing the names.


Soundspace:

You take stage with a pretty intense live set up, are your productions recorded live or more so in the box?

Ryan Vail:

Everything we record is always recorded in a live format. We use a boss 16 track recorder, so it gives it a garage band feel!


Soundspace:

The Ryan Vail name has been getting a lot of positive feedback both online and from radio, do you feel yourselves under pressure when planning future projects?

Ryan Vail:

We don’t feel under pressure at all. It gives us confidence to try harder and make our fans and label proud!


Soundspace:

How does a typical studio session go?

Ryan Vail:

We always start by laying down a drum loop. Then build a groove using either keyboard or a synth bassline before lyrics are added.


Soundspace:

If you could live in one country for a day, where would it be?

Ryan Vail:

Austria is amazing. Day time radio stations are epic, they play techno during the day.
