Ryan Beatty is making the leap from Youtube star to recording artist!
The 16-year-old has just announced that he will release his debut EP “Because of You” on July 24th. In celebration of the EP release, Beatty will hold a concert at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on July 17th featuring teen pop group – Cimorelli.
“This is my gift to the fans that have been supporting me over the last year. I have taken my time in the studio to make it just right and put all I have into every song because it is what they deserve. That is why I titled my debut EP ‘Because of You,’- without them, I wouldn’t have an EP to release,” says Beatty.
The EP will feature all original tracks co-written by Beatty and one of the highly anticipated releases is “Like Me or Not,” co-written by Beatty, John Fields and legendary multi-platinum Grammy-nominated songwriter Shelly Peiken, best known for her work on Christina Aguilera’s #1 hits. The track is a heartfelt and sincere song which gives Beatty the opportunity to explore the deeper and richer parts of his voice and delivery, setting the tone for what fans will hear on his debut album.
And the EP is just a taste of what you can expect from Ryan this year. He plans on releasing a full album before the end of 2012.
