Ryan Nealon has been stirring up the industry lately with over 200,000 streams and over 10,000 followers on social media. Today, we are reminded of his great potential in artistry with his tremendous and emotionally heavy record, “Until The World Ends”.
The song begins with a moody intro that sets a melancholic tone. This tone is almost immediately pierced with the vocal outflow from Ryan. He jumps in with the lyrics “I thought I could carry your heartache” and at this line, we knew we got ourselves strapped in for a sonic and emotional ride. Vocally, his falsetto work is out of this world and his lyric sheet is similar to intricate poetry. After the last major chorus of the song, he explodes with beautiful and light soundings that soak into your very being. Ryan Nealon is definitely a great songwriter, hands down, but more importantly, he can translate it with emotion and passion to listeners.

Thanks for being here today with us at Buzz Music, Ryan! Your new song “Until The World Ends” is a ride emotionally. What is the full story here? Is this about a love interest?
"Till The World Ends" is a haunting ballad about loving someone who will never love you the same. This song is inspired by a person I fell for in the past, and although we knew that nothing would ever evolve between us, the situation always felt unfinished, but only for me. I wanted to write a song from the perspective of someone who loves so hard even when they know that nothing will come from it, and I think I did just that."
Production-wise, did you have any goals that you wanted to hit with “Until The World Ends” and did you accomplish those? For this song, in particular, I really wanted it to be more experimental than my other songs especially when it came to the vocal production. I took a lot of inspiration from Bon Iver and Imogen Heap, and I wanted to really make something powerful and real. Ultimately, I think the goal was achieved and when your producer is as good as mine I almost feel like I'm cheating haha--shameless plug for Zack Djurich who's been producing my music this year.
Your falsetto work is unworldly. At what age did you start singing and have you had professional training? Thank you so much! Funny enough I think that my falsetto/my mid-range is my weakness, but I've been working on it for years so I appreciate it. Also, I started singing when I was 5, but I didn't start to really pursue music until 18, which is around the same time when I got professional training at UCLA.
What have been some of your greatest accomplishments as an artist and where do you hope your music takes you?
I mean this year alone I've been able to put out 4 songs that I absolutely love. My goal at the top of the year was to get SOMETHING out, but I did not expect the support I've been getting. I've gotten over 250k streams this year being completely independent, and those were numbers I had dreamt of in the past. My goal for the future is to keep grinding and to keep releasing music that I love and believe in. Also, would love to be able to quit my day job, so let's hope this music thing starts working out for me!!! Haha.
Lastly, what do you have planned next with your music career?
Next year, I want to put out a record. I also would love to work on booking a tour--I already have a few dates down, but I have to fill in the blanks now. Anyways, it's going to be fun, and I can't wait to see where I'm at a year from now.
