Pop star on the rise Ryland James releases his first single for 2022 “I Give Everything” via Universal Music Canada and Republic Records
The track comes after a year of self-reflection and immense personal growth for the Deseronto, ON native who not only came to terms with who he is but embraced himself with pride.
James says, “I’m thrilled to be putting this song out into the world as the first of a new era in my artistry. This is truly the most exciting time I’ve experienced in my career and personal growth thus far. That being said, there’s so much to come in terms of visuals, sounds, stories, and an overall heightened sense of creativity for me. “I Give Everything” is a song I wrote early on in my relationship about falling in love for the first time. I was completely immersed and infatuated with the intensity of the feelings I was experiencing, but I was also fearful of losing myself in the process somehow. The lyrics embody that push-pull between the simultaneous acceptance of and resistance to pure passion.”
The new single “I Give Everything” Ryland follows another successful holiday season for James who released “A Christmas To Remember,” featuring Ralph for the 2021 holiday season. The artist is no stranger to seasonal material, he released his debut holiday EP, A Little Christmas in 2020, which includes his smash rendition of “Please Come Home For Christmas,” that has garnered over 16 million streams.
In his short but impressive career James has garnered two JUNO Awards nominations and high praise from critics including Billboard. His smash hit single “In My Head” from his debut self-titled EP reached platinum certification in Canada, while his catalogue has garnered over 89 million global streams in just a short amount of time.
