Ryan MacGrath is a Canadian singer-songwriter, whose folk-pop style is frequently compared to Rufus Wainwright and Hawksley Workman.[1] Born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia[2] and raised in Guysborough County, he has been an active member of the Halifax music scene. He is currently based in Innsbruck, Austria.[1] MacGrath first moved to Halifax to study painting at NSCAD.[2] After buying a guitar, he began performing with the band Ryan MacGrath and the woodenhouse, which released a self-titled EP in 2006 before changing its name to The Missing City Starlight.[3] MacGrath subsequently released a solo EP, In My Own Company, in 2009,[1] and the full-length album Cooper Hatch Paris in 2010.[4] MacGrath continues to exhibit his painting. While he was preparing Cooper Hatch Paris, pop singer Chantal Kreviazuk saw and liked one of his gallery pieces; MacGrath arranged a trade in which he gave the painting to Kreviazuk in exchange for a guest contribution to the album.[4] He also funded the album in part by auctioning his services as a songwriter, offering to write a romantic Valentine's Day song for the winning bidder and their partner.[4] In 2011, Cooper Hatch Paris was awarded Music Nova Scotia's award for Alternative Recording of the Year.[5] In addition to this, the recording was nominated for a number of East Coast Music Awards, including Alternative Recording of the Year, Male Solo Recording of the Year and Rising Star Recording of the Year.[6] Two of MacGrath's songs were featured in Thom Fitzgerald's movie Cloudburst, starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Flicker. MacGrath contributed 'Bird and Cage' from 'Cooper Hatch Paris' and 'Like You Do' - a song penned specifically for the movie. In November 2011, MacGrath was commissioned to pen a song for their annual Black Tie Gala to raise awareness for mental health by the Mental Health Foundation Nova Scotia.

MacGrath wrote the track "One Million Fireflies" and performed with a 30 piece gospel choir. MacGrath moved to Innsbruck, Austria in January 2012, where he now has residency. Since moving to Austria he has been writing material for his second full-length album and third EP (tentatively titled The Pink Lark). He is openly gay.[1] Read more on Last.fm.
