Together with his band, Ryan Jarvis has garnered the attention of many radio stations, one of which being Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1, in his short career. Supporting new record ‘Think About It’, the band play their biggest headline to date with an evening at Night People on the 19th April, and we caught up with Ryan beforehand.
// How would you describe yourself as a band?
Overly critical of my own work, lyrically honest indie pop.
// Is there anything you’re working on we should know about?
I’m currently working on a new single, which we’ll be getting back into the studio to record in the next month or so.
// Dream band or artist to share a stage with?
It changes all the time. I’ve been lucky enough to support some of my favourite bands with my acoustic over the last few years, but if I was to answer it right now, I’d say the 1975. They’re on a mammoth tour all over the place at the minute, me and my drummer Dunc would love to share the stage with them a few times.
// Do you have a favourite venue in Manchester?
There are so many venues in Manchester I love. To play, it would have to be Gullivers as I’ve had some memorable sold out shows in there. To attend a gig, it would have to be The Apollo. I got to play there a few years back as well. Mint venue with a wealth of greats that have graced that stage over the years.
// What was the last film you?
Triple Frontier on Netflix.
// If you could master one instrument, what would it be?
I still struggle with the guitar, so I’d have to say that.
// Where do you see yourself in the next 12 months?
Hopefully working on an album with the backing of a dedicated management team and on a load of festival bills.
// What is the best purchase you ever made?
Deffo my white jeans.
