A remarkable man and a "heroic"
voice - both are captured on the self-titled CD Ronan - Ronan Tynan's
solo debut for Decca/Universal to be released March 1st. "For the first
time," the Irish tenor explains, "I'm singing material that has
tremendous depth and weight... a greater variety of music [beyond] the classic
'Irish tenor' vein." Produced by Nick Patrick (Amici Forever), the
disc features 14 tracks including originals penned by notable writers
such as Richard Marx, ,Desmond Child and Aldo Nova among others, as well
as interpretations of popular favorites such as "Man of La Mancha,"
"From A Distance" and "Amazing Grace." On the heels of the CD release,
Ronan will embark on a U.S. tour officially kicking off at the opening of
Notre Dame University's new theater on St. Patrick's Day, March 17th.
Ronan is a musical labor of love from an artist whose ability to
connect and resonate with audiences of all ages is remarkable. Many are
already familiar with his distinctive voice that has often lent itself to
helping those battling back against despair.
From singing at the funerals of those lost on 9/11, (and numerous benefits since for their
families, including the NYPD and New York Fire Department), he was also
personally asked to sing at the funeral of President Reagan and the recent
Presidential Inauguration Prayer Service for George W. Bush. All of
America knows his rendition of "God Bless America" that has brought pride
to sold-out baseball games at Yankee Stadium and national TV audiences.
Ronan Tynan's voice is filled with a comforting understanding gained
from overcoming his own adversity and enormous obstacles. Born with a
lower limb disability that eventually caused his legs to be amputated, he
later went on to win numerous Paralympics medals. Ronan also earned a
degree as a full-fledged medical doctor from the prestigious Trinity
College, and ultimately conquered singing after winning a BBC talent
show, "Go For It," and singing as one of the Irish Tenors to worldwide
acclaim. "Halfway Home," his autobiography was published in February of
2001, and Tynan also enjoys a busy career as a motivational speaker in
front of sold out crowds everywhere.
Unstoppable is synonymous with Ronan Tynan. Upon his CD release March 1st,
the larger than life singer was seen on national TV programs
such as Good Morning America and ABC's Primetime Live among others. On
March 11th, the tenor participated in an event hosted by The
Smithsonian Associates, the education and outreach arm of the Smithsonian
Institution, an evening of interview and performance in Washington DC.
A national U.S. tour sponsored by Baldwin Pianos and Tourism Ireland
will continue throughout the spring, and Tynan is already tapped to
appear on the annual July 4th PBS special, "A Capital Fourth."

Many musical artists and groups are active in their communities. Some perform before faithful fans on a regular schedule each week or weekend. They are independent musicians as compared to those music industry big names. We often think of the big name groups because we are exposed to the marketing blitz. I have had the opportunity to hear a number of independent performers with Capital Celtic. Some are just starting out and are perhaps a little rough around the edges and some are so outstanding I wonder why they have not entered into the "Big Time" music industry. Perhaps you have experienced the same? Perhaps you know of a new artist or group that you believe has talent that would be enjoyed by others? If so send me a CD and Bio and we will feature them on The Capital Celtic Network. - EEHealy
