McMahon returns to Char’s in Alberni

Ryan McMahon returns to Char’s Landing on May 4 from 8–10 p.m.

Ryan McMahon’s sound is often described as “rock as folk can get before it starts to roll.” Check it out for yourself this Saturday, May 4 as McMahon returns to Char’s Landing from 8–10 p.m.

McMahon’s album, All Good Stories, released in April 2010 was the recipient of the Vancouver Island Music Award for Album of the Year. McMahon also received Male Vocalist of the Year and Artist of the Year awards. Since the ceremony in Victoria last year, McMahon has had the busiest year to date in his career.

“My main influences include Neil Young, Warren Zevon and Eddie Vedder,” he says. “I surround myself with the work of many singer/songwriters, but I’ve also been known to spin good, honest country music, some vintage punk and under the right boozy moon, some James Brown as well.”
