Vancouver Island singer-songwriter returns to Char’s Landing for release of seventh album

Ryan McMahon’s newest album Live Now dropped in November 2023

Ryan McMahon, a singer-songwriter from Vancouver Island, is starting a tour this month that will cover two provinces. He kicks off the tour with two dates on Vancouver Island, including a stop at Char’s Landing in Port Alberni.

McMahon returns to Char’s—one of his favourite Western Canadian haunts—on Friday, Feb. 23 to celebrate the release of his seventh full album, Live Now.

Three of McMahon’s singles, starting with “One More Fire,” followed by “Lost & Found” and “Sometimes Life’s Amazing,” have been added to more than 150 stations world-wide and the current single “Feed Your Mind” was added to 17 stations in its first week of tracking.

“This has been the longest, but most rewarding, recording of an album that I’ve ever created,” admits McMahon. “Taking the time to ensure the songs were recorded with the right people, the right way, at the right time has built an appreciation in myself for the quality of the music we are about to deliver.”

This year, touring will see McMahon performing as a duo with long-time friend Joel Spillette on keys.

The show at Char’s Landing starts at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be found at or by calling or texting Char at 250-730-1636.
