RAGGED Excluse: Ryan Beatty

Straight from the pages of the new issue of RAGGED, we’re thrilled to give you an exclusive excerpt from our featured story with Ryan Beatty! Be sure to grab the full issue download (for free!) for the rest of the article and more photos with Ryan Full issue download here!

The 17-year-old singer has had his share of naysayers. Many of them fellow high schoolers. The launch of his musical career coincided with geometry and tardy bells after all. But don’t feel too sorry for the guy, he likes being the underdog. “I always have something to work toward.” His perseverance began back in 2009. Once he realized his talent was more than just singing in the shower, he decided to share his gift with the world. “I’d always wanted to do music as a career, but it wasn’t until then that I had that faith in myself.” So he did what any budding modern artist would do. He perfected the art of self-promotion and began posting videos of himself covering today’s all-star songbirds on YouTube. And the rest is 30-million-viewers history.

Fans have fallen for Beatty’s intoxicating covers of Bruno Mars, 5 Seconds of Summer, Lorde, and The Beatles. But even though he sounds like he could sing the phonebook, there’s one particular anomaly he won’t touch. “I tried to cover Elton John’s ‘Bennie and the Jets,’ and it was good, but I couldn’t post it; it’s a really hard song to pull off, and I just didn’t feel worthy.” On the flip side, there’s one he loves to cover and—fingers crossed—hopes to one day collaborate with: John Mayer.
