Originally from Southern California, but now based in Honolulu, Hawaii, singer-songwriter Bryn Ryan-Van Dyke has no intention of letting life pass her by, but rather, she is determined to fill up every second of it. Bryn is living her dream as a singer songwriter, effectively living a second life, and her music takes its inspiration from other storytelling artists such as Alanis Morisette, Stevie Nicks, Amy Lee of Evanescence, and Elton John, and songwriters like Carole King.
Bryn Ryan-Van Dyke has the ability to entice you one minute, seduce you in the next, and in the third, have you pumping the air with your fists dancing. Her most recent single, ‘It’s My Movie’, sees her encourage everyone to do what she has done, in reclaiming her life and doing what she truly wants, rather than endlessly following on in the same drudgery. The track is equal parts ballad and absolute banger, while at the same time an inspirational self-help anthem. The track is jam-packed with soaring guitar solos that match Bryn’s vocals note for note, making her voice as much an instrument as any other.
The music video for ‘It’s My Movie’, directed by Matt Epstein of HIP Video Productions, sees Bryn’s lyrics laid over women and men taking on and overcoming the challenges of life. Whether it’s climbing mountains or skydiving, or building that dream home, or taking on the job you’ve always wanted, there’s no dream or ambition that’s too small – it’s all shooting for the moon, and writing the script for our own personal movie. If we don’t take control of our own lives, then why should anyone else? Refocus on what your life is about, and let Bryn Ryan-Van Dyke encourage you to do it.
