Laura Ryder Ampersand

Laura Ryder is a songwriter hailing from Co. Mayo, who is now making music with full band under the title Laura Ryder Ampersand. Laura plays piano, ukulele, guitar and sings.

 

Ampersand consists of Lauren Geary on bass, Shay Sweeney on drums, Josh Meakin on guitar, and Matilda O'Mahony & Emily McCormick on backing vocals.

 

The ensuing music is a mix of everything they get their ears on, taking influence from sources like alternative pop, classical, folk, blues, and jazz.

They are currently working on material for their next release.
