Grand Design – Ryan MacGrath


"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality. " John Lennon

How perfectly true!  That quote has been on my mind since the minute I met Ryan MacGrath NS at Sullivan’s Pond in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  And as I read of his cool collaborations, hear of his shared concerts and listen to his latest creation Cooper Hatch Paris – I am amazed at the artistry behind the artist.

And truth be told – inspired by it.

Ryan MacGrath - CoverThere’s an energy to this guy – kind of like a wave attracting creative contemporaries of every kind.  From stunning album graphics to classic wardrobe design, breathtaking video production to stellar studio partners – Ryan MacGrath brings together the best.

The story of how one fan of MacGrath’s paintings (Chantal Kreviazuk) found her way onto his record for a duet (“Bird & Cage”) is case in point...part serendipitous yes, but more over it’s art appreciating art and MacGrath certainly has brought together many artists who believe in bringing his dream to reality...

All part of the grand design I’m sure! (Pun intended) SABS

  1. Hello Ryan

    I am from Country Harbour originally, and actually went to school with your sisters and brother. All the best to you. It's great that a guy from a small area like ours down here can make a splash. All the best.
