A beautiful, heartfelt lament to unrequited love, “No Name” showcases Ryan’s stunning voice and song writing ability. It’s the lead song from Ryan’s self-titled six track mini album which includes “First Kiss”, also debuted on Britain’s Got Talent in the semi-final.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talent Indeed 23 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Talent" shows of one kind or another, more often than not, display
anything but. It's good, therefore, that once in a blue moon we
stumble across an artist of real stature. Young Mr Shaughnessy has
a bright career ahead of him on the evidence available in this small
but perfectly-formed collection of six self-penned songs. He has the
kind of voice which would thaw the coldest heart; quite simply one of
the loveliest instruments I have heard in a long, long while. There is
a simple and unaffected quality in both his beautiful melodies and
uncluttered lyrics which belie his tender years. These are songs which
demonstrate a secure and remarkably mature grasp of compositional form.
Tender, unabashedly emotional and easy on the ear, they demand to be heard.

There isn't a bad egg in the box but especial mention should be made of the
sublime opening number 'No Name', a performance so focused and authentic that
it quite takes one's breath away and 'First Kiss', a song so deftly realised
that it has Mrs Wolf reaching for her hankie by the end of the first chorus!

One can only begin to imagine what further treats the future may bring.

I'm ready for the next installment.

Highly Recommended.

For all the dance crews, 12 year olds with pushy mother syndrome and pirouetting dog acts it brings up, very occasionally 'Britain's Got Talent' does actually find some promising new talent, as it indeed did with two acts this year. One of them was Essex based, Madness-esque three piece Loveable Rogues who are releasing their debut set of material later in the year, and the other was 19 year old Dublin singer/songwriter Ryan O'Shaughnessy, who, not content with standing behind other people's songs on the Irish version of 'The Voice', left that show and decided to audition for 'BGT' with his own self penned songs.

Ryan sings and writes with a maturity, rawness and depth that belies his age, but that strikes a universal chord. Though only 6 tracks long, this is the sort of album you can have on repeat for a good few hours. Songs like 'No Name' and 'First Kiss' are simple and understated and the production on them really reflects that - his songs tell a story and you feel very drawn in listening to them. That's the test of an artist who is really and truly about the music, and I feel confident with a talent for songwriting this strong Ryan will have no problem in making a mainstream success of himself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening 26 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I listened to the whole album which only consists of 6 songs with an open mind... I did see him singing live 'No Name' and that's why I primarily bought this album.
I felt Ryan O'Shaughnessy a talented singer, song writer for his age! However, although the melodic songs and lyrics are lovely to listen to I found it all rather simplistic in terms of wanting to hear over and over again. But over all it was a great attempt on his debut album... i look forward to him maturing with his future songs and possible albums!?

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for more! 17 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you liked his audition you'll love this EP. The songs are all so personal and emotional and sung with such conviction that it is hard not to love it. It is perfeect for both active listening and pleasant background music. The only thing I would say is that some of the songs sound very similar in ways, for me personally I don't mind this, but I know that other people don't like music like this.

I can't wait for his next album, and I'll be pre-ordering it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great new talent 15 Aug 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Very soulful and looking forward to further albums. Must agree with another reviewer who was disappointed with the voice on No Name compared to the BGT live version. The track live was much better, and agree it's probably been over-produced! Still love the artist, the songs and having listened to the youtube No Name many, many times looked forward to purchasing this album.
