Following Ryan Beatty‘s pop-music career path is a hobby of sorts for us at the Beehive.
Last month, the Clovis native released a video for the first single off his self-titled E.P. It was surprisingly non-poppy (in a good way) and soulful and played against the idea of Beatty as Fresno’s Justin Bieber. Well, the full E.P. was released on iTtunes on Tuesday and got a seemingly good response.
#7 on the pop charts already? thank you guys so much. I can’t explain how grateful I am for each and every one of you.

This is the first batch of songs he’s released since his “Because of You” EP in 2012. That album broke the Billboard 200 (peaking at 94) and was 17 on the Independent Albums charts. Beatty’s full-length album is scheduled for release in 2014.
