Ria Rua is an up and coming female artist from Ireland.

She began her musical life as a drummer - drumming professionally in Ireland and abroad - before deciding to shift her focus to songwriting, singing and production.

She released her first single 'I Can't Sleep' in May 2020. It has been played on multiple national and local stations in Ireland and the UK and was chosen as one of "16 new Irish songs you should hear this week" by Nialler9.

Ria's follow up singles have all received national and international radio play, with her most recent two singles being playlisted in multiple countries, including on German national radio.

"A delicious slice of foreboding electro-indie. It drags like witch-house but bangs like electro-rock." - Nialler9

"Definitely not like anything we've played before - if I hear another RIA RUA track I'll know it's her - it's brilliant!" - BBC Ulster

"Brilliant and exciting" - 2FM

"Lovely and Dark" - 98FM
