Happy Birthday Roma Ryan

Roma describing the recording of A Day Without Rain in 2000

January 20th marks the birthday of Roma Ryan the Grammy award lyricist for Enya. I would describe Roma’s work as delicate, beautiful and timeless. Her works are something that one would describe as calm, thoughtful but with an underlying depth and current. Her poetry just grabs you gently and before you know it, you are drawn to her magical world. It is a world where Tolkien’s Elves would be seen. But it can also reflect the human condition yet never losing its elegance in a world of buildings and mechanical noise. Enya,  stated that the importance of Roma’s and Nicky Ryan’s contributions are such that without them, “Enya” would not exist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roma_Ryan So happy birthday Roma.

  1. ¡Hola! Saludos desde Argentina. Amo profundamente a Enya, tiene una voz maravillosa y transmite mucha pasión. Las letras de Roma Ryan son bellísimas, hablan de una calidez y una espiritualidad incomparables, además los climas que logra Nicky Ryan en las canciones con el piano y los teclados hacen volar la imaginación. Sinceramente, forman un gran equipo. Abrazos.
