A re-interpretation of the Enya staple, 'Only Time' is the second single from Ryan Downey’s upcoming all-vocal mini LP 'Me & Her'.

Composed using only his own voice and body percussion, the Melbourne indie folk artist takes the song to an infectiously upbeat, yet emotionally resonating place, reflecting indications of his musical upbringing - The Traveling Wilburys, John Lennon and Paul Simon’s 'Graceland'.

'Me & Her' was recorded over the summer of 2015 when Ryan broke his arm and was unable to play any instruments for 6 weeks. The first single Tidings was released in November. When premiering the video clip directed by Alex Badham (World’s End Press, Totally Mild, Oh Mercy), 'The Music' wrote; ‘beguiling baritone vocals push and pull and float atop the instrumental tides, conspiring to deliver an enchanting, laid-back package of astonishing a cappella'.

The full mini-LP, which was mixed by Anna Laverty (Nick Cave, Cut Copy) and mastered by Ross Cockle (Sing Sing), will be released through New Morning Records/Gaga Digi on March 22nd. It will feature two original tracks as well as a cappella covers of songs by the female songwriters Tiny Ruins, Joanna Newsom, Lhasa de Sela, Enya and The McGarrigle sisters.
