Speaking about the video singer- songwriter Ryan said, “It was amazing seeing the video come to life in the way it did, sticking with the original concept that love is universal and there are testing moments in every relationship. I can’t wait for all Eurovision fans to hear the track and check out the video!”
The video was directed by Christian Tierney who has worked with artists including The Weeknd, Macklemore, Demi Lovato, Kendrick Lamar, Drake,The 1975, James Bay as well as for organisations like TIDAL, Universal, Sony and Warner Music.Christian also creates video and photo content for UFC champion Conor McGregor.
The video was choreographed by Ciaran Connolly who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, on television and major arena tours, including Take That, Robbie Williams, Katherine Jenkins, Darcey Bussell, Michael Buble, Will Young, Cheryl Cole, Girls Aloud, Five, Liberty X, Atomic Kitten, Blue,The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Strictly Come Dancing and Royal Variety Performances. Ciaran has worked as assistant choreographer on The Daniel O Donnell Rock and Roll UK Tour and on Sir Cliff Richard’s ‘Soulicious Tour.’
The dancers performing in the video are Alan McGrath (who previously performed as a backing dancer and drummer for Ryan Dolan’s Only Love Survives Eurovision performance in Malmo in 2013) and Kevin O’Dwyer.
Ryan also took to Instragram to share photos of his mother’s reaction when she listened to the Eurovision track for the first time in New York this week. In an Instagram post he said: “My number one critic, who just so happens to be my mother listened to my latest single “Together” during breakfast in NYC this week, and it’s the first time I’ve seen her more excited than I am about an up and coming release. My mam is the reason why I started singing, the reason why I love what I do, and the reason why I’m on this planet. So basically don’t blame me, blame my mother (emoji love heart) #IrelandForEuro2018 #Together
