Watch: Ryan Keen - "Focus"

At the risk of sounding particularly Anglo-philic today (note the other additions), may we point your ears -- and eyes -- in the general direction of Ryan Keen, a 24-year-old singer/songwriter from South Devon whose newest EP Focus arrives overseas this month. The title track has been making a few waves on both sides of the Atlantic thanks, in great part, to the winning animated video -- but we think the song itself is strong enough to stand on its own with or without the clever visuals. There's nothing earthshaking in terms of production or style but hey, a great melody can often make a great song. Keen's been opening for and Brit mod/troubadour (and media darling) Ed Sheeran so pay attention to this one. New non-EP track -- "Winter Rain" follows after the jump...
