By Small Ruin is an anagram for Bryan Mullis, keeping his music and lifestyle as true to self as possible.
The incredible brand new single from ‘By Small Ruin’ is entitled ‘Take Me With You’ .
Bryan Mullis talks about the story behind the song saying “This song was written after catching up with an old girlfriend online. We spent a few days messaging back and forth when I realized we had inadvertently moved beyond surface-level chit chat. Suddenly, I was 17 again and ready to go wherever she lead”.
Busking since high school, the college dropout has made his way across the country playing to anyone who listened. His talent and dedication lead to sharing the stage with artists like DAWES, WILD and Briston Maroney.
As a teen, one of Bryan’s favourite activities with his friends was climbing water towers and hanging upside down from the top by only their knees. Bryan was notorious for doing what he wanted, when he wanted, including sneaking out of his parent’s house and hitch-hiking a 10-hour ride to Florida to surprise his girlfriend on the beach.
