Ryder recently spoke to The Guardian about his new-found success, claiming that he was just as motivated by his love of music before fame, “You know, no one could stop me because I loved it. I didn’t need validation because music is so amazing. When you’re connected to it, when you’re singing, you feel all that fulfilment and joy. It gives you everything, so to ask anything more of it, to ask for success as well, feels almost greedy, takes the magic out of it. If music is your whole life, if it’s the reason you have that spark inside you, your cup’s full, essentially.”

Speaking about Eurovision, Ryder claimed, “I’ve always been a fan of Eurovision but that wasn’t my dream – I never thought I’d love to do it. Making a career for yourself in music is a mountain to climb, and the wind’s against you. Dreaming of Eurovision on top of that – you’re basically saying: I want to be the 1% of the 1%. But when the opportunity came along, my heart leapt at it.”
