Ryan Treacy known professionally as LG4 Trey is an Irish artist from Cork, Ireland. His music is an
invigorating blend of 2000's alternative rock and modern hip-hop. The rappers’s main influences
include bands and artists such as Green Day, Sum 41, Linkin Park, The Gorillaz, Lil Peep and
many more. With his fanbase growing steadily across Ireland LG4 Trey’s reach continues to
spread to the UK as well as the United States and Central Europe.
With early exposure to a wide variety of music at home ranging from Paulo Nutini to ACDC the
artist’s appreciation for different genres is one of the main inspirations behind his songs today.
Ryan stumbled upon rap music at the age of seven when he found an old iPod in his grandparents house. He explains the occasion as the first major impact in his growing passion for hip-hop, “It introduced me to a whole side of music that I never knew existed” the artist says. From 50 cent to D12 and Missy Elliott, his love for rap as a genre started very early on.
With his grandfather working the festival sites, he grew up closely watching other artists perform
and engage with their fans live. This made the rapper desire to entertain the crowd rather than be
a regular spectator and motivated him to pursue that later on.
After recording with different studios such as Diffusion Lab & The Kabin Studios, the young rapper released his debut EP "Nothing Lasts Forever" on the 8th of May 2020. The EP is available to buy at www.islandofmusic.ie.
