Rylan Gleave


Rylan is a composer and vocalist working in experimental and divergent fields. His work has been praised as “haunting" by The Herald, “dripping with spectral dread” by SNACK Magazine, and “rapturous” by The Scotsman, who named him ‘One to Watch’ 2021, describing him as “one of the brightest lights in Scotland’s new music scene”.

Under the moniker All Men Unto Me, Rylan creates genre-merging work, with 2023 debut release In Chemical Transit reviewed as “breath-taking” by Veil of Sound, and a “an outstanding and mind blowing recording” by Echoes and Dust. The live launch was a sold-out show at St Vincent’s Chapel, Edinburgh, with the support of Chamber Music Scotland. All Men Unto Me’s second album has grown via Sound and Music’s New Voices Programme, exploring the conditions of survivorship and trans-masculinity with an Anglican filter.

Recent notable performances have been at Supersonic Festival, Roadburn Festival, Islington Assembly Hall, Amplifest, ArcTanGent, Leipziger Jazztage, and Stadtgarten Köln. Rylan recorded at Abbey Road Studios with Oliver Vibrans, Paraorchestra, and Pulled By Magnets, where his performance of Scott Walker’s The Drift was premiered on Sky Arts, 2022. He was a Musician in Residence 2022-23 and serves as a Trustee for Paraorchestra, and on the ABRSM’s Music Education Advisory Committee and as their Youth Voice Lead. He holds an MMus and BMus in Composition from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
