In Self-Induced Regicide, Canadian writer, Ryan Blair, embarks on a journey of self-reflection through poetry and lyrics, sharing with readers his battles with self-doubt to shed light on our grasp of identity and contemporary attitudes towards mental health.
Expressed with wit and humour, whilst also cutting deep, Ryan's commentary combines unfiltered, intrusive and introverted perspective with a consideration of broader ideologies and philosophies on a wider scale, to deliver a collection which maps a development in thought, retains a reflection on the self, and ultimately moves through periods of trouble and anguish to close on a sense of optimism and acceptance.

I have a strong passion for making people laugh and smile, my other passion is expressing raw and sometimes intrusive emotions through lyrics, music and poetry. I constantly fall short of my own aspirations, and that's something that is going to end, because I'm here to stay. With that, I figured I'd start sending a little madness and weirdness everybody's way.
