The iconic series began in July 1966 and is the longest-running children’s show in Australia. It was admitted into the Logies’ Hall of Fame in 2006, the program’s 40th anniversary year, in recognition of the strong influence the show has had on at least three generations of Australian children. It is one of only five Australian TV programs to be inducted.

Fellow country artists Fanny Lumsden and Amber Lawrence were on the show in 2020, while Amy Sheppard appeared in a 2023 episode. The series has also seen the likes of Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem, Kate Miller-Heidke, Hamish & Andy, Molly Meldrum, Magda Szubanski, Dave Hughes and many more visit the Play School set.

In 2022, Ryan released Songs for Charlie, a kid’s country album that includes covers of her daughter’s favourites, as well as four original tracks. It incorporates words and verses in the Gamilaraay language and the musical backing of the didgeridoo and clapsticks.

Hailing from Tamworth in New South Wales, Loren was also a Toyota Star Maker Finalist in 2022. She teamed up with fellow 2022 finalist Billie-Jo Porter to write her latest single Bounce Back. The saucy track serves as a dopamine hit and confidence boost.

Having shared the stage with Jessica Mauboy and Kelly Rowland, Ryan was known as an R&B artist before making the switch to country music. The First Nations singer-songwriter, proudly from the Gamilaraay Nation, writes original songs and translates well known Australian songs into her traditional language. 

Ryan will head to Nashville in June to play Nashville’s CMA Fest.
