Ryan Cabrera

Ryan Cabrera is a singer/songwriter. He was born and raised in Dallas, TX. His debut album Take It All Away entered the Billboard 200 Album charts at #8. It's co-produced by Ryan along with John Rzeznik (of The Goo Goo Dolls).

Ryan began writing and playing guitar from a very young age. He is no stranger to performing, as he opened and headlined at numerous premiere venues in Dallas, while still only in high school. Ryan opened for such bands as Sister Hazel, Nine Days, Wheatus, Dexter Freebish, and The Pat McGee Band. This soon spawned more extensive touring across the US. In pursuit of his musical career, Ryan left college behind and moved to LA a year ago.

Ryan landed a deal at EMI Music Publishing and a recording contract on E.V.L.A/Atlantic Records shortly thereafter. He began collaborating for his album with high-profile EMI writers such as Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams), Kara Dioguardi (Enrique Iglesias, Celine Dion), Jimmy Harry (Kelly Clarkson) and John Rzeznik.

The 1st single off of Cabrera's album "On The Way Down" goes to Top 40 and Hot AC radio on May 17th 2004. The song's video features actress and Geffen/Interscope recording artist Ashlee Simpson (who stars in the WB network hit series 7th Heaven). Ryan is managed by Joe Simpson (Jessica Simpson and Ashlee's father).

The grassroots word of mouth buzz continues to grow as the Aware Marketing street team (who marketed and broke John Mayer and Jason Mraz) have been brought on to work Ryan's project. Most recently Ryan has been slated as the opening act for Jewel, who will be touring from May-July.

You will also find Ryan featured in the April issue of Seventeen, Popstar Magazine's May issue, and in Teen People, Acoustic Guitar World, M Magazine, Performing Songwriter and BOP in June. Ryan will be again featured in July's issues of Seventeen and YM magazine with more to follow shortly.
