Ryan Frank Cabrera was born on July 18, 1982, in Dallas, Texas. Guitarist, songwriter, and Texas native Cabrera never planned on a career in music. His hobby turned into a passion after hearing Dave Matthews, causing him to turn his back on the noisy punk rock of his high-school band and pick up an acoustic guitar. His first group found popularity in the Dallas area, sharing stages with Cheap Trick, Ben Harper, and Third Eye Blind, before Cabrera's departure.
In 2001, Cabrera signed a record deal with Atlantic records and began working on his major label debut. Ryan, a multi dimensional player and songwriter teamed up with the infamous Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls) to co-produce the album, Take It All Away, which was released in 2004. That album spawned the hit “On The Way Down” which hit #15 on the Billboard hot 100. Take it All Away sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone and reached #8 on the Billboard top 200 charts, selling over 67,000 copies on the first week and eventually was certified Double Platinum. Ryan’s follow up album, You Stand Watching arrived in 2005 and included hit singles “Shine On” and “Photo”. This continued to propel Ryan into stardom and opened the doors for a deal with MTV and his own TV show, Score. After the TV stint, Ryan released “I Will Remember You”, a sync dream. The song was used as the closing montage for the entire series of Will and Grace, as well as numerous other notable tv placements. The success of the song was evident by its rise on the iTunes 100.
Ryan followed this with his 4th album, The Moon Under Water, which was released in 2008. Since then, Ryan has been relentlessly working on his craft. Staying on the road and writing amazing songs is what Ryan is best known for and that is what he aims to do on his next studio album. Ryan's new single, produced by Grammy Award Winner Nathan Chapman, "I See Love" is out now.
