Ryan Cabrera – American singer and songwriter
Ryan Cabrera was born on 18 July 1982 in Dallas, Texas. When he was 15, Ryan bought himself a guitar to nourish his love for music. Cabrera wrote his first song almost immediately and joined the band CAIN, which was formed by his friends. Ryan was the back vocalist and guitarist.
Very soon, Ryan realized that playing in local bands wasn’t enough for him. While working with numerous groups, the singer was dreaming about a solo career and popularity. When Cabrera was working with the band Rubix Groove, he recorded three singles. The manager of the studio, where the band was working, heard the songs and allows the young man to record his first solo LP for free. The album came out in 2001. Ryan named it Elm St.
After the release of the album, Cabrera signed a contract with Atlantic Records. He immediately started working on the second album, which was later released under the name of Take It All Away. The first single from the LP, “On the Way Down", came out in 2004. It appeared on one of the local radio stations. The song was very popular. It reached the 15th spot on Billboard Hot 100.
