Ryan Cabrera biography (bio):
Cabrera's first band was in high school, a punk band named Caine. Dave Matthews gave him the inspiration to pick up an acoustic guitar instead and that's when he formed the band Rubix Groove. After years of making a name for himself in Dallas, he decided to finally branch out on his own. In 2001, Cabrera went into the studio to record his own independent album, Elm St.. It is now a very rare CD because it is not produced any more. Only a few hundred copies were made.
Cabrera is managed by Joe Simpson, manager and father of pop singers Ashlee and Jessica Simpson. Simpson introduced Cabrera to record producer, songwriter Curt Frasca (Madonna, Avril Lavigne, Mariah Carey) late 2003 and along with songwriter Sabelle Breer the seeds for Ryan's first major-label album, Take It All Away were planted. Ryan got hooked up with John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls to co-produce the album. Reportedly, writing a bulk of the album in a week. It debuted on August 17, 2004, at number eight on the Billboard 200 album chart.
In early 2004, Cabrera had become known for his up-tempo pop-rock single "On the Way Down", which peaked at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number seven on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream and has since sold over two million copies. "On the Way Down" was followed by Cabrera's second single, "True", and his third single, "40 Kinds of Sadness" was top 40 airplay within weeks of release.
Cabrera's sophomore album, You Stand Watching, was released on September 20, 2005, and it included his new single, "Shine On" and his other single "Photo".
In Wal-Mart stores, the You Stand Watching album comes with a bonus disc. The bonus disc includes two new songs, "All Night Train" and "I Know What It Feels Like," as well as acoustic versions of "Exit To Exit", "Take It All Away" and "Shame On Me". If you bought this cd on the iTunes Store it came with the bonus track "Sentimental." This record peaked at #24 on the Billboard charts, and is a reported Gold Album.
In 2006 Cabrera released a single entitled "I Will Remember You" via iTunes. The song never had a video shot for it nor has it appeared on any of Cabrera's current albums. However, the song was featured for promotion in the series finale of the NBC series Will & Grace.
