The singer reveals all in this Q&A.
Ryan Cabrera is a smart, talented pop star. So we knew he could handle it when we invited him into the Take Aim ring. His latest release is the EP Wake Up Beautiful.
Did you know he paints, among other things? He also battled with his producer over one of his songs. Let's get to know the singer a little bit better, shall we?
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Dallas-born singer songwriter producer currently touring the U.S. In support of 4th studio album slated for the fall & food lover ;)
If you were not doing music, you would be…
Doing anything creative...I always thought the job Mel Gibson has in What Women Want would be pretty damn cool...or Don Draper from Mad Men.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I paint in my free time...or designing anything. If I haven't created something in a day, I feel like I wasted it.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
I wrote the song 'True' in about 20 minutes... turned out to be one of my favorite songs I've ever written. When we went to record, Johnny Rzeznik, the producer, [Rzeznik's in Goo Goo Dolls - Ed.] didn't want me to sing it in falsetto, so we got in many of long fights about it. We were like a married couple having it out everyday.
Finish this sentence: Ryan Cabrera is the artist that…
… Has always been about the love of music and never sold out to himself. Has constantly made decisions based on what was honest to himself, not done things to just be popular.
We would find Ryan Cabrera doing THIS on his day off…
Either painting or at Disneyland!!!
Ryan Cabrera's 'Wake Up Beautiful' EP is available now.
