Ryan Frank Cabrera (born July 18, 1982 in Dallas, Texas) is an American pop rock musician, who emerged onto the music scene in 2004.
Dave Matthews gave Cabrera the inspiration to pick up an acoustic guitar . After years of making a name for himself in Dallas with the band Rubix Groove, he decided to finally branch out on his own. In 2001, Cabrera went into the studio to record his own independent album, Elm St.
Take It All Away
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.

However, the song was featured for promotion in the series finale of the NBC series Will & Grace, and as the elimination song for the 2007 season of So You Think You Can Dance.
The Moon Under Water due in April 2008
Currently in the studio working on his 3rd album, Ryan Cabrera is hard at work, 7 months into the project, which he feels will be his best work to date. "The sound of the new record I think will open a lot of eyes and ears, and definitely be a surprise to fans and anybody who hasn't heard my music! I want to take my time with this record and really make a diverse entire album, as opposed to just a single or two, no I want a ride, a journey, I want the record to be able to be played all the way through. In fact, there are songs that none of my management or crew have heard. So many things have changed in my life, and the music is heading along with it." (cited from Cabrera's myspace 8/12/07)
"The new album "The Moon Under Water" is quite a different experience than any past record I have ever done!! You will hear a new but familiar sound coming from this album.. I have spent about a year and a half writing and recording what I think is my best work to date! I wanted the album to be a rollercoaster of generes and experiences..i wanted to people and confuse people.. I wanted a high energy, emotional, real album..one that only hearing one song, wouldn't be enough! This is my first album off a major record label, and I decided to keep it that way, by paying for the entire project myself!! Which gave me complete creative freedom! I wanted this project and record to be a personal and honest one which people can feel a part of…haha and nothing to do with stupid hair!!-Ryan"
