BIO

Ryan Stewart is a multi-platinum, Juno award winning producer / song writer and multi instrumentalist. He has written and produced numerous #1 and top 10, gold and platinum singles and albums with artists like Carly Rae Jepsen, Hedley, Simple Plan, Owl City, Victoria Duffield, Andrew Allen, Tyler Shaw, and more.

Equally skilled at writing toplines, making beats, recording almost any instrument, producing final tracks, and working with both established and developing artists, Ryan is obsessed with the art and craft of making records, and always finds a way to pull out the best in the songs he works on and the artists he works with.

Ryan works out of his studio The WineCellar in Vancouver.
