Episode 225: Ryan Cabrera

Ryan Cabrera is an American musician. He began his career as a lead singer for the Dallas band Rubix Groove before pursuing his solo career. Following the 2001 release of independent album Elm St., he released his first major-label album, Take It All Away, on August 17, 2004. Earlier in the year, Cabrera had become known for his up-tempo pop-rock single “On the Way Down”. It was then followed by Cabrera’s second single, “True”; and his third single “40 Kinds of Sadness”. He’s still performing to this day and you’ll hear all about that in this interview. 

I saw him on MTV a lot back in the day so I was super interested to know how the punk scene influenced him and what his lifestyle has been like since he broke out.

I got him on the Skype and this is what we chat about

  • What bands got him into punk music
  • Connecting with Joe Simpson
  • How he would sell himself at meetings with record labels
  • The Ashley Simpson show
  • Butting heads with John Rzeznik during their recording session
  • His TV show Score
  • Getting Punk’d
  • Perez Hilton giving him a lot of shit
  • Changing his sound
  • Being on TRL
  • The Lindsey Lohan story
  • And a ton more

Check him out on the Pop2000 Tour and listen to his latest single PRESCRIPTION OF YOU on Manic Kat Records.

The goal is to inform those out there of how methods show up in day to day so parents can work to find the best fit for their children. (Side note: they have an interview with Jon Tummillo from Folly since who’s a high school teacher).
