Rybird was raised around electronics and music right from the start. Born into an environment where his father owned his own electronics motor shop, he was tinkering with electrical components from a very early age. His father was also was a musician. Ry was fascinated by the music his father played on acoustic guitar and was taught to play the instrument by his father’s hand. These two facets produced a creative combination of what he knows best…electronics and music, although he wouldn’t have realized this was his true passion at first.
At age 10, he began three years of classical piano instruction, while also continuing acoustic guitar. His interest in music grew fairly eclectic along the way. Some of his early influences were Black Sabbath, the Beatles, Yes and Aerosmith, among other greats. Disco even found a soft spot in his compositions, although he’d rather keep that part a secret, the influences are somewhat evident in some of his music. He longed to own a synthesizer at a time when it was not that easy to find one or financially afford it. So at age 14, he built his own PAIA Gnome from a kit he acquired. He quickly became adept at creating cover songs with guitar, piano and synthesizer.
He went on to study Advanced Electronics and Avionics while enlisted in the Marines, then continued with Mechanical Engineering in multiple Higher learning Institutions to include University. With the continual advances of technology, he has spent the past four years re-dedicating his creative stylings to the synthesizer once again. His home studio is top of the line. Members include: Korg, Mixcraft, Sony, Emu, Intel, Behringer, Wavestation, and Marantz/JBL/Polk surround sound, just to name a few.
He is a member of multiple online social networking and music sites where he creates and shares endless possibilities as the sky is the limit for Rybird. He has spread his wings and is taking flight. He is the hottest and newest creative electronic musician to hit the scene in quite some time. His skills are ingenious and is one to be watched and sought after for movie soundtracks, collaborative backing tracks, product distribution and much more. Yes!
