Balancing his life as a producer/engineer with one as an artist/songwriter, Ryan McCambridge has spent the better part of his life in recording studios. His audio career formally started in post-production and multimedia on Gemini-nominated projects with major networks including Disney, Warner Bros., CBC, and Bravo. In 2017, Ryan won a Telly Award for Sound Design on an animated spot for Rogers Communications.
His musical background has also led him to work on projects with Canadian artists like Metric, Glass Tiger and Jonas & The Massive Attraction, as well as international artists like Birds of Tokyo, Cheshires (Remy Zero) and Harry Connick Jr. and Pentatonix. In a long-standing collaboration with Grammy-winning producer David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Muse), Ryan was assistant producer and engineer on the recent Rush R40 Live concert album/DVD and launched a solo project called A Calmer Collision. Working alongside writer/producer Erik Alcock (Kanye West, Eminem, Pink), the pair have also been developing Arden, a prodigious female singer from LA, who recently released her first single, “Living Memories”.
With a commitment to empowering other artists and up-and-coming audio engineers, Ryan has taught many workshops, is a part-time instructor at Ryerson University and contributes to many audio publications, including Sound On Sound, Audio Media International, Audio Pro International, Professional Sound and Canadian Musician.
