CARL RYDEN (Producer / Songwriter / Musician)
Swedish talent Carl Ryden is certainly making his mark in the music industry as a producer & songwriter!
Growing up in a vast musical community in Scandinavia and media drenched in American culture a young Ryden embraced his surroundings by first mastering the electric guitar and broadening his passion for music.
Nostalgically he reflects on his childhood of Ponytails, Metallica, Frank Zappa and his love of Jazz and Funk. “There was nothing more important to me than being able to really hear music and create music that was truly memorable”. Fuelled by the success and critical acclaim of his peers, Carl’s writing style, chords and melodies would fast become his signature trademark. Ryden explains his production/writing style simply as “Two wrongs can make a right, but two rights can also make a wrong, great ideas are random.”
Already a chart toping producer/writer throughout Europe and now working with all the right pop writers both in Europe and US he has a string of hits under his belt with artists such as; top ten chart princesses Booty Luv (Majority of the album + singles, no. 11 official UK album chart + 4 official top 10 singles incl. Some Kind of Rush), Danish Music Awards Nominated NABIHA (all album incl. all hit/top 10 singles, right now with a release commitment in more than 20 countries) Poker Pets (singles) and TYKEN (singles) as well as writing and guitar work for David Guetta’s album “Pop Life’ including the hit songs; Delirious, You Are Not Alone and Baby When The Lights Go Out, Sunfreakz hit single; ‘Counting down the days’, Phonjaxx ft Cozi which went top 5 on the Billboard Dance Chart, Sucker which was a Buzz Chart no. 1 + New Essential Tune. His signature sound of International pop, dance and soul is creating a storm across the industry. Carl’s incredible talent and professional attitude has secured him a spot as a chosen favourite writer/producer amongst the labels; (Universal Island, SyCo, Positiva, EMI, Virgin, Ministry of Sound, Geffen, Def Jam).
