Ryan Calder started playing music in high school, as a drummer, believe it or not. Guitar and vocals came later as he plied his wares through university. During this time, he penned and recorded his debut album, Better Days. In 2007, Ryan performed for the third time at Splashy Fen, but now under the conspicuous pseudonym of the “Ryan Calder Band” with band mates. In 2010, his second album, On The Edge, made its way to the marketplace. In 2011, Ryan won an International Songwriting Competition and traveled to Barcelona, Spain to attend the Future Music Forum. All the major label representatives were there to talk about where the industry was heading. Today, Ryan continues to perform in theatre, at house concerts and various other events, and is a well-known figure in the KZN Midlands music scene. Check Ryan out on Youtube:
