Ryan Tedder is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. As well as being the lead vocalist of the pop rock band OneRepublic, he has an independent career as a songwriter and producer for various artists, including Adele, Anitta, Backstreet Boys, Beyoncé, Big Time Rush, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran, Foster the People, Hailee Steinfeld, Hilary Duff, Jennifer Lopez, Jonas Brothers, Jordin Sparks, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Lil Nas X, Logic, Maroon 5, MØ, One Direction, Paul McCartney, Pink, Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, Taylor Swift, U2, Westlife, and Zedd.
Tedder's production and songwriting work has proven commercially successful. "Apologize", performed by his band OneRepublic, "Bleeding Love", performed by Leona Lewis, and "Halo", performed by Beyoncé, all made it to the list of best-selling singles of all time. In early 2014, Billboard named him "The Undercover King of Pop" and featured him on the magazine's cover. He is one of the producers on the reality show Songland. He is a three-time recipient of the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, due to his production credits on Adele's albums 21 and 25, and Taylor Swift's 1989.
His latest endeavor is a beverage called Mad Tasty--an all natural, hydrating, restorative water beverage with zero sugar, no calories and 20MG of hemp-extract with a flavor that’s shockingly good. I’ve tasted it.
This space is one of the most competitive CPG categories with the lowest success rate. And yet Ryan's charging hard again into what may seem like insurmountable odds to some, but for Ryan, it’s another chance to prove the nay-sayers wrong.
