When Ryan Farish uploaded his music to mp3.com a little over 3 years ago, he had no idea that the fan base and listeners he would attract would one day turn his love of music into a full time professional career, eventually leading his music into products from some of the world's most prominent companies such as IBM, The Weather Channel, COX Communications, Amazon.com, and Sun Microsystems to name a few.
The results have been phenomenal. Creating a portfolio of electronic and ambient music, Ryan built a presence for himself online at MP3.com. His trademark sound earned a loyal following and immediately something started to happen. ÂMy plays just went through the roof,Â Ryan says. ÂI remember the first day I was online. I was so excited to have just a couple of plays, but within months, I was getting thousands a day.Â Songs like ÂNightwindÂ and ÂSecret GardenÂ shot into the Top 40 of their genre, and both remain chart-topping mainstays over two years later. Currently as of this writing, over 40 of Ryan's songs uploaded to his site on mp3.com are charting in the top 40 of their genre, and most are in the top five. With fans in over a hundred nations playing his music daily, Ryan has garnered over 1.4 million downloads in less than two years. In addition to the tremendous listens Ryan Recieves daily from his web site (http://www.mp3.com/ryanfarish), Ryan's tracks are streamed via TruSonic into over 1500 businesses across the US, every day!
RyanÂs success hasn't ended on MP3.com. The high visibility of his presence on the Internet landed him a barrage of licensing deals with corporate clients and small businesses. A list of those companies could easily be mistaken for the Fortune 500 with names like Sun Microsystems, Amazon, IBM, COX Communications and The Weather Channel clamoring to get a piece of the action.
About the same time fans were uncovering RyanÂs music on MP3.com, someone at The Weather Channel was making a similar discovery. The worldÂs best-known cable station began playing his tracks on their popular segment ÂThe Local ForecastÂ. They loved his vibe so much theyÂve kept him in the rotation for over two years, and last year, they contacted him for a special job. The Weather Channel was set to unveil a brand new series titled ÂStorm StoriesÂ, and they wanted to know if Ryan would score the theme song. ÂIt was a great challenge,Â Ryan says. ÂMatching a short segment of music to an eight-second visual intro.Â The Weather Channel loved it, and ÂStorm StoriesÂ premiered worldwide on January 6th of this year, and currently airs M-F 8-9 and 11-12 on The Weather Channel. The weather channel also recently commissioned Ryan to create their custom logo for "Notify!", a service which brings breaking weather alerts to your cell phone or home. This past February, Ryan completed sixteen original tracks for a new IBM iTVD product, and is currently wrapping up 5 new commercials for Cox Communications. Grip Video (CA) this week licensed over 10 tracks of Ryan's for their third installment of the custom sports car imports DVD series, which will be stocked on the shelves of retail giants Circuit City, Sam Goody, Best Buy, etc. .for those who will want to check out this exciting series.
With all his success as a recording artist, Ryan says the best part is being able to do what he loves day in and day out. ÂI love creating music,Â he says. ÂBringing people into an emotional experience through music. Ryan's label Worldtrax Music soon plans to roll out Ryan's third release in the electronic mood music genre, "Traveling". This new album contains many of Ryan's most well know tracks. Currently many of Ryan's tracks may be downloaded at http://www.ryanfarish.com. More Info at:
