Ryan Guldemond

Producer, musician, singer, wordsmith, frontman, storyteller, teacher — some of the many hats worn by Ryan Guldemond whose journey in music began long prior to the inception of Vancouver indie pop/rock outfit Mother Mother, the group he founded in 2005, but it was with the Juno-nominated quintet that Guldemond really cut his teeth as a musical jack-of-all-trades. Helming production and songwriting duties on every one of Mother Mother’s releases to date in addition to his role as its frontman, Guldemond’s meticulous efforts behind the desk and on the floor collectively yielded the group six Top 10 alternative rock singles to date and, most recently, Guldemond’s first Juno nod as producer for the group’s fourth full-length effort The Sticks. The opportunity to steer the creative of his own work was invaluable, and enabled him to further hone his craft on projects by Juno Award winning songstress Hannah Georgas, Juno and Genie Award nominated hip-hop artist Kyprios, 2013 Peak Performance Project winner Rykka (whose Guldemond-produced debut played an integral part in propelling her to the top prize), BC indie rock/pop quartet Rococode, and Calgary avant-pop duo Sidney York. Guldemond has also played the jingle tunesmith for those creative opportunities that reside in the world of advertising; thus far outputting music used in national television ad campaigns for Kraft, Wal-Mart, Sunrype and Wireless Wave. As his list of credits and accomplishments grew and diversified, it didn’t take long for Guldemond to become a sought-after speaker, panelist and mentor in national and regional workshops/competitions targeted to aspiring musicians and songwriters such The Peak Performance Project, CMW’s RadioStar New Songwriter’s Workshop, Vancouver Island Music Business Conference (VIMBC), Science World and the Sarah McLachlan School of Music to name a few. With his growing reputation as a versatile creative collaborator in studio and on stage, Ryan Guldemond continues to come across opportunities to further expand his repertoire, perfect and build on his skillset, all while reaching new levels of commercial and creative achievement in the process
