ORBIT Artist Spotlight: Ryan Shepherd
Spotlight by: Nick Lamoureux
Ryan Shepherd’s collaboration with fellow Canadians Loud Luxury, “Fill Me In,” might be the single-most streamed song by any artist on the ORBIT lineup. With 31.5 million streams on Spotify and a #1 spot on the Spotify Global Viral Charts, Ryan Shepherd has gained worldwide notoriety.
The Toronto based deep house producer is one of electronic music’s up-and-coming artists, making a name for himself with his popular tracks and incredible live sets. After starting off as a festival-goer and venturing into the world of event promotion, Ryan finally decided that music production was the right route for him.
Ryan learned how to DJ and produce by locking himself in his room for a year, and he came out with a new passion and considerable skills. In an interview with RX Music, Ryan defines his brand as wanting his listeners to feel cool when listening to his music. More specifically, he says “anybody can listen to it” and the music is always setting the right vibes “whether that be 6pm in a cottage on a dock or 3am at an afterparty.”
Keep an eye out over the remainder of 2020 as Ryan Shepherd plans on dropping a ton of new music. And if his past tracks are any indication on what to expect, we are certainly in for some proper tunes. Be sure to catch his set on our upcoming ORBIT Virtual Experience Benefiting Feeding America set to blast #inORBIT May 8.
