about

Ryan Stanbury, creatively known as Ryan the Artkitect, is a Jamaican-American recording artist, composer, and alchemist hailing from northwestern New Jersey. Baptized by the vibrations of sweet Reggae music and raised to the tune of Brooklyn block parties and an eclectic mix of American popular music, Ryan began his musical journey at the age of 7, first on the violin, followed by the trumpet at age 8, and then the drums shortly after. He has performed on stages across the United States, and abroad as a musician and musical director with a colorful array of bands and artists. Ryan’s musical offerings can be heard throughout an ever-expanding catalog of recorded collaborations as an instrumentalist, composer, producer, and mixer via Wilberforce & Annie; his music production company founded in 2021.
