News: OneRepublic goes gold, and frontman Ryan Tedder builds an army of songwriters/producers in DenverBy Ricardo Baca | January 21st, 2010 | 7 comments
“I do have an active record label through Interscope Records, Patriot Records,” Tedder, the frontman for OneRepublic, said from Cologne, Germany last week. “And I’m excited about finding new talent, but aside from OneRepublic, my main focus now is finding and developing new songwriters and producers through Patriot Games Publishing, which has been up and running for about nine months.
“I have four writers signed now, two of whom are from Colorado. And so far my writers have gotten songs placed with Kelly Clarkson, Natasha Bedingfield, OneRepublic, Miley Cyrus and others.”
The site has pictures of Tedder with some of the artists he’s worked with — Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Adam Lambert included. Tedder, nominated for two big Grammys on Jan. 31, was also happy to note that OneRepublic’s “All the Right Moves” single went Gold last week. Tedder and his band will play twice at the Winter Olympics, including a “Today” show performance.
