Ryan Sawyer (composer/musician) (b.1976, San Antonio, TX) started playing drums at the age of 11.

Spencer Yeh), Boredoms, Meshell Ndegeocello, Cass McCombs, Thurston Moore, Trevor Dunn's Proofreaders, Matana Roberts, IIII (Hisham Bharoocha, Ben Vida, Brian Chase), Man Forever, Rhys Chatham, Susan Alcorn amongst many more. Most recently he has been touring his solo project record One Day Your Heart Will Be Your Skin
