Ryan Gartner is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Calgary, Alberta. A versatile musician, Gartner has shared the stage with Buckcherry, Thornley, Theory Of A Deadman, and worked with producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down). In recent years, Gartner has taken a deeper look at the stories closest to him and realized there was more he wanted to say. He began writing an intimate collection of very personal songs. Adopting an alt singer-songwriter sound, Gartner teamed with award winning producer Russell Broom and recorded his first full length solo project, White Flag. Released in February 2016, the album explores the sacredness in surrender, weaving messages of hope through tough themes of struggle and transformation. It is sobering and beautiful.
