The last time we spoke with Ryan Tedder in 2013, we introduced him by saying perhaps no one was having a greater influence on the sound of modern pop music than him. More than three years later, that reputation has only strengthened. A leading producer and songwriter for the boldest names in music, the Grammy-winning Tedder is also frontman for the group OneRepublic, which just released its new album, Oh My My. And if you think this album marks new terrain for the band, Tedder would probably agree.

Few, if any, people have more influence of the sound of popular music today as Ryan Tedder, a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. And as the frontman for OneRepublic, Tedder has helmed the genre-bending, Colorado-based band for more than a decade, enjoying platinum sales and a 2009 Grammy nomination as the band rose from MySpace to MTV and beyond.
