Ryan Ricks is an emerging film and television composer living in Los Angeles. He’s composed original music for feature films, short films and web-series including a 3 episode mini-series,Tinderin’ Foster, starring VH1’s Barely Famous Erin Foster.


Ryan’s music can be heard on major networks such as Travel Channel, NBC Sports Network, Spike TV and others.


Before working as a composer, Ryan worked as music director and foley artist at the multiple Emmy Award winning Bad Animals (Portal 2Laggies, National Geographic Channel’s Alaska State Troopers).




I’ve worked with Ryan multiple times, and it is always a pleasure. Ryan was able to work with my limited budget and develop something that sounded much bigger than one would expect given our limitations. I was amazed at his adeptness to incorporate the styles of some of my favorite composers while still making the music his own. I highly recommend Ryan and believe his skills and expertise will take him to high places.

The score Ryan wrote immediately gives the audience the time and place, creating an audio landscape that really brought the story to life. Having Ryan score One More Round made our film so much better…he’s a creative force to be reckoned with.
