Ryan Tedder is one of the founders of the band OneRepublic. Their single, “Apologize,” was one of the best-selling and charting singles of the ’00s, and broke several SoundScan records, including being the most-played song for five months straight until it was unseated by Leona Lewis’s song “Bleeding Love,” which Tedder co-wrote. He has since become a wildly successful co-writer and producer, working with a who’s who of the modern pop charts. A short list of artists he has worked with includes the Backstreet Boys, Chris Cornell, Ashley Tisdale, Ludacris, Lupe Fiasco, Hilary Duff, Timbaland, Bubba Sparxxx, Clay Aiken, Jennifer Hudson, Natasha Bedingfield, Whitney Houston, Rihanna, Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rascal Flatts, James Blunt, and Nelly Furtado.
