Ryan Martinie

Ryan Martinie

 

Description

Ryan Martinie is a Grammy-nominated, world- renowned bassist best known for his complex and unique playing style. He has been at the forefront of rock bass guitar innovation since the late 1990's and his stunning technical abilities and anomalous style are well documented in performance and recording with the heavyweight band, Mudvayne. Ryan's style continues to influence bassists all over the world.

"I have always been drawn to the taboo, " Martinie says. "I've always been one to go exploring when there are things to be heard."

Ryan grew up in central Illinois where, as a child, he was often found playing his uncle's coronet or his dad's guitar. His family noticed his talent at a young age and certainly encouraged his pursuit of music by exposing him to a plethora of genres from the big band jazz on his grandfather's radio to his father's forbidden album collection, which included Jimi Hendrix, The Doobie Brothers and The Beach Boys. One of Ryan's most vivid memories of exciting musical discoveries was when he dropped the needle on an album and heard the first notes of The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "The Wind Cries Mary." (insert quote what made this vivid?) His family's involvement in their church also exposed Ryan to a variety of music from hymns to orchestral music and other forms of non-secular music, which gave him the opportunity to perform at a very young age.

While Ryan had a knack with any instrument he picked up; he became a distinguished trumpet player and vocalist in middle and high school; but it became apparent that his real talent would emerge on the bass guitar. At 11 years old, Martinie got his first bass, a red Fender Squier and began teaching himself to play by listening to albums such as Metallica's "Kill 'Em All"; Iron Maiden's "Caught from Somwhere in Time"; and Rush's "Hemispheres". For Ryan's 16th birthday, his father gave him the choice between a car and a new bass guitar; he chose the bass - an Ibanez Soundgear five-string. The rest is history.

With his Ibanez in tow, Ryan launched into performing with local rock bands starting with an 80's rock cover band called Poor House. A more creative opportunity arose when he joined Broken Alter; a sort of exploratory metal outfit that really allowed him to spread his wings and hone his own style. As fate would have it, Broken Alter played the Red Dog Saloon in Bloomington, IL; opening for a relatively unknown Mudvayne, who had just finished writing their first record, "Kill, I Oughtta".

About a year later, while working at a restaurant in Galesburg, IL, Ryan and a couple of his coworkers served up a band called Fully Cooked. Meanwhile, Mudvayne had earned much local acclaim; but the founding members of Mudvayne founds themselves without a bass player and asked Ryan to join. With the addition of Martinie to the line-up, the band's unique sound was solidified, and it's 2000 debut record, L.D. 50 launched the band into hard rock history. Mudvayne's first single, "Dig" was a rock chart-topper and won the first ever MTV2 Video Music Award. Their subsequent singles, "Death Blooms" and "Nothing to Gain" paved the way for the album to sell over 500, 000 copies in its first 4 months of release.

Mudvayne currently holds 4 RIAA Gold Album certifications; for their first 3 albums and one for their live DVD, (L)ive (D)osage. In a little over a decade, the band has sold over 6 million units worldwide, and performed on club, arena and festival stages for more than 1 million fans.
