Ryan Benjamin Tedder (born June 26, 1979) is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. As well as being the lead vocalist for the pop rock band OneRepublic, he has an independent career as a songwriter and producer for various artists, including Madonna, U2, Adele, Beyoncé, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Lopez, Westlife, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Leona Lewis, and MØ.
Work with AdeleEdit
Tedder wrote two of the songs off of Adele's album 21—"Rumour Has It" and "Turning Tables," the former of which he is responsible for producing as well. The songs were released as the album's fourth and fifth single, respectively.
He co-wrote "Rumour Has It" with Adele, while also contributing to its production and mixing. He worked on the song's programming and arrangement as well. Tom Elmhirst and Dan Parry worked with him on the track as a mixer and assistant, respectively. Tedder also co-wrote "Turning Tables" with Adele; however, it was produced by Jim Abbiss rather than Tedder. Tedder showed up to the studio four hours early to work on the song and ended up describing a conflict between Adele and her ex-boyfriend perfectly without even discussing it at all.
Adele later recruited Tedder for her third studio album, 25. Although they wrote several songs together from 2013 to 2015, the final track listing for the album only included one collaboration between the two, a song titled "Remedy."
