Ryan Shepard

Label Manager,
Glassnote Records

Toronto, ON, Canada

After many years at Sam The Record Man in Kitchener-Waterloo and pursuing Radio Broadcasting at Humber College; Ryan lucked into covering a maternity contract as a Sales & Promotions Representative with Warner Music Canada. Little did he know then but it was the beginning of an eternity contact with the Canadian music industry.

After many blissful years with Warner, Ryan transitioned to the Promotions department at Universal Music Canada. It was during this six year run where he first started working with Glassnote; Waving the flag high for the label’s roster and helping to break Mumford & Sons, Phoenix and Chvrches in Canada.

A brief detour from label life found him proudly as the Promotions Director for Bell’s Kitchener-Waterloo radio cluster but it was a hat he wouldn’t wear long. When Daniel Glass called to offer him the opportunity to join Glassnote as the company’s Canadian Label Manager he was swayed to return to the world he loved and a roster he adored.

When not shouting from the rooftops that Canadian radio should be playing amazing new Glassnote acts like Aurora and Tor Miller; Ryan can be found surrounded by his life’s other great passion ~ His wonderful wife and two amazing children!
