Ryan Wines

Co-founder and Managing Partner of Marmoset Music, Ryan Wines has worked on both the agency side and the client side of the of advertising world, while simultaneously pursuing adventures in music. An Oregon native, in less than two years Ryan has turned a random idea between two guys in a coffee shop into a rocketing music agency, shepherding a growing conduit between Portland's indie music community and Madison Avenue. During Marmoset's brief history, they've scored original music for commercials in the past two Super Bowls, regularly work with the top creative agencies on the planet, and have cultivated a unique community of uber-talented, hard working, blue collar artists.

Ryan got his first taste of the music biz as a college radio DJ at his alma mater, Southern Oregon University, where he played the entire Beastie Boys catalog, almost exclusively. He's advised and consulted a diverse roster of artists and served as Label Manager for The Dandy Warhol's label, Beat The World Records.

At Marmoset Ryan's focus includes leading the agency's creative strategy, producing, overseeing all music supervision and music licensing endeavors, client management, and he plays a mean game of foosball.

In his free time, Ryan puts out records via his boutique record label, Timber Carnival Recordings, and enjoys spending time with his baby girl, Eleanor.
