NEW YORK (EVLA Records) - A wave of excitement is surrounding E.V.L.A./Atlantic recording artist Ryan Cabrera
as he gets ready for tomorrow's release of his label debut, "TAKE IT ALL AWAY."

The song has bulleted into the top 20 at CHR/Pop radio outlets nationwide. At the same time, the song's companion video is a "Buzzworthy" clip on MTV, where it has been ranking in the top ten on TRL.
Ryan will celebrate the album's release tomorrow with a packed slate of activities in New York City, including: an 8:30 a.m. appearance on Z100's "Z Morning Zoo"; a special lunchtime contest-winners release party at Planet Hollywood, sponsored by Z100 and Samsung; an afternoon in-store album signing at the FYE store at 51st Street & 6th Avenue; visits to MTV's TRL and the Fuse's Daily Download; and capping off with an album release party tomorrow night sponsored by Samsung and Teen People.
In other Cabrera news, he is set to perform "On The Way Down" live on ABC-TV's Good Morning America on Monday, September 6th. He has also gained national television exposure in recent weeks for his role on MTV's reality series, The Ashlee Simpson Show.
The 22-year-old Dallas native is currently drawing unprecedented crowds and bona fide fan hysteria on the Simon DTour Live, a coast-to-coast tour of Simon Malls across America. Cabrera has been gigging relentlessly all year, earning critical acclaim for his supporting appearances with Jessica Simpson and labelmate Jewel (including a sold-out performance at New York City's illustrious Carnegie Hall). He has also played a range of club and college shows, as well as making several appearances as part of Seventeen magazine's Spring Trend Tour.
In the online world, Cabrera has been selected as Launch/Yahoo! Music's September Emerging Artist of the Month, featuring an exclusive in-studio performance and interview. He performed a set for Sessions@AOL, which will go up live this week. As Ryan's popularity explodes, his online street team has been growing byan average of 1,000 new signups each week.
Cabrera has been hailed as one of today's most compelling young artists. "TAKE IT ALL AWAY" sees Ryan teaming up with the Goo Goo Dolls' John Rzeznik, who co-produced the set with Cabrera and inspired him to fully blossom as both a songwriter and performer. In addition to Rzeznik, Ryan joined forces with a variety of today's best tunesmiths, including Sabelle Breer & Curt Frasca (Avril Lavigne, Stacy Orrico), Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue), and Jimmy Harry (Clay Aiken, Kelly Clarkson) & Kara Dioguardi (Celine Dion, Enrique Iglesias).
Driven by infectious and emotional songs such as "True" and "Exit To Exit," "TAKE IT ALL AWAY" marks the arrival of a truly gifted musician and performer.
