Busbee songwriter and producer passes away
Michael James Ryan passes away at 43.
The music industry has lost a celebrated songwriter and producer Michael James Ryan. Professionally, called as Busbee. He had worked with many A-listers artists such as Gwen Stefani, Lauren Alaina, Gavin DeGraw, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lady Antebellum, Adam Lambert, Kieth Urban, Rascal Flatts, Maren Morris and Shakira. The list is endless.
“Our hearts are broken by the loss of our beautiful friend busbee. He was an extraordinary human being whose generosity, spirituality and humor inspired everyone around him. An amazingly gifted songwriter, he used his talent, his music, and his love to break down boundaries and bring people together. He left us far too soon. Our deepest condolences go to his wonderful family and all his many friends. We love you.” Warner Chappell Music had said.
Busbee had began playing music at a young age. In a rolling stone interview he told about himself, “I’m from California and used to play jazz trombone,” he said, in 2016.”I woke up a certain amount of years later, and I have an amazing wife and two beautiful girls, and I get to write songs for a living? I’m like, whose life did I hijack?” he couldn’t believe that he had finally fulfilled his dream.
Ross Golan, a producer and songwriter wrote on twitter that his late friend had been diagnosed with brain cancer and that he couldn’t understand why busbee hadn’t responded to his text that day as they use to text each other every day.
It is said that he passed away on Sunday night. In many reports, it is stated that he was suffering from glioblastoma a few months ago. On the news of his death, many people, artists and celebrities paid their condolences to him on their social media.
They are making great music in heaven tonight. I’m going to miss you busbee. Music will miss you too ?
