Rye Randa was born Ryan Mark Randa in Northridge, California to Frank and Tina. He is of Italian-Irish descent and the youngest of three children.

Rye began recording and performing at the young age of 14.

Produced by Charlie Ebersol and Willie Ebersol, the film chronicles Olympic snowboarder and skater Shaun White. It was featured at the X-Dance Film Festival in Park City, and subsequently nominated for Best Original Music Score. The Soundtrack also includes the iTunes single "Life Is Okay" featuring Brooke White of American Idol (2002) Season 7.

With decades of experience, Rye has written, produced and arranged hundreds of songs, cues and score for countless different projects and for major television networks including NBC, CBS, FOX, HBO, USA, TNT, DISCOVERY, ESPN, GSN and HISTORY.
