We say:

Since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, Ryan Prebble has been playing music. Like many, he made his start on a tennis racquet eventually progressing to the guitar. He has captivated small audiences around NZ with his powerful voice and stonking rhythms performing alongside other artists such as ‘The Inkling’ and ‘The Chandeliers’. Previous bands include ‘Dubcheck’, ‘The Pyramid Scheme’ and ‘Spartacus R’. He was a member of the ‘Fly My Pretties’ band, has done session work  with ‘The Black Seeds’, production for ‘Harriet and The Matches’, as well as put his audio engineering studies to good use working in the studio of older brother Wellington record producer Lee Prebble. More recently he helms swampy blues rockers ‘The Nudge’….
