Ryan Clement was among the first employees at Grandma’s Music in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Established by Micky Patten in 1986, the store gained a strong reputation for selling pro audio and digital gear in great volume. Ryan became an expert on programming synthesizers, possessing a knowledge and understanding of MIDI in the very early days, which was greatly appreciated by the store’s customers. When Micky closed the store to retire in 2017, Ryan purchased the name and moved the business online, which continues to this day.
