Early Life


Dayton Thomas Ricketts was born on June 9th 1990 to Tanis and Murray Ricketts. He spent all of his teen years in a small town called Lumby in British Columbia, Canada where the population is around 1700. He Graduated in 2008 from Charles Bloom High School. After high school graduation Dayton took a year off to work and save up to move to the city to further pursue his interests in music, film and entertainment. He completed the Web Design & Interactive Media program at a Vancouver based art school in 2011. His passion for digital media kept pulling him further. It wasn't long before Ricketts was signed with a background performing agency for TV & film in 2009 in hopes of broadening his views on the world of media production and performing.

Dayton continued to participate in background and principle work for film, TV & commercials for the remainder of his stay in Vancouver. Dayton worked on shows such as Nickelodeon's The Troop, Disney Channels Geek Charming and Smallville to name a few. Ricketts has since moved back to the Okanagan where he continues to follow his path to becoming a successful musician. Dayton has big plans for his future. This is just the beginning for him. He may look like a city boy, but he is surely a country boy at heart. He can't get enough of the outdoors. He loves riding his quad, going camping and spending quality time with family and friends. Ricketts said, "I will always come back to Lumby! It's a great place to live, raise a family and you should never forget about the places and people that made you."


Even though Dayton develops most of his online content himself he is currently working with many up and coming producers to create a more polished look. Recently dropping a few singles and music videos on iTunes and VEVO, Dayton has a few exciting projects yet to hit the digital highway.
