Radio-Ready Quality Pop Production with Retro Vibes.
Hi, I'm a Pop/R&B producer, and I specialize in retro-influeced tracks. I have an affinity for the classic sounds of the '60s, '70s & '80s. Analog synths, funky guitars, and heavy grooves characterize my sound.
I produce tracks for artists from the ground up. I discuss the artist's vision to produce a professional track that they can sell and use to build their fanbase. Some artists need instrumental tracks to write songs to. I'm continuously creating instrumental tracks that I sell.
I also do a lot of mixing for other producers and musicians. Many musicians are able to record their projects at home but do not have mixing expertise. That's where I come in.
My production process is easy. Just send me a demo of your song, and I will build a track. The demo can be recorded on anything, even your phone. After I get a general idea for the track, I'll send you a verse/chorus for your approval. If you like it, we can move forward, and I'll finish the track. If not, we'll change it before moving forward.
I have worked with many independent artists locally and online and would love to talk about your project. Thanks for checking out my page!

This is the producer you want!! Ryan is such a very talented and gifted producer! He can do it all!! He gets it. He hears your input of where you want the song to go and feel, and gives it just what it needs. I'll be working with him more in the future for sure!
I've worked with Ryan Prewett on multiple projects over the years and he's really got an ear for funky R&B feels, and he's stepping into the world of pop too. Not to mention, he's just a great guy! He's one that you want to get the right sound. 5 stars, baby.
Interview with Ryan Prewett
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Who are your favorite artists? What goals do you have for your music?
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For production, a client will send me a demo of a song, and I will build a track. I will usually send the client a verse and chorus when I get the general idea down to get their approval. If they are happy with it, I will finish the track. For mixing, artists upload their tracks to Dropbox or another online storage site and send me the link.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I've been producing new Pop records for Levi Ray and Salina Solomon and an R&B record for Chris Hatfield. I've also been mixing records for other producers of several different genres. I even mixed a Jazz record this week!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital! I have some favorite outboard preamps that I use when tracking, but I do all of my mixing in the box. Working digitally allows me to get work done faster for my clients and do quick revisions. I use UAD plug-ins for a large part of my mixing. They sound so much like analog gear.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I studied music and recording in college. I graduated in 2010 and have been producing and mixing since.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: The Roots! The Roots merge so many styles and have been a big influence on my for many years.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overproduce. Make sure everything that you add to a song has a purpose and isn't there just to be there.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'm most passionate about Pop and R&B music, and those are the genres I work in most. Being in Nashville, I also work on some Country and Americana music. It's nice to change things up and work in different genres.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My workstation consists of an iMac quad core hooked up to an Apollo 8 thunderbolt interface. Over the last few years I have collected my favorite pieces of outboard gear. I have 6 API preamps, a BAE 1073 and a UA LA-610. My favorite microphones are my Mojave MA-200 and my Royer 101.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Greg Kurstin, The Struts, Max Martin, Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo, The Roots, Dave Pensado
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly, I produce tracks from the ground up. Clients send me a demo of a song, and I produce the track. I also make instrumental tracks that clients buy to write lyrics to. This is called top-lining. I also do a lot of mixing for other producers.
