producer/songwriter&mix/master

Ryan Maker on SoundBetter

I am a songwriter/producer, mixing/mastering engineer, as well as a multi-instrumentalist and singer. I have been making music for as long as I can remember and will continue until my time is up. I have a lot to offer for those who are just getting started as well as those veterans who are in need of creative and professional assistance. Hit me up!

I'm essentially a one stop shop. I have been a musician my entire life. Singing for as long as I can remember, and early on learned piano, guitar, bass, drums, synthesizer, mandolin, etc. And I have a home studio to record anything that you might need.
Since very early on I was writing my own songs and by the time I was in high school I was recording my friends and my own music at home. In college, I studied music composition and recording arts at Chico State, and I was a touring musician with my home base in Nashville TN and now Los Angeles Ca.
Since moving to Los Angeles I have started touring less and focused my efforts on producing other artists. I do a wide variety of genres. From EDM and hip hop, to country and blues, though my passion lies in the rock and pop world. You can visit my website www.ryanmakermusic.com to hear some of the artists I've produced recently.

If you are in need of a producer/cowriter to help finish your ideas, I'm your guy.
If you have already recorded a song or album and need someone to put that final mix together, I'm your guy.
If your mix is finished, and you need that final polish and heat from a proper master, I'm your guy.
If you need a home cooked meal but have dietary restrictions, I'm not your guy, but I might know someone. Eat healthy ya'll.

Contact me! I'd love to hear how I can help you!

  14. A: I mostly produce and mix the song i produce for artists. Sometimes this involves co-writing the song from scratch or helping finish an idea an artist already has.
