Zak Ryan on SoundBetter

I have a degree in Jazz Performance from Bowling Green State University. I am versatile in many styles. Throughout my 19 years of playing, I've performed and recorded with several groups varying from rock to hip hop to jazz. I currently work at Disneyland and sub for Saved By The 90s.

When you hire me for your session or live show, whether it be one song/one show or an entire album/several shows, I will give you the utmost professionalism. In the studio, I will be completely focused on your song(s) and will not waste time during the recording process. I will do my best to give you the product and drum sound you want for your project. I'm very flexible when it comes to suggestions. Instinctively, I do what's best for the music. I want your product to be the best it can possibly be. In a live setting, I will always be on time and be prepared. I do not have my own studio, but am willing to drive to record at your home studio or an established recording studio.

    I had a phenomenal experience working with Zak! He is musical, thoughtful, reliable, and attuned to detail. He listens to and interacts with what's happening around him on stage and provides a solid foundation for developing a tune organically. As a bassist I highly recommend Zak as an addition to your rhythm section. He is nothing but professional and adapts well to venue specific needs. He seamlessly covers for unexpected changes to the form and is truly a blast to have around
