Ryan Courtney on SoundBetter

I am an Alt/Pop artist living in Nashville TN. I've been in and out studios doing vocal work for over 15 years. I can bring the emotion your song needs. My songs and voice have appeared in various television shows on MTV, ABC, and UPtv. I'm looking to expand and work with more creative people like yourself. I can't wait to elevate your track!

My philosophy is that you can be a great technical singer, but without conviction, the right emotions won't shine through. I can offer you both. My influences range from Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen, to Harry Nilsson. My voice often has been compared to the likes of Coldplay, Ryan Tedder, and Brandon Flowers (The Killers). I also have a deep appreciation for well produced, well written pop music.

I've been producing, audio engineering, and mixing for years. So I can get high quality vocal tracks/ stems to you in a timely manner.
All of the audio samples on this page were performed, recorded, and produced by me in my home studio.

Looking forward to hearing about your vision. Hit the green button above and lets get to work.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Working with Ryan is a stellar experience. His performance was so natural, with deep and powerful conviction. Amazingly fast yet complete, thorough and he succeeded in elevating my song to top shelf quality. Will love to work with Ryan again.

    I've written hundreds of songs over 40 years and Ryan Courtney is hands down the finest male vocalist I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Immensely gifted with a God-sent range from deep, almost gravely-sexy speech-level lows to wispy-teflon falsettos that never fail to bring chills.

    Combine this with a southern gentleman's willingness to work until he absolutely command YOUR melody while adding his own brilliant vocal stylings, Ryan is simple the best male singer on Soundbetter.

    I provided Ryan with an instrumental track and general idea of what I was looking for with respect to topline and lyrics. He came back with a fantastic melody, poignant lyrics and a perfect vocal performance in the timeline we agreed to.

    Not only does Ryan have an excellent voice, his delivery/formatting of the material is the most professional I've encountered. Ryan truly understands what a producer looks for in order to make the mixing process easier, and is highly receptive to the feedback in order to ensure that your vision is accomplished. Thank you, Ryan, for such a pleasant and professional interaction! I look forward to working with you again!

    I've worked with Ryan a handful of times now and always walk away more impressed than the last time. He's a pro's-pro in every aspect of his work. Stellar communication, nails the mood and performance of each song, brings his own creative point of view and unique style to each track and delivers the cleanest, best prepped tracks I've seen here. Highly recommend working with him across all project types if you want to elevate your music to something beyond your own expectations.

    Ryan has been absolutely amazing to work with! He put in so much additional effort beyond my expectations to make the track sound as good as possible.

    He helped me with not only the lead Vocals but also BGV's, extra vocal stacks, etc. and really made the song come to life.

    Ryan has a great vocal range and could hit the high notes perfectly, as well as including some really good harmonies. He asked exactly what I was looking for, and was fantastic to work with. Highly recommended.

    Ryan!! Super talent! We are from Australia and we gave Ryan a task n half with the vocals which he nailed. His knowledge, professionalism and background made Ryan so easy to work with ... so supportive, delivered so many extras and options in the sessions, he looked after us something which is so rare these days and finishing well before the deadline. .. Thank you Ryan .. If you are ever down under mate look us up as we would love to shout you a drink.

    Ryan is a gem! Very thorough in his communications, planning and expectation setting. Sonically he nailed the tone, mood, lyrics and execution way beyond what I thought he would deliver. An exceptional talent who is a dream to work with. Highly highly recommend.

    Incredibly beautiful, thoughtful and dignified performance Ryan did on the song: "The Best I've Ever Been" I wrote my dying brother. Excellent and professional in every way! Can not recommend Ryan enough to anyone looking for a singer with a, in the words of one critic: "hauntingly mesmerizing voice"!! Will hire Ryan again!!!

    Ryan is such a great guy to work with. His talent is undeniable and his voice has so much character and emotion. I've worked with him on multiple projects and his level of artistry has been top notch every time. He's very easy going and a great energy for any project!

    Ryan has a killer voice. One of the hardest working guys in Nashville. He will put his own signature sound on your song, while still leaving it commercially viable. I highly recommend working with him on your next track!

    Ryan has an amazing voice and is a real pro in the studio. I hired him to help sing and topline on two songs and his voice set the tone for the project. Hire this guy!
