    I’ve worked with Jake on a few different solo projects and he always comes through with the highest caliber of hi-fi ear candy mixes. He’s the real deal and a master in the studio. I’d give him 6 stars if I could ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

    I remember the first time my band Modern Adventures went to record with Jake. The best experience ever and the song ended up just how we wanted it and more. He really cares about your songs. It has single handily been the best thing for our music. We took the songs we have written and made them into full form through him. Jake Rye is the person I ALWAYS recommend to people. He simply is the best.
