Ryan Svendsen on SoundBetter

Fast, Easy, Communicative. I layer myself w/ harmonies to build a full section. I can improv or you tell me what you want! Grammy Nominated Trumpet/Flugelhorn artist. Recorded for artists such as Kanye West, Lil Nas X "Industry Baby", Shawn Mendes, Christina Aguilera. I love creating horn lines that will suit your track.

Hi! I'm Ryan.

I am a trumpet, vale trombone and flugelhorn player and the Top Reviewed Trumpet player on Soundbetter! With over 15 years of experience, I am flexible and easy to work with!

HOW IT ALL WORKS... (all my work is one time fee/work for hire)
* Send me the track you want horns on and let me know the BPM with any notes you have.
* I will send you a quote
* If you have specific ideas, melodies, hooks, you can record them or play them on your track, and I will translate them to horns.
* If not, no worries, this is what I excel in!!! I will create my own horn parts and layer them so you have plenty of options to choose from!
* I will send you a link to the stems and a bounce of the track for reference after I record!

I DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR LAYERS. I am happy to do them for the overall quote price so if you want something to sound fuller, just ask! :)

I treat every track like it is my own- with love and care, and I look forward to working with you. I want you to win! Also love to support your track and post about it when you release it.

*PLEASE DO NOT CREDIT MY NAME ON SONGS YOU RELEASE- thank you :)

    Ryan Svendsen is absolutely top-shelf all the way. He brought a whole new dimension to my song "Regret", giving it a deeper mood and insight. This is old-school, old-soul horn work, the type that jumps from the your turntable when it thinks that you are listening late at night, all alone. And his turn-around time is incredibly fast! The man is a genius.

    Thank you, Ryan

    I contacted Ryan to record some trumpet for my track.

    He blew me away with the stems he sent across. He was super fast, but above anything, there is a coolness to his playing that makes mixing them into your track a dream. They have an authenticity that makes them sound like a timeless recording. My track improved massively and he gave me inspiration to improve it further.

    I will definitely be giving him a call when when I need some more.

    Thank you very much Ryan

    I’ve typically only worked with people I know or am connected with. I somehow believed the fallacy that only people I know can understand the heart and soul behind my music. It turns out I couldn’t have been more wrong. Ryan made the perfection additions to my track with his brass. He just gets it! I cannot stress enough that Ryan is as good as it gets, and I trust that he will be the perfect match for your artistic vision, whatever that may be.

    Once again, Ryan was awesome to work with. He put a full horn arrangement together to lift a fuzzy rock song up. He is so full and easy to work with. His playing has a ton of character and really lifts the song. He turned around this most project in < 2 hours. WHAT?!

    This is my second time collaborating with Ryan. After he initially "knocked my socks off" the first time, I once again had the burning desire to work with him again and so I sent him 3 additional songs. There was no need to tell him what what I needed, or what was missing from each song. He just knew... He filled in the missing gaps and added his touch of magic.
    He's a very well rounded musician with a great imagination, and his performance, every time, exceeded my expectations!
