Ryan is always a pleasure to work with AND he delivers top-notch, professional results. Highly reachable and communicative, Ryan is capable of delivering just about anything in any genre: vocals with a wide range of styles and he plays every instrument, which is a huge bonus. Add to that a capable and current studio engineer, wrap it all into one, and you found yourself a one-man wrecking crew.
I am a professional artist living in Tokyo, Japan. I found Ryan via the American Voice. I fell in love with his voice instantly!! Ryan went above & beyond creating the perfect part for my song. Supa soulful but has all the vocal chops and then some. Ryan is also a multi-instrumentalist so he understands how everything sits in a song and co-exists....this makes a huge difference to the delivery of a hook or the meaning of a lyric. Ryan is always way ahead of schedule and delivers in spades!! I
I honestly have the biggest smile on my face right now. I came to Ryan asking for a professional-sounding recording, instead I got a freakin' masterpiece! If you have any doubt in your mind on whether or not to choose Ryan to do your music production, all I can say is that you won't be disappointed. He absolutely went above and beyond with my song and I know he will with your song too. Thanks Ryan!
Prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with.
Ryan is amazing! Beyond impressive work that took my whole song to a new level. Golden vocal range, super versatile, perfect understanding, great communication, speedy fast turnaround time. Much love!

It was an amazing experience working with TruNorth Studio, very high quality song to work with! I'm looking forward to work with them again.
I have worked with TruNorth on several occasions and he goes above and beyond my expectations every single time. TruNorth really cares about the artists he works with and you can really see his passion for the art form in his work. He has a ton of experience and you can tell he really strives for the best results with each project he works on. He offers great and honest advice, and all his services come at a very affordable price. Choose to work with TruNorth and you won't regret it!
Wow Ryan is so fast, we gave him a song demo. We are a country band from Tuscon AZ and he made us sound like a bonafide authentic Nashville recording! After he delivered the order he also helped us with the artwork and gave us pointers on duplication and the post album process! We will be back!
Ok so I am a mere small town Thunder Bay songwriter and I was on the hunt for an online studio that could take my kinda half @ss'd song and make it better! Well I think my jaw is permanently on the floor. Gave Ryan my demo and it wasn't that flattering and he then played guitars, bas, keys and sang BGV and not only helped me by making a guide vocal of re singing it, well i sucked it up and tried it his way and I cannot stop smiling. He created a iTunes ready single and I am so proud!
I live on the East Coast. I'm not from the South. I gave him a challenge to see if he could make me the song like it was recorded in Nashville. Ryan/TruNorth found a female vocalist, created a duet, and put the whole thing together, arranged it, and wow. 10/10
I am very happy with my song this man delivered and it was pretty much instantaneously. I knew from listening to his songs he sang Country and I wanted him to put his own flare on it. His vocals and range were amazingly creative. The music is spot on to my liking and I’m thrilled to have chosen the perfect song for him to do! Thanks a million! I will definitely be sharing it with everyone and telling them if they need a Studio TruNorth is the one they need to get in touch with!
Working with Ryan was a true pleasure. He was able to understand the sound that I was hoping to achieve and translate it into the real world. He enlisted the help of another very talented singer to work on my duet and her vocals were 100% professional level just like his. My advice to you is that, if you have a song that you are working on, leave as much of it to Ryan as possible because the results that he achieved with me far surpassed the material that I had already recorded. Awesome!
Very impressed with the lightning fast turn around time and the quality of the song and sound. I sent a description and a few video examples of what I needed with no lyrics or music and he was able to create exactly what I wanted in literally hours, not even a whole day. This song could be a radio hit, it’s so good. I will definitely order from this artist again due to his intuitive ability to create what I wanted and the amazing vocals and clear recording sound. Very talented and fast!
