Ryan Hewitt - Producer - Engineer - Mixer

Ryan Hewitt is a Grammy winning engineer, mixer and producer with a credit list spanning all popular genres of music for such notable artists as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers, blink-182, The Dixie Chicks, needtobreathe, Flogging Molly and Jamie Cullum.

Relocating from Los Angeles to Nashville in early 2015, Ryan took residence at House of Blues Studios in Berry Hill and jumped into a non-stop string of records.  In between mixing albums for The Avett Brothers, Third Eye Blind, Sean McConnell, and Harry Connick, Jr., Ryan produced and mixed up-and-coming Georgia rockers, Crass Mammoth, Knoxville troubadours, The Black Lillies and Nashville mods Elle Macho.  He spent last summer recording and mixing The Lumineers’ #1 album Cleopatra with producer Simone Felice in upstate New York and has since recorded and mixed several more songs for film soundtracks.

Ryan found his love for music and recording working along side his father, famed remote recording engineer David Hewitt.  Traveling around the world recording live albums and providing broadcast audio for an incredible array of artists, Ryan spent his youth in small clubs, massive arenas and every type of venue in between.  As a result of these experiences, he developed a work ethic and preparedness seldom seen among studio recording engineers because on the road, there’s only one chance to get it right.

After earning a degree in Electrical Engineering and running the campus sound company at Tufts University in Boston, Ryan moved to New York City to work at Sony Music Studios.  Opportunities then took Ryan to Los Angeles, landing him at Cello Studios (now EastWest Studios), where he began working with The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rick Rubin.  Striking up a close working relationship with guitarist John Frusciante, Ryan recorded and mixed eight solo albums with him. This led to Ryan engineering and mixing the Peppers’ multiple-Grammy-winning double album, Stadium Arcadium.  Rick and Ryan have continued to work together on a number of projects with artists such as Angus and Julia Stone, Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga and Johnny Cash, as well as three albums and three live DVDs for The Avett Brothers.
