Ryan Hewitt is a Grammy-winning engineer, mixer, and producer for artists such as The Avett Brothers.
Ryan began his musical career by taking up drums and piano in the third grade, and set up his first primitive bedroom recording studio at age ten. His interest in recording prompted his father, remote recording engineer David Hewitt, to take him on the road at age twelve. Over the course of 15 years on the Remote Recording Services trucks, Ryan learned to get sessions going quickly, pay attention to details, and capture the moment on tape at all costs.
After receiving a degree in electrical engineering from Tufts University, Ryan moved to New York City to take a job at Sony Music Studios. Once there, he quickly moved up the ranks to assist and learn from some of the best engineers and producers in the business. Moving to Los Angeles in 2000, Ryan landed at Cello Studios, again moving to the head of the class and ultimately cultivating a long-term working relationship with Rick Rubin in the process.
Currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee and working out of the legendary House of Blues Studios, Ryan's recent projects include Angus and Julia Stone, Harry Connick, Jr., Clint Black, Whitey Morgan & the 78's, Third Eye Blind, and the Black Lillies.
