016 - Content Producer Ryan Freeland

Creative Working Title

Back from hiatus, this Creative Working Title episode introduces its most obnoxious guest yet! Ryan rolled in with a lot of demands but he also brought a lot of laughs, however they were mostly him laughing at his own jokes. Enjoy as Ryan and James talk about making video content for brands and then Ryan steals the show (literally) by taking over as host to interview James.

Music Makers and Soul Shakers with Steve Dawson

Ryan is the first engineer I've had on the show, and what an honour it is! This Grammy Award-winning engineer has worked on recordings for Joe Henry, Bonnie Raitt, Aimee Mann, Ray Lamontagne, Allen Toussaint, Aaron Neville, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, The Milk Carton Kids, and countless others. Ryan has engineered many of my favorite albums from the past 15 years and I've always admired his sense of fidelity and space that comes through on his albums.  I spoke with Ryan from his Stampede Origin Studio in LA, and we discussed how he went from being a classical pianist to a recording engineer, getting his first job with Bob Clearmountain on a Springsteen recording, working with long-term collaborators like Joe Henry, how he's approaching mixing the final Allen Toussaint record, and his philosophy on the recording process and his role in it. It's a very illuminating discussion for anyone interested in art and music, not just recording nerds!
