Episode 205: Producing Records w/ Ryan Greene

Ryan Greene is an American record producer, sound engineer, former owner of Crush Recording Studios in Scottsdale, Arizona and founder of Area 52 Entertainment in Los Angeles, California. In an over 25-year-long career he has worked with many artists including Jay-Z, Lita Ford, Tonic, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Usher, Patti LaBelle, and Gladys Knight. 

Ryan was THE guy when it came to producing the bands on Fat Wreck Chords. Some of those bands were NOFX, Lagwagon, No Use For A Name, Propaghandi, Pulley, Hi-Standard, Tilt, Bracket, and a shit ton of others that probably graced your CD collection. 

There are so many good stories in this and I think a lot of you who love or loved the Fat bands from the late 90s will absolutely love them. 

I got Ryan on the Skype and this is what we talk about:

  • Demoing Stranger Than Fiction
  • What the word Demo means to him
  • Figuring out the emotion of each record he records
  • Punk in Drublic’s Mastering debacle
  • Recording Hoss
  • Some of the tricks he learned during his sessions
  • Recording Less Talk More Rock by Propagandhi
  • Recording Guttermouth
  • Tony Sly
  • And a ton more
