About Ryan Greene

Having started out behind the drums himself in the early days, Ryan Greene soon found himself behind the mixing board. Live engineering at age 15 he gathered so much experience that MCA Music Publishing Studio picked him up a few years later, youngest at the studio but working with famous songwriters and producers Glen Ballard, Diane Warren, Desmond Child, and others. Greene would then move on to EMI Music Publishing as Chief Engineer, working with artists such as Megadeth, Tonic, and Alice Cooper.

It was during this time Greene met Brett Gurewitz of Bad Religion, and Fat Mike of NOFX. This resulted in longtime collaboration on many of the bands’ albums – such as gold selling NOFX album “Punk in Drublic” – Greene doing production, engineering and mixing. The collaboration with Fat Mike went even further when the two started Motor Studios, producing many punk and rock bands during the 90’s. Greene with his deep recording and engineering knowledge would become instrumental in defining the sound of skate punk for years to come.

Co-founding the studio Crush Recording, doing work for the video games “Guitar Hero 3”, “Rock Revolution” and “Rock Band” in the 00’s, Greene kept adding to his already impressive career spanning over 300 records. In 2011 he was awarded “Producer of the Year” at the Los Angeles Music Awards.

This skilled producer has now put all his experience into the effort that is the Alt Drums ReFill.
