"To say that Ron helped to shape my career would be an understatement. He was a mentor to me and the experience I had working with him was invaluable. Jefferson Starship, Heart, The Babys, and UFO are just a few of many timeless and classic projects that we worked on together. Ron gives all aspects of his productions full attention. He is there to guide you and make sure that the arrangement, the melody and instrumentation serves the song. His mixes have clarity and dynamics. I don’t think you can ask for a better partner to make your music the best it can be."

"Paul Stanley Here... For years I wanted to work with Ron because his history of working with great singers was well known. From Paul Rodgers to Robert Plant to Ann Wilson he was the guy. He had the ears for making hits and he knew how to make something sound great on the radio. His discography speaks for itself. On top of all that he’s a cool guy!"

"I cannot say enough about Ron Nevison. I was young and inexperienced when we recorded that first Damn Yankees album... and Ron really took me under wing. To me, he was more than just a great Producer and Engineer... he was a creative, guiding force... and he quickly became a confidant and a supportive friend. That established a relationship which continued through the second Damn Yankees album... recordings with Freddie Mercury and Cher... and into my current band, Lynyrd Skynyrd. If you have an opportunity to work with Ron Nevison... do it."

Additional Reviews

I first met and worked with Ron in California in 2014 on my E.P “Share A Little Time”. I had worked and recorded in Canada on previous projects of mine, but not with a producer of Ron’s calibre, skills and experience in the business. His track record speaks for itself. I had always wanted to work with Ron because of the many influences I have of his work with the bands I was influenced by. What he got out out of my vocal abilities in the studio is something I will always remember, and be grateful for! I have a great amount of respect for him, and I am proud to call him a friend!

It was a little intimidating to hear from Ron Nevision, look up what he has produced over the years. But after a short discussion Ron proved to be very easy to work with, no rock star bad attitude. He mixed our song and what came back was 100% pro, ready to go. We had a minor change request which was done right away. We are a current rock band but mostly influenced by 70s-90s rock. Perfect match for Ron Nevison. Thanks again Ron.

Always prepared, highly professional and talent like no other. Preproduction is a process Ron does not skip. He is terrific at helping to choose the best songs and the transition into the studio becomes much easier. I first worked with Ron as a twenty two year old and from then on we had a string of hits. Ron asked me to play on other artists projects and his game plan always contains success in the form of hit records. Ron also has the ability to use his terrific engineering chops that at times can go unnoticed due to of his uncanny sense of production. He’s brilliant.

Frankie SullivanGuitarist & Songwriter | Survivor

Ron treated my mix with attention and care, bringing out the qualities that I could not, and adding exactly what I wanted. He is a listener, both to what he is working on, and his clients.

James C.RecordBetter Client

Out of all of the music producers I’ve had in my 55 years in rock & roll, Ron Nevison is at the top of the list. Not only does he have massive engineering chops (big ass drum sounds and shimmering vocals) but his musicality and arrangement ideas can elevate an ok song into greatness and a great song into incredible. His work on the Vital Signs album will stand the test of time in part by the production work of Ron Nevison.

Jim PeterikMember of the Ides Of March, formerly of Survivor and of 38 Special fame

Ron is one of the greatest engineer producers I have ever worked with in my 40 years of making records. He's musically brilliant, understand songs, lyrics, artists, bands, and knows how to make a record sound amazing from top to bottom. Ron gets the best sounds when he engineers and is an amazing mixer also. He gets so passionately involved with each record he makes, it feels like he is a member of that band. I have worked with Ron for over 30 years and I know he is the best at what he does.

Kenny AronoffDrummer for John Mellencamp, BoDeans, John Fogerty, and more!

Ron proved to be exactly what I was hoping to find when I came to this site. He took what we’d done on our own, and with only a couple small revisions, turned it into something better than we thought it could be. His catalog should speak for itself, but rest assured that you’ll be happy with your results. Will absolutely continue working with him.

Ron, You have a client for life! Consider yourself a member of the band. Although we just started working together... In retrospect, Ron has shaped my career as a musician. Every album he has worked on has been an inspiration throughout my existence. His ears are as good as they come. Pure brilliance!

Marko C.SoundBetter Client

Ron is a no-nonsense professional. He was attentive, he started when he said he was going to and finished on time. Our tracks sound terrific as well. Overall a pleasure to work with!

Kyle H.SoundBetter Client

You don't have to be a rock star to work with Ron Nevison, but he sure makes you feel like rock n' roll royalty. He's a class act through and through. With his vast knowledge of music, his finely tuned ear and spot on rhythm there is a reason why he is one of the most formidable talents and one of the greatest producers of all time. Work with Ron on your team and you'll never regret it. One of the best things I've ever done!!

Tamar here from the Portland based band Paradise. In July 2017, we were lucky enough to work with Ron Nevison on our third full length album which also happened to be a rock opera. We knew Ron engineered Quadrophenia and worked with Pete Townshend so for us, it a dream come true. From our first conversations about what we wanted to achieve, Ron was incredible. He listened to our demos, came to our rehearsal, helped book and negotiate which is something you just do not see today in producers. Our time in the studio was TRULY MAGICAL. I cannot say enough good things. LOVE YOU RON!

Tamar BerkVocalist/Organist | Paradise

Working with Ron in the 1970s basically set the benchmarks for me in terms of the "quality to aspire to" for the recorded sounds of all instruments. Whether drums, guitar, piano.... from that point on the question would always be ""How would this sound if Nevison had recorded it?". Add to that my first real experience of the sound of "epic" mix wise, a razor sharp intuition of how to enhance the writer's original idea production wise and you have my biggest studio influence in the package of one person. My time spent with Ron Nevison was truly unforgettable.

John SinclairKeyboardist | The Babys, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, and more!

Ron produced all of our albums. We just completed studio album 5, titled, Rock Show Girl which will be released in a month or so. Ron is great to work with. He is a real professional and meticulous in getting the perfect finished product. He has a great ear for the right guitar sounds, drum set-up, tempo and timing. His formula for creating epic rock songs is well documented over the hundreds of hits he has produced in his 40 plus years in Rock N Roll. We love working with him. Vittorio and Vincenzo, V Squared.

Anthony PiazzaSoundBetter Client

Ron Nevison produced a number of songs for me on my RIPE album. In short time and on a limited budget he assembled a team of uber-talented engineers, arrangers and studios to bring my songs into accessible form and speaker-popping fidelity. His vibe is chill in the studio; he knows how to guide an artist toward their potential and away from their own misgivings. His stories are the stuff of legends. He’s a sweetheart. Aloha Ron!

"This rating only goes to 5. Mine goes to 6. That’s one more than 5! As the only original founding member and lead guitar player/songwriter for Jefferson Starship and Starship on everything during the only hit-making years (1974-1990), the albums produced by Ron are outstanding examples of classic rock guitar production with songs like JANE, FIND YOUR WAY BACK, STRANGER, SAVE YOUR LOVE, ROCK MUSIC, etc., every album I was on went platinum and the ones Ron produced are still favorites and are still heard everyday on classic rock radio and streams. His vocals, drums, and keyboards are stellar!"

Craig ChaquicoGuitarist/Songwriter | Jefferson Starship and Starship

"Preproduction rehearsals with Ron got us fully prepared for recording the first Damn Yankees album. His excellent engineering and skills as producer quickly brought our new music to life and it was an exciting time hearing it unfold. Bombastic drums, soaring guitar sounds, big vocals, magnificent orchestral sessions. Unforgettable times. Great Nevison memories!"
