Collective Soul/Paul Rodgers drummer Ryan Hoyle announces the opening of Cave Studio in Los Angeles, which specializes in custom drum tracks by Ryan himself. My concept is to use world class outboard gear to record and export raw drum tracks of the very highest quality providing the very best organic ingredients for the artist/producer to use whatever spices they deem necessary to suit the needs of their particular vision says Hoyle.
My goal is to be able to continue to record as much as I can with the added convenience of being able to work at home due to my touring schedule and the obvious high maintenance factor of having to travel and route gear all over the place. It is also a great thing to think about the reality that with current technology I can record a drum track for a producer in Tokyo, London, or even Sydney and deliver it to them during a night's sleep. It is my mission to let the world know that even though I play in this band or with that artist, I am still accessible to record on their project too.
The studio can also accommodate those who want to engineer/produce their own tracks, offering both Pro Tools 7.4 and Logic 8.In addition to the vast selection of drums, cymbals, and other assorted percussion Ryan has collected over the years, the studio is equipped with API 3124+, Vintech 473 (Neve Clone), and Apogee Mini-Me pre amps, Apogee Rosetta 800 Converters and a well rounded selection of classic, vintage, and modern microphones.Ryan extends his non-drumming services as well, including engineering the session himself and offering an FTP server that will allow collaborations and the transfer of files via the internet.For more information about Cave Studios, please visit http://www.ryanhoyle.com/thelab.html

About Ryan Hoyle:
Ryan Hoyle has recorded with artists such as Bela Fleck, Michael Tolcher, The Warren Brothers, and Sherrie Austin, as well as toured with many country artists including Jamie O'Neal, Tammy Cochran, and Lila McCann. Hoyle began working with multi-platinum selling rock artists Collective Soul in October 2003, recording eight of the eleven drum/percussion tracks on their 2004 release, "Youth". Hoyle has since toured exclusively with the band, performing in hundreds of sold out shows around the globe. As the newest member of Collective Soul, Hoyle quickly gained favor among the fans and is featured in "Home"; a greatest hits DVD of the band performing alongside the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra and in their newest release "Afterwords".
Following two-years of touring in support of "Youth", the band decided to take a well needed break. During this time, Hoyle seized the opportunity to join Free, Bad Company, and Queen vocalist Paul Rodgers on his sold-out UK tour. This experience yielded a full-length live concert CD and DVD entitled "Live in Glasgow" that was released in May 2007.
