Songs I have produced/mixed/mastered have garnered over 1 Billion streams across the internet. As an artist, I understand the intricacies that make a song sound special. In this day and age, standing out is more important than sounding "perfectly polished".
I focus on bringing out the most important elements in your music to ensure the most pleasant and repeatable listening experience possible. My knowledge in regards to the technical aspects of the streaming world allow me to focus on detail in the songs, while assuring that they will come across on whatever platform the fan is listening on.
As a Producer I've worked with artists such as Julia Michaels, Quinn XCII, Gnash, Kacy Hill, Shallou, Erik Hassle and many others across every major label. This experience has allowed me to hone my craft and develop a sound that is both unique yet universally palatable.

I'm an amateur hobbyist musician. Riley treated my song with love and care and turned a poorly recorded mix into a cool track with a vintage vibe.
Really amazing job! Superb quality.
Been working with Riley on mastering my debut album. He always brings the best elements of each track to the forefront. I couldn't recommend him enough
Interview with Riley Knapp
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Every in the box plug in imaginable, UA, multiple monitors with a dedicated and treated work space.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Mura Masa... he has such a diverse yet exciting production style. He blends genres in a meticulous way.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Emotion, Density and Impact.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently in the studio with Julia Michaels, Quinn XCII, Wes Period, Shallou, and many others.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Stick with your gut- don't let outside opinions cloud the integrity of your product. Our job as engineers is to hear the artists vision and execute it in whatever way they feel is right.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make sure you build dynamics into production, and don't over edit.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work fast and viscerally. Listening to the song or whole album all the way through is the most important first step. After I get a feel for what the artist is going for, I do my best to bring out each important element while subtly taking out anything that detracts from the sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, mastering and additional production. Pretty much anything to take the music to the next level sonically.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My artist project RKCB, which consists of me and my writing/production partner Casey Barth, is the most personal thing to me.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, depending. Every situation is different.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That they will like the sound of their song after I am done with it more than they thought they would.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Every part of it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started off as a touring drummer, playing and touring professionally since I was 15. That lead me into a love for production, which grew into overall love for sonics and sound. I am currently a signed artist as well as a producer/writer for other artists.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Modern sound with a bit more rule breaking.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Chill, Electronic and Hip Hop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ears and my taste.
