about elevation

Elevation Music Studio, est: 2013

Ryan Lewis-25_edited.jpg

My name is Ryan Lewis

I am the owner and operator of EMS


The heart behind Elevation Music Studio (EMS) is simply to bring together a few passionate individuals, creating a subsequent culture, where music, and the art of music, is our common thread.


I have always dreamt of being a part of, or creating, a movement where the artist is submissive to the art; being completely attuned, comprehensive, still, equally overwhelmed by it – and in the interim, displaying honesty, humility and integrity.  Time and time again, I have seen this nurturing process change individual perspective, and social dichotomy.


There is nothing text-book, as it pertains to creating art; we are free to expound upon an emotion by which we are afflicted, and allow its manifestation to be free;  not to fit into the mold of what already exists – and do so absent thought, and free from contempt. This is the heart & mandate of EMS.


I would love to chat with you about your art, passion and creative vision sometime soon!





artist development

At EMS, we do things a bit differently: We endeavor to create an atmosphere that points towards enabling and empowering each artist to be able to pursue a career in music, should they so desire.

Elevation Music Studio is an audio recording establishment that offers music and artist development for both beginners and professionals, in a fun and safe environment.

Names/Titles are very important, as it relates to perception.

“I’ve had the exceptionally good fortune of working with Ryan on and off for the last five years. On stage he is electric; engaging the audience and simply nailing his performances with precision. Off stage he is organized, meticulous and professional. Ryan has an intrinsic knowledge of his craft, which is so rare and so necessary these days.”
