Track Happy Studios & Rian Dawson

Hey Everyone

My name is Rian Dawson and I own and operate Track Happy Studios here in Nashville, TN. My life in the music industry started when I was 14 years old and decided to jam in my parents basement with some friends from my 9th grade French class. A few weeks later we landed on the band name All Time Low, and we’re still doing the band thing to this day. Over the past 15 years, I’ve played countless live shows, recorded 8 full length records, 2 DVDs, who knows how many demos and songs in between, but more importantly I’ve learned and taken insight from every step of the way. I hope to share that knowledge with you, learn more from you, and most of all just have a good time while creating the music YOU love. I can’t promise you a record deal, millions of sales, spike in Instagram followers (well, maybe), but I can promise you will have the time of your life creating in my studio. From the second you walk in the door, you will be in a relaxing, inspiring, creative environment with my full attention on you. It all starts with a bit of conversation, so go ahead and contact me and lets make some music.


From the start, I could tell that Rian was 100% invested in my project. He had done his homework and knew my song from start to finish before I even walked into the doors which left a huge impression on me. Once it got down to making the music, things couldn’t have gone smoother. We pitched ideas back and forth, drank lots of cold brew, and brought my song to life. Working at Track Happy was the best studio experience I’ve ever had. The space is incredible, the gear is seemingly endless, and the guy running the sessions is as good of an engineer as they come.
