This is the internet home of Ryan Fraley; composer, arranger, and producer. While I prepare for a major update, some site features will be down for a bit. Well, OK, for a long while. In the meantime, please visit the links below for more information about my work, other than the big book you see above.

For my published works for symphonic and jazz groups, visit:

To learn more about Wave Mechanics Union, a studio jazz orchestra I co-founded with Ralph Johnson and Lydia McAdams, please see:

Our recent album "Further to Fly" was listed by College Music Journal as one of the top 50 jazz releases of 2013, based on radio plays.

Other projects I have contributed to recently:

Jon Anderson
I've been working for vocalist Jon Anderson (from the band Yes) for several years as an arranger and orchestrator. I've done a handful of orchestra arrangements for live and recorded use.

Jon is also a guest on the recent CD by Wave Mechanics Union.

Jon's most recent CD, Survival and Other Stories, features one of my orchestra arrangements.

FJH Instrumental Catalog Recordings
I'm producing band, orchestra, and jazz recordings for FJH. Bigger sessions are tracked at The Lodge in Indianapolis, smaller sessions at my studio.
Orchestra Mock-ups
Coming soon:
And lots of other fun stuff too. I'm very busy with the above projects, so I tend to be selective about other work I accept. (And feel lucky to be so). If you'd like to talk about commissioning a new work, an arrangement, recording, or anything else, please contact me.
