Welcome to Coyote Ridge Audio

Based in beautiful Mills River NC, we specialize in acoustic roots music, audio production, music instruction and performance, and acoustic ensembles for weddings and other private events.


“I love sound, in particular the complex sound of musical tone.  I love hearing a finely crafted instrument in the hands of a great musician, and capturing that tone and musical moment on a recorded medium.  Whether I’m making an instrument with fine materials and tonewoods, making a record with fine musicians, or making a lasting impression on stage in front of an attentive audience- I am passionate about making works of musical art that bring people enjoyment for many years- and inspire younger generations to carry on the musical traditions and artistry.”
-Tim Gardner
