    Working with Sam again was an absolute dream. Evolved our track from a small bedroom demo to a radio worthy single. Very patient with us again to ensure all was kept in our style. Will be utilising his production skills and input as much as possible moving forward. Couldn't recommend him more!

    Once again, Sam has shown he is a magician. He took my rough vocal idea, and he helped turn it into a full blown production. He is incredibly timely too. Lastly, Sam is a great person, and I 10/10 recommend you work with him!

    Sam is fast becoming one of my absolute go-to producers for my songs now - this is the second track he's worked his magic on for me and I'm super happy with the result. The last song he helped me with got Record of the Week on BBC Introducing Radio so he must be doing something right!

    Sam is an incredible person to work with. He understands exactly what you want and is very creative. Sam is easy to communicate with and does it throughout the whole process. From the beginning, he made it very easy to work with him and took my song to levels I could not have imagined. I will definitely be working with him again. If you are looking for someone reliable, creative, limitless, and professional, I recommend him.

Interview with Sam Ray

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: There's a huge list, but I love the variety of sounds of the 80s brought into the world. My first love was pop-punk, but I'm a big fan of pop, synth-pop, rock and indie, and a bunch of other genres. In terms of current inspirations... The 1975, LANY, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Angels & Airwaves, Death Cab for Cutie, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Pale Waves, and many more, are frequent influences on my production and writing.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Currently working at my home studio with Logic Pro X, Pro Tools 12, Waves, Steven Slate, FabFilter, Kontakt Library and a bunch of other software. Hardware wise I'm currently running a 2018 iMac with an Apollo Twink Quad an SE Electronics z3300a, a Shure SM57 Beta, a Blue Spark, a Audio Technica AT2020, a Rhode NT1A, plus multiple guitars and amps.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: I love to ask for references when people are looking for a song or a production. It's really great to know you're on the same wavelength as an artist and that you're both pulling the same direction.

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: Make sure that the person you're hiring is passionate about making your music great - that's the most important thing!

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I'm a very melodic songwriter, and I love lyrics with character, quirk and emotion.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: Song and arrangement are King and Queen.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: I do a lot of work production, mixing, songwriting, and top lining, and generally help artists to develop their style during the production process. I also often engineer, record and mix pop/rock/indie bands too.
