Rion Richard

Pop & RnB Producer / Engineer

Rion Richard on SoundBetter

My name is Rion, I've been producing for 10+ years and I'm working out of Finland, Helsinki. If you're looking for pop with a touch of soul, I'm your guy! I like to have minimal but unique production with plenty of melody. However if you go through my portfolio, you can hear styles with wide variety.

Recent projects:

- I'm one of the producers working with Lungi Naidoo, who is a South African artist (previously signed to Universal Music SA) on her independent up and coming project. Lungi recently performed at a South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s inauguration in May 2019.

- I've worked on a project "Girls I Rate" with Carla Marie Williams and Young Man Music who have worked with Beyonce, Britney Spears and Craig David.

- I've had the chance to work with Brian Angel who is part of Day 26 an American male R&B music group formed in August 2007 by Sean "P. Diddy" Combs in a handpicked selection at the end of MTV's Making the Band 4.

- I've worked with dozens of independent artists, selling hundreds of beats online and offline. I'm being regularly hired to record, mix and master for independent projects.

- On all of the social media platforms combined, my beats have gathered close to 500.000 plays without including the songs I've produced.

- I know many amazingly talented vocalists and songwriters I can bring in if needed.

Prices shown are just estimates, every project is different. Please don't hesitate to contact and ask. Everything is negotiable! I'm extremely open and easy to work with, your satisfaction with the final product is 100% my priority. Looking forward to hearing from you.
