Ollie is an amazing artist. I gave him something no one else could figure out / make into a song that I genuinely liked and he nailed it. I highly recommend!!!
What a talented genuine human. I have been working with Ollie over the past 5 months on my EP and it has been a highly rewarding experience. His sensitivity, patience and ear have made for a really comfortable creative environment, bringing out the best in the project. I look forward to working with Ollie again and highly recommend him. He's got ya back!
I’ve worked with Ollie on a number of different occasions over the past few years and he has always been absolutely phenomenal to work with. His versatility, flexibility and overall sensititivity in nailing the perfect soundscape for the project has been an invaluable asset to have in the studio. Having him onboard has always been such an incredible advantage. I would highly recommend Ollie for any project in the future.
