Super highly recommended!
I've worked with Ray Riendeau where he was the session bassist for a project I was producing. He is a consummate professional and cranks out mix-ready tracks that are solid and musical. Most important, he has a friendly, professional demeanor. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.
Ray is a pleasure to work with and a true master of his craft. I’m a producer, engineer, studio owner and have had the opportunity to witness his magic first hand. Always happy to call Ray in on a session!

Ray is a phenomenal player and the ultimate professional. I've had the pleasure of working with him on multiple projects -- both domestic and international, and not only has he always delivered the top-notch playing that he is known for, but he's always kept a positive, professional attitude. I highly recommend Ray.
I've used Ray on many sessions from rock to country , his professionalism is outstanding, his biggest talent is making the song feel good , melody is everything to him .
I've done many recording sessions with Ray. He's a great guy & fantastic musician.
He always "plays for the gig". Ray can play the simplest country & rock, to the most
complex funk & jazz. He always has a great groove & plays the best parts for the
song / style he's recording (or playing live).
I highly recommend him for any recording session or live gig.

Ray Riendeau is one of the most world-class bassists on the planet. I had the honor of playing with Ray and working with him for nearly 3 years. In addition to his incredible gifting as an artist/musician, he's great to work with and always comes prepared to any gig, project or recording. He is truly one of the best and most inspirational musicians I have ever worked with. You won't be disappointed if you work with Ray.
