Reviews of Raz Olsher
Very easy to work with and understanding. Repeat customer for sure!
Raz is an excellent producer, groovy musician and I can recommend his magic musical powers! Fossil Studios is a beautiful place to create, rehearse and record. We have had great success together and It has been a pleasure working with him for the last 4 years on and off stage.
Working with Raz and the guys at Fossil Studios has always been a great pleasure. I go there for voice-over recordings and the environment is easy-going, comfortable and professional. Always impressed by the service and would highly recommend!
Working with Raz is such a liberating experience. He has a great ear for envisioning an entire soundworld and is super flexible with regards to the creative process. Fossil Studios truly feels like home and his commitment to your project goes beyond the studio. Simply amazing! xxx
Raz is a verified genius and a lovely guy. If it needs recording, playing or composing talk to Raz first
Always a pleasure working with Raz and his team recording my operatic voice atop more modern sounds. Great studio, professional and lots of fun!!
We have worked with Raz at Fossil Studios on several projects from classical scores to electronic remixes and value his versatile production talent and arrangement skills. The studio itself has a great vibe and is one of our favorite writing spaces. Top London address for any sound production.
I've dipped in an out of Fossil over the last few months to record an EP. We've gone in with skeletons and some big ideas and come out with four tracks we're massively proud of, thanks to Raz and Aaron's obsessive attention to detail, endless patience and vocal coaching. Would recommend the guys to anyone!
I produced 2singles and an EP at Fossil Studios.Raz is very methodical but also musically very adventurous. He takes time to understand the intention of the artist,has a full grasp of his gadgets and a capacity to hear the ultimate level where a song can go to and never shy of taking any challenges to take it there.I'll be back for more recordings!
“Love the Fossil Effect a consummate studio with the almost Rabbinical wisdom and judgement of Raz Olsher steering this mighty sonic enterprise. Quality and comfort always at the front here - book now”
i've known Raz as a producer and composer for several years and love his studio style, his energy and creativity. I've recorded acoustic ensembles - strings, trumpet and percussion and enjoyed his string sounds more than any other producer i've worked with.
Every time I'm in London , I never miss a visit to Fossil studio! Raz is a big inspiration and influence on me as a musician /producer/ engineer
I recorded vocals here and Raz was just fantastic. We turned everything round in record time and Raz's expertise coupled with the ability to understand my vision resulted in a sound that I'm super happy with. I felt very comfortable and the vibes in the studio were supportive in helping me to relax and focus in on recording. My go to studio!
I worked with Raz in the early days....It was a barrel of laughs and it helps that you don't need to go anywhere else once you have an idea. The boys can see you through to mastering.
Working with Raz on my first record Valor at Fossil Studios was a totally positive experience. His support and commitment to working with me as a producer allowed me to relax and it brought out the best in me. He gave 100% and i'll always be grateful for that!
Raz took a piece of music (an original score written by Roger O'Donnell, the keyboard player for The Cure) and transformed it into the soundtrack for Not Ever - playing with tempo, forwards/backwards loops and then designed the soundscape for the movie around it. He's the only person I would go to for sound design, and a genuinely nice guy too!
Have had six sessions so far and really impressed with the service provided. Passionate and always go that extra bit further to ensure we're happy with the final product. Would highly recommend
