Ronnie is an incredibly talented and thoughtful producer, instrumentalist, and overall creator. He is an effective communicator and collaborator, making it really easy to partner on a project. I am so happy with the way he has helped to reimagine my songs and deliver a high-quality product that I can't wait to release. 100% would recommend.
Torna is a very well rounded multi instrumentalist and versatile producer. He is intuitive, tasteful, and flexible which combined make him an amazing collaborator. He is able to provide a soundscape that encompasses not just the mood of the song he's working on, but the tiny intricacies that turn a good song into a great song. His attention to detail sets his productions apart from the rest, and he is super easy and communicative to work with. Anyone hiring Torna for his number of skills in music will surely be pleased with his work.
Ronnie (Torna) is such an incredibly thoughtful producer and engineer. Writing music is such a vulnerable thing, and he creates a safe, welcoming space to express yourself freely. He's also a wildly talented musician with an amazing grasp of music theory, so if you bring him a song that you're feeling a little stuck on, he can help you elevate it and add a little harmonic spice. My favorite songs are the ones I've worked on with Ronnie, because he's just as much of a stickler for quality and creativity as I am, and will not cut corners.
