    Ricky is the man!
    He knew exactly what he wants on his track and communicated it all very clearly which in turn made my job easier and a lot more fun.
    Pleasure working with such a kind person, besides - He's a KILLER guitar player and he'll make your tracks sound amazing!

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ricky since 2017/2018 on several projects and his approach to the music; understanding feel and tone both live and in studio; has added a great sonic element to the music while still staying true to the record. His ear, ability to capture the vision with innovation and edge, rhythm, along with his professionalism and punctuality is why I’ve trusted him as my go-to guitarist all these years. Ricky has authentically inspired me and I’ve become a better musician because of it. If that mans tracksuit doesn’t say enough about him, his playing surely will.
