    I've worked with many producers in the UK and US, and none have come close to Ollie as an all-rounder. Ollie is outstanding in his ability to take a song concept and bring it to life. He understands how to get the best out of a vocal, which is rare in my experience, as producers tend to excel on the musical side, but lack a good ear for proper vocal delivery in collaboration with the singer. He is extremely versatile, capable of producing across genres, has ears for mixing and balancing and is a great guy. My go to producer, I strongly recommend Ollie.

    Ollie is simply such an amazing producer with such a creative and beautiful imagination! I love how he could bring two of my songs to life and still produce exactly what I had in mind and more with beautiful instrumentation. Thank you for yout talent, patience and support and helping me create a song that reached no1 in the singer songwriter charts 🙏🏻

    I've been working with Ollie on several songs, and he is such a prince to work with. So much fun, so much patience, always shares of his knowledge and delivers high quality work very quickly. I would highly recommend him to anybody, but maybe especially to someone who's new to working with a producer. This man can help you with anything you need, to make your music fabulous, as well as being as kind as they come.

    We’ve been working with Ollie for many years now. He creates all the music and sound fx for our Red Rope Theatre shows. Every time we are delighted. He has a fantastic ability to create what we want even if we haven’t articulated it fully. We’ve thrown big challenges his way which he’s risen to every time. Ollie is extremely professional, but also lovely company and if he ever gets stressed you wouldn’t know it, he always puts the work first so you don’t have to worry about egos. One of our favourite parts of rehearsal is when we get to listen to the soundtrack for the first time - magic!

    We worked with Ollie on our most recent EP. From the moment we first discussed the project Ollie was professional and inspiring to work with. Ollie perfectly walks the line between technician and artist and is fastidious when searching for the right tone and most fluid and satisfying way of achieving it. He was able to instantly put us all at ease in the studio and at all times our creative vision came first. The result was beyond what we could have hoped for, he is rare and precious thing and when we record our album he will literally be the first person we call.

    Ollie produced, mixed and mastered my album “Morning, Kashif!” In 2018 and I was overjoyed with the results. Ollie always goes the extra mile, his knowledge, expertise and creativity are excellent. He always made himself available to listen to my musical ideas, and was always on hand to make useful suggestions and make my album better. I honestly couldn’t have embarked on the process without him. The finished product was professional, polished and was more than I ever could have expected. His production skills are, quite simply, the best I’ve seen. Highly recommended.

    Ollie is amazing. I have worked with him in many ways.
    As a novice in the studio, he patiently extracts and creates what I need “make it more Carnegie Hall!” He’s never condescending nor a diva, he brings my crazy ideas to life!

    Occasionally I bring in other musicians, producers, & he works exceedingly well with them, he is able to co-create & his ego never gets in the way.

    We write together, Ollie is a multi-instrumentalist (he’s very humble about his talents)- he’s phenomenal. Whether it’s dark trip hop, pop bangers or glorious Celine style ballads… He’s genuinely a great guy.

    I have been lucky enough to work with Ollie on a number of tracks and every time I am impressed by his efficiency, creativity and professionalism. He has brought each track to life and I have been especially impressed by his string arrangements. I will look forward to working with him again soon and couldn't recommend him highly enough.

    Ollie's production of my single was awesome. The instrumentation he added was phenomenal and enhanced the song ten fold. His mixing was also superb, he is a great guy to work with.
