    There are no limits to Ray's creativity and insight. He's the guy who sweats the details and always goes above and beyond for his clients. He's worked with me since the beginning of my career and still works with me till this day on everything I release. Highly recommended!!

    Ray is one of the most creative and diligent people I've ever worked with. his encouraging spirit and attention detail is unlike anyone I've ever worked with. without a doubt I wouldn't be making 6 figures as a full time artist if it wasn't for ray rock.

    Ray is one of the most knowledgeable people I know. Not only in music (at which he is amazing - he is always creating), but also how to market oneself. He is innovative and always has new and fresh ideas. He is a genuine person and does everything with a pure enthusiasm that makes him a delight to be around. He is great at brainstorming ideas, concepts, and developing projects. He loves to get to the heart of how something works so he can help make it better. He's also a wonderfully down to earth, thoughtful, and considerate human being who treats his work is an extension of himself.

    Ray is a true student of music, in every sense. From technical knowledge all the way down to the history of a genre, Ray is someone that has immersed himself in all things music. This, in addition to his experience, combine to make him a great guide, coach, and collaborator. Last, but not least, he’s someone that embodies truly admirable character qualities. He would not stop at just greatly improving your art, he would be willing to give you the shirt off his back if need be. People say that often about a lot of people but when it comes to Ray all of these things are simply true.

    Ray always finds a way to enhance a project, he works with you, has patience, and can help guide you to the sound you're looking for. He understands the industry, music theory, and has always helped me not only enhance my tracks, but enhance my knowledge of music to help me grow moving forward. I will continue to work with Ray and I highly recommend his work.

    It’s an honor to connect with Ray, he architects music the way he architects his life. He creates space for divine inspiration. His passion for his craft transcends through all of his projects. Ray is a genuine person and that’s what you sense in all of his productions. He leads with Truth and Purpose and that inspires creativity in its purest form. He’s extremely intentional, so there is no wonder why his designs are a extraordinary. Rock with Ray, he’s Real.

    Ray is for sure super knowledgeable on things concerning the music industry. With experience and time he’s put in. Any time ray is in town for a show he makes sure to put time aside to pour into me whether it was coming through and producing or helping with some melodies on a demo I was working on. Ray has definitely allowed me to tap into a different mindset when it comes to my writing and I’m thankful for the conversations and influence he’s had on my life.

    Ray is an extremely knowledgable individual. He’s played many roles within the music industry and is very well rounded. My favourite thing about Ray is his willingness to share information and give advice. He has a genuine heart to connect people and is always looking at ways of maximising situations and making them the biggest and best they can be. Looking forward to more opportunities to work with Ray in the future.

    Phenomenal producer and human being. I've worked with Ray the last 3 years on having him mixed down my podcasts, consult some of the artists I've worked with and also seen first hand how he makes his music and then goes into the studio. Hard working, dope beats and he makes sure to work on a project until its top notch.

    Ray is the definition of a professional. He’s worked with many artists big and small and always finds a way to enhance their performance as well as their natural abilities. We have worked with Ray on 2 projects and it is one of the best investments we have ever made.
