Producer | Engineer | Mixing | Mastering

For over 25 years in the music industry with credits on numerous recordings as a guitarist / producer / engineer / mixer and mastering engineer, including his own work as a composer.  In 1987, worked at Phase One as assistant engineer, in an environment dedicated to music and making albums.  A graduate from the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe College - a unique program that inspires musicianship, songwriting, production and the art of recording engineering.  Studied music at Humber College.  In addition to the benefits of combining his musical, compositional and technical skills with those he works with, Ray's clients say that he 'plugs into the music' and has the ability to capture good performances through a relaxed approach in the studio. 

Whatever your goals are, I will assist you in realizing your vision, whether it's recording your songs, your band, fine tuning with some pre-pro or having some fine session musicians play on your tracks.  Please call or email me with any questions you might have!
