Testimonials

"Ray Montford mixed our album Four Higher up at Pucks Farm, using a slew of vintage gear, and an old school un-automated board. His experience shone through, giving the album a wonderfully rich, airy sound with a fat bottom end. Ray is an excellent engineer with big, musical ears, and he's a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for the best of the analogue and digital worlds, Ray is your man. Audiophile quality."
- Ed Hanley

"Working with producer/engineer Ray Montford was both a pleasure and an education. In tense situations Ray always answered the bell with calm determination. His dedication to my project was next to none. With his musical ears, experience and sonic aesthetic, he created this really cool modern and 'ol time sound, at the same time.  The bottom line is that I have and album that I am very proud of.  Ray had so much to do with that!
" - Howard Willett


"Ray brought to "Lifelines" a compassionate ear and a lot of heart. He knows when the magic is in the air and captures it in the spirit of great engineers like Phil Ramone and David Green. He listens and becomes a partner in the music. If you are looking for a studio for your next project, look no further. My deep thanks to Ray for facilitating what is, so far, my favourite of all my albums."
- David Bradstreet

"Soundhole studio gives an artist the space and comfort for their creativity to flourish, the warm tones that they capture make it an enjoyable environment for any music to grow in."  
- John Moore

"I’ve been agonizing over what to say about Ray’s work on my recent album.  The fact is, I don’t know where to start. This project was ten years in the making.  It was truly special.  I agonized over each song, going through ten years of writing looking for that perfect fit.
From the moment we first talked, it was obvious that Ray cared as much as I did. I could tell you he recorded, mixed and mastered it beautifully.  I could tell you that the sound was wonderful.  I could tell you that the mixing was superb. But that wouldn’t say enough.  Ray was not just the producer and recording engineer.  He was a true collaborator.  His commitment to being the best we could be was unwavering.  His contribution was enormous. In every track, every take, every performance, Ray brought out the best in all of us.  He helped make this dream into a reality.  In the past forty years I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing talents, so I say this without question or reservation.  For me and for all the musicians who worked on this project, it wouldn’t have been the same without Ray. 
 
I wouldn’t do another project like this without him." - Jim Love
