"Olli a highly skilled producer and engineer, who fully engages in any project he works on, suggests ideas I'd never thought of which has made a huge difference to the tracks, offers creative and technical advice and also happens to be a genuinely lovely person! I've worked with Olli on a number of projects now and would definitely recommend him to other artists"
“I love how it's captured the live feel, but it also sounds really professional… it is really just what I dreamed!”
“Olli was extremely personable and enthusiastic, which is important to me. He made us all feel comfortable and confident, which in the end is what allowed us to do our best live performance. His passion for his work really shone through throughout the whole process, from setting up mics on the first day of our live recording to the final mixes. This is the happiest I have ever been with a recorded representation of my music.”
“The fact that Olli has managed to recreate the recording capabilities of a full studio within the comfort of a home setting makes the experience at Blue Dot Studios even more enjoyable. We’ve been working with Olli since the beginning and he fully understands how to capture our ideas on recording; he makes the process completely interactive so we remain fully in control at all times and he always manages to bring out the best in us, whether that’s by pushing us to work that little bit harder, or by making us laugh until the tears stream down our faces.
Recently we’ve started bringing him out with us to do our live sound and his enthusiasm and attention to detail allows us to go on stage, safe in the knowledge that he has our back when it comes to what’s going on out front.
We cannot recommend Olli enough if you’re looking for a sound engineer that’s as passionate as the artist themselves about delivering the best final product possible. If you’re looking for an engineer who will become a trusted friend and part of the team, then Olli’s your guy. In fact, wait, we need him. Ignore everything we’ve said… HE’S OUR LITTLE SECRET!”
‘Not only has Olli become a great part of my music over the years but he’s also become a great friend too. His passion, commitment and knowledge are second to none and I’ll always be grateful for his contribution to my music career. I can’t recommend him enough!’
"I worked with Olli on my debut EP, titled 'What Would You Do?'. After a week spent recording, Olli was able to transform my acoustic songs into a creative and commercially successful album.
I know that without Olli's brilliant creative influence on the project, the EP would not have performed so well in the charts as it did. In particular, his favourite track, Superman, was produced to an exceptional standard and as a result found itself in the iTunes top 100 singles chart.
An innovative, bubbly and extremely talented producer, Olli is capable of turning simple songs into guaranteed toe tappers for all to enjoy!"
"I met Olli in 2010 when I was struggling to find somewhere to record my music.
A friend recommended his studio and I booked a session after hearing her songs. Since then Olli has been the only producer I have worked with on my solo music.
Olli knows how to turn your songs into something special. Through his extensive knowledge of studio recording and producer/engineer experience in the music industry; he can make you feel at ease in a relaxed and comfortable environment; giving way for the creative sparks to fly!
I can recommend Blue Dot Studios to anyone who wants to make a demo, record a cover, create an EP for their band or have an entire album made from scratch.
“Olli is a genius. Plain and simple. I’d been trying to self-produce my EP for a while, but I just couldn’t get that polished feel that I wanted so I looked for a producer. Blue Dot seemed like the best choice; the price was extremely competitive and the samples that I heard on the website sounded exactly how I wanted my music to sound.
Olli makes you feel very welcome into his home/studio, and I found that not being in a ‘by-the-numbers’ place made it very easy to relax and enjoy what’s going on which really helps with the recording process. He was hugely encouraging; even if I thought a take wasn’t so good, he’d pick out the best parts of it and focus on those to keep spirits up. Everything was constructive-positivity.
Watching Olli work is an absolute joy. He is someone who has music in his blood, and whatever the project his passion for what he does shines through. He hears things that I couldn’t even imagine, and that totally changed the perception of some of my songs.
Once I’d released my EP, everyone commented on how professional it sounded. As an unknown artist I think people imagine your recordings will sounds half-baked and amateurish; that will never be the case with Olli. Every song is album/radio quality.
All I can really say is; book Olli if you’re a musician looking to record. He is exceptionally talented, patient, encouraging and above all else a really, really nice guy. You’ll have a blast, and an amazing sounding record at the end of it all.”
“I couldn't recommend this any higher, a brilliant idea for any music lovers or talented singers/musicians. Not only is Olli crazy talented but also the nicest guy you could meet. Get on it!!”
I have been writing songs since I was a teenager and I have been to many different recording studios over the years, but I can honestly say that recording with Olli took my music to a whole new level. Initially I only went there to do a couple of tracks, but I ended up doing a 13 track album because I loved it so much!
Olli is actually amazing and I had so much fun in all my sessions, leaving with a really professional sounding album. He understood exactly what I wanted and always came up with loads of great ideas to make it sound even better than I imagined. He is a brilliant musician and is proficient in all the programs and equipment. He put a lot of time and effort into this album and helped me from start to finish. He also put me in touch with an excellent rap artist to feature on one of my tracks which exceeded all my expectations.
This album is what I've always wanted to achieve and I can't thank him enough.
If you are thinking about recording a song then I highly recommend Olli. I will definitely be going back to record more! I just wish I had found him sooner.
I first met Olli 3 years ago, just as I was exploring the possible directions for my music. Being only 16, I had never recorded in a professional studio before and was very nervous about it all, but from the moment I walked in the room Olli made me feel at ease.
Olli has helped me grow as an artist these past 3 years. He has always been totally supportive of my musical choices and on the same wavelength as me when it comes to studio production. Together we recorded my debut EP in 2015 as well as a couple of singles since, and I can always rely on him to produce incredible results with my tracks.
Out of all the producers I’ve ever worked with, Olli is by far my favourite. Not only is he amazing at what he does, he’s a great laugh too, and I look forward to our studio chit-chats about what we’ve both been up to since we last recorded together.
Although I have to travel a 400 mile round trip for a session, It is definitely worth the journey and would highly recommend him to any musicians or bands looking to record at a really good price, with a really great guy!
