Some of the Artists that Raz has worked with in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Work with Raz in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Raz has worked with many artists in a large variety of genres in his Los Angeles based Recording Studio. Read some his many 5 star reviews on Yelp to get a feel for how people enjoy working with him.
Got Raz's phone number from a friend, after I heard some work she'd done with him that I really liked. I brought one of my songs to him, which I felt was pretty good, but with his creative ingenuity, it really took what I had to the next level. It's pretty impressive what can be done with the right production and sound. My music style is Pop, and I was looking to create some beats that were really catchy, he changed some of the hooks and structure, added some modern electronics--Voila! A song you just want to keep on repeat!
Thank you for using your talents!
Raz Klinghoffer is a professional music producer who knows what he is doing. He is also one of those rare people that will listen to your opinions and take them into consideration instead of ignoring them. Of course he will also interject his ideas to the music adding an additional level of complexity and "flavor" that you had an idea of in your head and he was able to extract. He helped me record my piano piece and really taught me a lot while working with it. He is worth every penny I paid and then some!
I love working with Raz! His studio space is super inviting and inspiring.
He is a really talented producer and I always know my vocals will sound top quality when I record them with Raz 🙂
Writing with him is also just as great. He has great musical sensibilities, quick at production and getting a mood set for the song, and his mixing is really top quality - I've told him before that nobody else ever makes "oo" sections sound as amazing as he does 🙂 He really can do it all and do it all well!
Raz's biggest advantage is that he is straight to the point, and that he is honest. He will never tell you stories or waste your time, he is here to work, and not to talk, and he delivers on time.
Came from Irvine in the last few months and it was worth the trip because at the end of the day it's my music and I need someone I know I can trust.
Working with Raz is great. He's responsive with correspondence, creative/ productive in the studio, and has a helpful and likable manager as well. Raz has an ear for good vocal melodies, and can definitely help develop yours to fit the feel of the song. So you can expect someone who is professional and calm, who moves the sessions along gracefully. All in all, good experience.
Raz is an amazing producer to work with. I always thought music production had to be a long, drawn out, tedious process. But Raz has a way of capturing the essence of a song much quicker than I've experienced before and the results were the best I've ever had. I hope to be working with Raz for a long time to come and I would highly recommend you try working with him as well.
