Amaryllis Santiago - Artist and Independent Music Professional (Grammy Board Member Philadelphia)
I am writing this recommendation for Ray after collaborating with him for almost a year. Throughout the year, we have had many conversations on the music industry, styles, genres, and staying true to oneself's vocation, passion, and instinct. Ray has an outstanding ability to pen lyrics based on first giving the credit to our Creator God and then for the person he is writing the song for. He always asks if the lyrics are suitable or if the lyrics have touched the artist. He doesn't just write for the sake of writing. He writes for the sake of creating timeless lyrics to music that lasts and touches those that hear it. I can attest to his utmost professionalism, tireless dedication, truth, and the ability to work in unison with people from all demographics without being judgemental. I am honoured to be collaborating with Ray and his team who have become part of my musical journey.
George Shashin - Composer/Producer
I have co-written several songs with Ray over the past two months and found him to be an extremely creative and versatile lyricist. He has an inbuilt sense of rhyme and metre and his subject matter is extensive. He has been very helpful in procuring the right vocalists for different song genre's, and has freely introduced several of his contacts who have proven useful to me. He possesses a keen eye for an opportunity and is currently pitching a composition of mine for advertisement. Ray is an all round nice guy and I hope my working relationship with him continues long into the future. Raymond is the best lyricist

Dave Haertel - I have known and worked internationally with Ray for a few years now and although I have not met him in person. I have found him to be very consistent in our relationship. He always pays attention to detail concerning his lyric crafting and stays on point with all projects from beginning to completion. Ray in all honesty is the fairest man I have dealt with in the music industry. He is a great mentor, has a great sense of humour and I now consider him to be a good friend. Ray was instrumental in me procuring a record deal, and I consider it a privilege to be a member of his team at Midas King Productions.

He's a very professional, meticulous and inspired songwriter, which loves nice music and is available to discuss and collaborate with other artists. I'm really glad to have known him.
Enrico Giuliani Audio Engineer at Samurai Sound
Raymond is a very unique lyricist. He is incredibly passionate about music and puts all of his energy into his job. I have engineered for Ray and his artist on several occasions, and collaborated with him in procuring vocal recordings from the artist that he was working with at the time. I am pleased that I was given the chance to see how he operates and I was impressed by his dedication to detail when directing how the lyric should be sung to the melodies. It was refreshing that he remained open minded to my suggestions and allowed me to express them freely to the artist. Certainly one of the few I've worked with that does his job with patience, great passion, and good manners. He has years of experience in the music industry and I would recommend his work to anyone. I look forward to working with him again in the near future
