“The track Pray to God, about people of his mother’s generation getting married off, is a story that we all know of and it’s been discussed in our communities but no one has ever vibed it like that on a musical level.”
I love the recording environment and I have a wide range of studio experience.
I’ve done session vocal work for the BBC, DreamWorks Animation and Cartoon Network. For the CBBC series, Numberblocks, I was commissioned by BAFTA-winning composer, Ben Champion. The song below has 15 mn views.
Have a listen to my showreel, recorded by Oli Whitworth:
“Riaz was an absolute joy to work with. I’d absolutely recommend him for any and all session singer work”
Singing is my biggest musical passion and I have been teaching adults and kids for several years.

The Oxford Beatles
I’m a founder member of The Oxford Beatles, a Beatles cover band that has performed together since 2014. We perform at weddings, balls and festivals around the UK.
In November 2017 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the release of the Sgt Pepper album with an ambitious theatre show, The Sgt Pepper Show, which sold out over five nights at the Simpkins Lee Theatre.
In February 2019 we are performing at The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford. This show sees another live album performance, this time of Revolver and Sgt Pepper, with a 12-piece orchestra, Indian classical musicians and a light show designed by Peter Wynne-Wilson, who has worked with the likes of Pink Floyd.
I’ve gained a lot of experience with the group in performance, live sound, recording, social media marketing and promotion and video editing and production.
