It was a pleasure to work with Eric!
He was professional from the start, always open to my ideas and to any criticism. Always available and would answer to my emails the same day. The work was done fast and with great quality.
We can hear Erik's been doing/writing music for some time. He made a full production from a simple songwriting idea that brought the project new ideas.
The final production tracks were delivered organized and ready for the mixing phase.
100% would recommend!
