    You hear the dude's tone, its crazy, thats first off. There's a ferocity in his tone, that when leaned into really brings extra shiny moments to already fantastic vocal performances. I just had to have for my tune. Joe was a patient professional. Even was going so far as to accommodate a request of mine, that was silly and I later retracted. He's a big communicator. I never had any ambiguity about where he was in the process. He's very focused on making great recordings in a timely manner.

    Wow - I could not be more impressed with Joe than I am. He is incredibly professional - he responded to my original inquiry in under an hour with clear and concise terms and delivered the final project in under 24 hours - that's unheard of. Most importantly the quality of the vocal he provided is unmatched. His tone, timing, pitch, and delivery were all spot on - it's no wonder why he has such an impressive resume. Most certainly looking forward to working together again soon, Joe!

    Joe works really fast, so good and quick it was hard to keep up with him!
    He sang my vocal notes to precise exact timings which is never easy but was a breeze for him.
    Had a vocal stem delivered all within a day, very impressive thank you.
