    Working with Howard was a breeze. He is a very intuitive and soulful singer and I was so impressed with quality of the vocals he provided. He was very patient with me when some last minute revisions were needed. Overall the product I received from Howard was top notch and served my purposes perfectly. I highly recommend working Howard.

    Fantastic voice, excellent recordings. Cut right through the mix. Howard was able to sing the main vocal with character and do backing vocals with sophisticated harmonies on his own, with no problems.

    It was great working with Howard, I had never used SoundBetter before so was apprehensive about the process but Howard put my mind at ease. After 24 hours I had a sample of the direction Howard was taking my music in. He understood the brief and connected with the music to portray the feeling I wanted. I would definitely work with Howard again.

    Howard is a very competent musician and was able to easily follow my instructions and requests. He really took on my project as his own and put in little extras to make my track sound just right. Howard has a big vocal range and is capable of imitating different vocal styles. His recordings sound very powerful and professional. I would highly recommend working with him.
