It was great working with Howard. Excellent vocals, production, and communicaton. Thank you!
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 turned my backing track into an amazing full ‘hit’ song. His vocals are simply astonishing, and songwriting skills sublime. I will absolutely be sending more music to Howard to work his magic on. Couldn’t recommend any higher! “
He has an amazing voice..Such a nice guy as well.
Great vocalist and very easy to communicate with, will definitely work with Howard again and recommend him if you need a session vocalist!
Working with Howard was spectacular...he works fast and communicates very clearly. I am definitely going to hire him in the future 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.
Howard has a wonderful voice, is a talented musician and did an amazing job singing my 50s style Christmas song. He was very communicative and dedicated and the final product was even better than I had ever imagined. I would highly recommend working with Howard :)
