A pleasure to work with Mark. Great quality tracks. Very easy to work with. I look forward to working together again soon.
Very fast, willing and glad to make changes!
Mark helped me perfect a song written for my 15 year old. He is a super talented musician, very responsive, and turns projects around in a very timely fashion. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to shake things up with their project.
One can easily hear, and see Mark's excellent musicianship, but he is also great to work with and a good friend to have.
Mark is an excellent musician who has proven himself time and time again as a powerhouse in the music industry. His long list of impressive credits speaks for itself, especially his work in the Platinum-selling rock band Hinder. Definitely consider hiring him for your next project!
