    I have worked with John on many high-profile projects and he always delivered great sounding vocals, both on a performance and on an engineering level. His vocal stems are always "drag-and-drop" and just need to be mixed. Also, super flexible guy and fantastic songwriter. Versatility and quality are his top strengths.

    John Clinebell is not only an amazing producer but also a prolific writer and an incredible singer! He has an intuitive ability to bring a song to life, giving it exactly what it needs to hit that next level! One of my favorite people to work with hands down, JC is the man!

    I got the opportunity to work with John Clinebell in the studio and it was creative, exciting, fun, and most of all the product we walked away with was Amazing! The music and production was right on target and exactly what I had in mind, no, ever BETTER than what I had in mind! John is thorough, qucik, and can offer the best vocals you can imagine. If you can get a chance to work with John, take it! You will be more than pleased!

    John knocked my socks off with his production on one of my songs! His creativity was infectious, his knowledge was impressive, and above all else he is also just a great dude. His work tracking vocals was second to none. This guy legitimately knows his stuff. Would love to work with him again soon!

    John Clinebell is so bad ass I can’t sing his praises loud enough. We’ve worked with a few different engineers/producers but the result we got from John was so much better than we could have imagined. He is creative & talented in a way that I am envious of and knows how to bring the song to its highest potential. His process is so fun, welcoming, positive and productive. So grateful to have made this connection with John and also thankful to have access to the killer connections he’s made over the years to enhance our track. He was worth the flight to LA and can’t wait to do it again!

    I’ll always feel grateful and honored for having John on my team. He had a clear vision of how to turn my song into something amazing that we’re both proud of. He brought it to life by freshening up the topline, producing exactly what it needed with the right amount of impact and subtle details, and performing vocals with passion and excellence. The result is beautiful, modern, and well, awesome! Looking forward to working with him again.

    Mr. John Clinebell was a blast to work with. We did a co-write last year titled, The Letter. The process was super fun. John was highly efficient and professional & really helped the song come to life. This might have been the easy co-write I have ever done. I give John 5 Stars as a collaborator producer, singer, guitarist and all around dynomite dude. Looking forward for the next one!

    John first really “hears” what the artist is all about, and then crafts the song production to meet the needs of both the song and the artist vision. That is a gift. You feel heard and valued. A joy to work with.

    Working with John is amazing and inspiring! He is very comfortable and positive to be around, and he gets the job done quickly without neglecting any details in production or mix along the way. He engineered and produced one of my my songs and helped me finish another with full production including his top notch vocals. That second song was just a vocal/lyrical song start phone recording when I brought it in. Now it has been getting interest from licensing companies. Both songs came out better than I expected. I can't wait to work with John again! Highly recommended!

    I have worked with John on over 6 songs now. Not only does he bring the best out of me as an artist. He knows just the right sounds to use. He is the entire package, Producer, songwriter, vocalist, engineer, mixing and mastering. Thanks John for all your expertise, hard work AND for all the extra hours you put in to make these songs perfect!

    John has been great to work with! As a writer he's great to bounce ideas off of to come up with a great artist, and as a vocal producer he's been able to deliver really well edited vocals to me really quickly!

    I LOVED working with John. His energy is contagious, and he's an incredibly talented songwriter and overall musician. We worked on a song together and he did an excellent job of directing my vocal takes and helping me to get the best performance possible. As a producer he is fantastic, he works quickly and efficiently, and literally can accomplish anything you need.

    John is an all-around musician's producer and I can't say enough good things about him and his craft. I had the awesome fortune to be able to work with John on a remote project--I'm NYC based while he's in LA. The ease with which John was able to take my rough worktapes and talk through ideas to eventually make a track that I'm so proud of just amazes me! He is a true professional and one helluva human being to boot :) I can't wait to make more music with him and tell more people that are looking for a producer to look no further than John Clinebell--he's the real deal.

    Cant' say enough about working with John. He can do about anything! He also has great drive and follow through. We all know in music these days it's about quality, standing out, and making sure your final product crosses the finish line. John will help you with all these things. Recommend highly!
