  1. Review by Calle S.

    Cc was very professional in her approach. She took the assignment very seriously and understood the brief from the get go. She had a technical glitch in her recordings so she had to re-record, and did so immediately. I would love to work with her again, she has such an expressive voice, she can do anything!

    Cc was really great to work with. Her voice is soulful and rich. Her musical background is diverse and is makes her lyrics and melodies seem very accessible and familiar. They instantly make you want to sing along. She's fun and it shows in her work.

  32. Review by Rishi P.

    An absolute nightmare to work with from start to finish. I tried to compromise along the way but still had a very disappointing experience. If you have weeks to wait around than give this a go but if you want a project completed in a decent time look elsewhere.
