I needed Isaiah to breathe some HUGE life into vocals for a piano demo and he killed it! He found the perfect approach to getting some of himself in there as an artist while balancing the need to play it straight for a reference track. Took my backgrounds to the next level, helped vocally produce some parts where he thought the song could shine more. Vocals were super clean and THICK. Fast turnaround, easy to work with. Definitely recommend you hit him up!
Great voice, quick turn around time. Flexible and easy to work with. Look forward to working with him again in the future.
He did a hook for my record and brought it up multiple levels! Easy to work with and is quick to match the vibe you want. Very professional and talented! Mos def would work with him again and refer him to other musicians!
This guys concepts are so dope! Not sure how he comes up with it!!! And his turn around time for a full song is super fast! If you want a hit - def check him out! He wrote a song for me and it’s numbers are going crazy!!! 5✨

I’ve been blessed to work with him briefly on my last single release and it was nothing short of brilliant.
