    Tempo is an incredible songwriter and vocalist. I worked with him on a topline/co-write and his attention to detail as well as his commitment to the feel of the track just completely nailed the vision I had for the song. Last but certainly not least, he's down-to-earth, communicative and collaborative. He's definitely a go-to!

I worked with him on three songs and all three songs turned out to be beyond amazing. Tempo understands what your wanting in a song and he completes the task. He is loyal and he will get the job done.

I came across Tempo on this site and thought I'd see what a professional singer can do, man did he ever deliver. He turned a good song into a great song. Highly recommended.

    Did vocals on four songs, and he was professional, skilled, and easy to work with.

    They were all different, but he seamlessly adjusted between R&B, rock, pop/salsa, and rap.

    Note on responsiveness – I never had to wait long for a response. He kept in touch throughout, which helped, as variables were always changing.

    Awesome, booked Tempo for vocals on a Song, and it just turned out brilliant! Ace sound, fast turnaround and most important: feeling for the song! Love it.

    Maaaaaaan where do I start?!! Tempo is that dude!!!! He literally murdered the song. He delivered exactly what I asked of him. He took my track to the next level in less than 24 hours!!! Very quick, very professional sound, very affordable compared with his talent level! You will not be disappointed!

    Tempo was excellent to work with. Very professional! His turn-around time was very quick and his vocals and background harmonies were amazing! He was the perfect choice for my pop/funk song. Would love to work with him again.

    Great communication from start to finish which was worth 5 stars alone. I was looking for a professional to sing a chorus on a song I did for my wife, Tempo seemed like the man to deliver and boy did he ever! Turned a good song into a great song
