I had a great experience with Phoenix! He was very efficient and focused on the project the WHOLE time we were recording! I recommend him to anyone in the area if you want a professionally recorded track! AC
I can say this kid has a ton of talent and deserves everything he's received. I've been in the studio with him and it's always hard work and making what people want to here. I suggest you make time to work with him as well. He has great character and is a great producer/engineer.
This been my lil bro since day 1, makin tracks in the basement w disney mics and matresses behind the pop, come along way brother, and my tracks are all credit to you.
He is great to work with! Very efficient and he really knows what's he's talking about. I have yet to be disappointed with a beat, mix, or song from Tim!
Pheonix is a very good engineer he has help me alot in learning more about music... he got a good ear for music and helpful pointers. He is excellent to work with ..
Phoenix is a great engineer, he has mixed an mastered a few track team genius has giving him and they all came out amazing. he has his own things he adds that make them perfect. keep it up bro!
Gave me hit songs the first two times I went to him def if you need a great producer in the 518 contact him ASAP
Tim dope as hell! Mad easy to work with, persistent, dedicated, motivated, all about making tracks sound perfect! 💯🔥
Let me get the bad out of the way first
Phoenix is a money getter
He'll bargain with you on prices but once he feels used up and taken advantage of he'll switch to an alligator impulsive and dangerous.
On the bright side Phoenix is the best Engineer I've experienced in my music career.
Tremendously dedicated to crafting an artists music. 💯
