Amazing work as usual! Rock on!
Excellent work! Great results and super fast and professional!
Josh is great to work with, his instincts for what our song needed was spot on! Will work with him again, and suggest you should too!
Josh did a lead guitar track for me. He quickly iterated to respond to feedback and zeroed in on a winning track in just a few tries. He made it really easy for me. I would definitely go back to Josh for any similar needs.
