    Bruce is amazing! Not only did he provide the best possible track but also did it in a amazingly quick timeframe. He took my concept and blew it out of the water. So very impressed with his talent. Will definitely work with him again. Simply amazing!!!

    If you are looking for top notch quality work completed in a timely manner then you quite simply would be silly to pass Codak by. His work in a word: phenomenal. Everything about the song shouts high quality, radio ready professionally! I am not easily impressed and he did it on the first try! No revisions! Do yourself a favor and use him!

    Mr Carter was a pleasure to work with, he was extremely professional and fast. I had my song in one take and way before the deadline. I told him exactly what I wanted and he delivered. This guy is a star, definitely in the upper echelon of song writers. He gets 5 stars.

    Outstanding:
    Mr Bruce "Codak" Carter
    Always offers an "Ear" of ideas to solve lyrical and music compositions problems. Based on his professional musical background, as well offering sound judgment on behalf of the artist in question.
    Mr. B. Carter takes the initiative and has enthusiasm to push the artist to bring out their musical talents.

    Codak is truly an absolute joy to work with and be around. Not only does he find thought provoking lyrics and passionate melodies, but he knows how to bring out the best in the artists he works with through his songwriting. Codak is a wonderful human being and genuinely makes those he works around better. Hire this man.
