    Zachary delivered a topline beyond my expectations. He was super quick with writing and recording, and the results are absolutely stunning! I'm so glad to have found this man on this website. If you are looking for a talented singer with a super unique voice, you can not go wrong with Zachary at all! One of my favorite projects I did here on Soundbetter! Zachary's singing and songwriting skills are stunning and he is super kind and fast on top! Loved every part of it!
