John has been a pleasure to work with all around! He was professional when requesting revision notes - timely, specific, and thorough. Looking forward to hearing more music from him and working with him again in the future!
John was such a pleasure to work with. Initially, he sent me two ideas for my song which were both amazing, and then once we decided which one to pursue, he took my feedback extremely well. He really understood my visualization for the song and truly made it a reality. He set deadlines for himself and always met them if not early. I am extremely happy with the final result, and I recommend using John for your next project.

Working with John was an absolute pleasure, super talented and friendly!
John is an absolute delight to work with. He offered the perfect balance of listening to my ideas and bringing his own creativity to the table. It's rare to find someone who can both cater to specific reference tracks AND help craft an original sound. John is one of those people. In addition to his ability as a producer, he is prompt and polite. I will definitely be working with him again on future projects.
It is very comfortable to work with John, he is responsible, communicative and always does his best to help you to achieve the result you are looking for!
