    Martin was the consummate professional in every way. It is clear he cares deeply about not just what the artist wants but also about the artist too & getting to know them. Martin was also comfortable sharing his honest opinion to enhance the process, production & final product & I really appreciated that. I'm so happy with the finished track & Martins' industry experience shines through. What a fantastic experience.

    Working with Martin was great. A true professional, helping me get from production demo to finished master, creating an incredible sounding single. Along the way, he offered great feedback and was very professional in his communication. I would work with Martin again and look forward to the next time.

    Again Martin's work and creativity has led to praise and opportunities from major labels and top executives. Completed all songs whilst in the middle of welcoming his first child into the world! Great devotion and looking forward to finishing up in the studio.

    I started with a relatively complete arrangement of a song and thought that my demo sounded pretty good. After Martin finished working on it, the difference was like night and day. He managed to stay true to the original vibe of the song while bringing it to life in ways that exceeded my expectations. Martin was excellent at hearing my feedback and translating it into reality. From the conversations we had while working together, Martin comes across as a great dude who seems to take exceptional care in his craft. I'm looking forward to our next project!

    Woaaah, Martin is awesome. I chose him because of how detailed I saw he was when breaking down what needed to be done to my track. He is versatile and very savvy sonically.

    He has been very patient with my project and set out to deliver to my satisfaction, he’s been great to work with, definitely a retainer. Thanks Martin!

    Martin is the best producer on soundbetter - hands down. A big statement to make, but true. We spent hours trawling through hundreds and hundreds of producers on this site before going with him, and no one impressed us more than him in terms of his quality and value for money. He is a gifted producer who also offers terrific songwriting advice, and is not afraid to put forward his opinion in a respectful way if he thinks it will be of benefit. Would recommend him to any aspiring artist 100%

    Martin is a true professional. He is very talented in taking a concept for a song and bringing it to life. Although it was difficult for us to get through 10 songs remotely having never met, he worked diligently on my often rough demos to help develop the tracks as effectively as possible given time constraints. Hope to work with him again soon should he have the time. Highly recommended.

    Martin has an incredible ear for interpreting the brief better than I could have ever hoped to by myself, nailing the general sound but also getting down into the nuanced details. Can't thank Martin enough for his high quality job, steering me in the right direction but really listening to what I envisaged. Looking forward to the next project with him already!

    Working with Martin was truly a fantastic experience. He's somebody who really knows what he's doing. Not only will he make you feel extremely comfortable in the studio setting, but he manages to know the right thing to say to get the best out of you. I had 2 tracks recorded/produced and I absolutely love them.

    It was a true privilege to work with Martin. He is a top producer, genius and all round nice guy; and he who works so fast. He was so patient understanding and really spent the time and energy thinking about my demo/song and had a clear vision of where to take it. He helped produce something above and beyond what I hoped for!! 100% best decision!

    Martin is an incredible talent who’s always working with a host of up and coming artists of the minute. He has the uncanny ability to execute any artist’s unique vision and is a true perfectionist. I’ve worked with him on a number of tracks and can say first hand that he is warm, down to earth & a true pleasure to work with. If you want top-of-the-industry standard music, this is your guy!
