    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!
