    Martin has been so patient with me on this project because I was unable to pay and record as punctually as I normally would. But I am a repeat collaborator for a reason—his work is outstanding and the quality he delivers is one any artist at any level can count on. Make that connection with him and see where it takes you!

    Martin Hollis completely transformed my song into something extraordinary. I've written many songs, but the song Martin worked on was important to me and I wouldn't choose anyone else. His musical ear is quite gifted - he knows what will work, and you can absolutely trust him to make your music bigger than what you could imagine. He will be my go-to producer from now on. Amazing producer!

    I am very happy to have had an opportunity to collaborate with Martin. He is super professional, he produced exactly the song that I imagined for myself, the lyrics are so touching and speaking my mind and soul. He made a lot of revisions accordant to my notes, very patient and encouraging. Always in touch and listening. Grateful for the song and grateful to have met such a great producer.

    Martin really allows your vocals and melody to shine, above everything else in his production approach. He's tasteful in the instrument choice, really has a clear direction sonically, and is willing to be flexible in altering any modifications you may want to change for the mix. He's a professional, he knows what he's doing and I love that!
    Thank you, Martin! I'm so pleased with the entire process--what a joy!

    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.
