DQ found a great singer for my song and took the time to understand my vision and put together a great vocal production. I'm excited to work with him again!
DQ is the dopest ! He is a super incredible songwriter, and a master at vocals and vocal production. His cuts speak for themselves, and whatever he delivers, I know it will be top-notch. Will work with him again and again !
Studio Q is an amazing place to be. DQ and his team offer every service a client needs to take their song to the top. Whether you need vocal recording, vocal editing, mixing, or mastering, you will be blown away by how professional DQ makes you sound! Can't wait to work with him again!
Studio Q is a very professional and well run studio, by DQ. If you are in Los Angeles and looking for an affordable place to create, this is your spot. Not only does he have top grade engineers and gear, DQ is the vocal production MASTER! I've seen him transform one of my client's voices completely. Will definitely be working with him again.
DQ is literally one of my favorite songwriters and vocal producers. He always makes my vocals sound amazing and the songs we've written together are some of my favorites! I highly recommend him!
