  2. Review by Nicholas S.

    This guy is awesome. Came up with a intro that really made the song great. Sent him 3 different songs of different styles of music. He hit it out of the park with all three different styles. Great tone and great creativity. It really is awesome working with Ilan..I highly recommend using Ilan!!
