    Patrick continues to astound me with his high quality of work and quick turn-around. The pedal steel track he provided for my current song is stunning and thoughtfully executed. His ability to understand just what a song needs really sets him apart and makes him my go-to-guy! And he's always a pleasure to work with!

    This was my first experience working with Soundbetter, and thanks to the phenomenal welcome that Patrick provided me with, I'm a true convert! The pedal steel and electric guitar tracks that Patrick contributed to my song are stellar! And just as importantly, the experience of working with Patrick was an absolute pleasure. It was like being in the studio with a longtime band. He immediately understood the song, knew exactly what I was shooting for, and nailed it on the first take! I can't wait to mix this track, and I'm already scheming about which song to send to Patrick next!

    Patrick is wonderful to work with. Not only is he an excellent player but he knows how to fit his parts into your production extremely well, this is so important. He’s able to give you what you want while helping you hear things you might not have thought of. He works in a timely and reliable fashion and is an great communicator.

    Another great guitar solo from Patrick. He's really hitting the vibe we are looking for on our new tunes. We made the right decision going with Patrick on most of the tracks for our new EP. More than worth the price.

    Pat nailed it, plain and simple. I needed som "trilling" mandolin on a track with some ornamental picking and he delivered with a vengeance. This guy is so good! Apparently he plays banjo, steel and dobro as well. Incredible musician. Don't look any further, Pat is your man.

    I needed pedal steel for a song and Patrick was quick to respond and got a track done a few hours later and then revised the next day, even recorded a banjo track. Great experience overall, worth every penny. I'll definitely be working with him again in the future!

    I was only looking for a few pedal steel parts initially, but I’ve ended up using Patrick on all of the tracks I’m producing for a folk singer

    On this job he recorded pedal steel - his playing really is incredible, without being too imposing. He also played some beautiful nylon string guitar parts, and finally recorded a baritone guitar part which he suggested, and was absolutely perfect in bringing a little Ennio Morricone magic to the instrumental.

    This was my second job with Patrick, this time a dobro guitar part. I also ended up with some clawhammer banjo, which he suggested and worked really well. His turnaround was fast, and he delivered really great parts, so again I was very happy!

    What a fantastic experience. Patrick played some incredible pedal steel guitar and mandolin on a track for me - creative & tasteful parts that worked so well within the track.

    He was enthusiastic, and very quick to respond with all the emails discussing the project. He was also very quick on delivery, and delivered well recorded stems.

    I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work with a world class musician such as Patrick.
