  1. Review by Marc A.

    Drew nailed the style we were after right off the bat, we requested a second take on a verse for some minor improvements and he delivered that, hook, line and sinker. Happy camper here.

  6. Review by Nick S.

    This was my first time using SoundBetter. I feel very lucky to have found Drew right off the bat. He's a pro and treated me like gold the entire way. He was very responsive to communication and spent time discussing the track before going ahead and recording. I couldn't be happier. Will definitely work with Drew again.

  11. Review by Justin H.

    Very, very professional. The quality of Drew's work raised my project to the next level!!! I can not begin to explain how well I was treated by Drew from the word "go". If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone wanting to elevate the quality of their work. Looking forward to working with Drew again...ASAP!!!

  12. Review by Steve V.

    Needed a quality country vocal in a rush and Drew was more than willing to help out. He got the tracks I needed a day ahead of when I needed them so I could get the track mixed and out the door. Definitely recommended!

  13. Review by Maciek L.

  14. Review by Jeff R.

    Drew is as professional as they come. His work ethic is as inspiring as is his vocal talent. And wow, what a voice! Hire this guy and he'll go the extra mile for you.....and then some!

  15. Review by Angus C.

    :-( Waste of time and energy, very bad experience. The singer did only one single take and never answered, impossible to communicate with...

  16. Review by Steve V.

    Second time working with Drew. He delivered a quality lead vocal and harmony vocal really fast for a country project I was working on. He's very professional and delivers incredible results. Highly recommend him.
