    Jimmy is a rare and special talent. He's guaranteed to elevate your track, sketch, whatever to a highly competitive level. He's done that many times for us. We always come to Jimmy when the song has a spark but needs someone with the skillset to shape it to hit-worthy status. It's almost automatic with him. Awesome.

His sense of melody, lyric structure, and overall musical skill is on the top of the heap of SoundBetter talent. He's also thoughtful with his notes and direction, very easy to work with, and works fast (at a very high level). HIGHLY recommend.

    Jimmy is one of the few talented and creative artistes I've come across and fortunate to work with. I was meant to do only a song with him and ended up working on a full album with him.
