James is the best! I've worked with James on various projects and he's always gone above and beyond to deliver amazing sounds and has put 100% into every session. He has played keys on my tracks and instantly matched the style of the track with his sounds and playing style. James has also done arrangements for my project, and helped me to find other musicians to play the arrangements alongside him. We've also both been hired on a seperate project together, for which James not only arranged the tracks, but produced them too. James Breckon is an incredible, versatile, and professional musician.
