    German is so talented - outstanding producer, songwriter, singer and the guy plays great guitar. I love working with him - he's fun fast and musical. We've worked in rock, garage rock, pop, Latin, hiphop and sensitive singer-songwriter - he has dug deep to make meaningful distinctive songs in all of the genres. I'm picky and I give him the highest recommend.

    I absolutely loved working with German to produce my music. He took a song that was so personally special to me and made it even better and more meaningful. He delivered on time with a product that I was really happy with and proud. He was so easy to work with, had great ideas, and his vocal and live instrumental contributions to my project were amazing. He was easy to talk to and available to answer my many questions. I will be a repeat client. I highly recommend German; you won't go wrong if you do.

    As an artist, you need to find your sound & be comfortable. Working with German, I have now found my voice & sound as an artist & feel like at home when at German’s studio. German is Easy to talk to about anything so it makes it really easy to communicate!So far I’ve made 2 EPs with German & hopefully many more.

    I contracted German to do original music for a virtual gallery. What he executed was beyond my expectations! I was impressed on how he took my references and made it into something completely original and cool. I look forward to working with him on future projects.

    I was so blown away after I received the vocal files from German. He was recommended by a friend of a friend - but I was in a bind and I needed a male vocalist immediately. German has a wonderful voice and he sounds excellent in a number of different genres. I spoke directly to him about how I wanted it to sound - what I wanted him to do - and where I felt he could add his own stylings to my song. He worked swiftly and returned vocals that were perfect the very first time. Not only did he listen to my instructions - but he understood exactly what the song needed. German is awesome.

I also do session work. Vocals, Guitar and Bass being the most popular requests. Lastly I offer remote production mentoring, helping producers grow in different areas of their practice.
