Professional, patient, and cool. He was very easy to work with. Stereo did a very good job in editing, mixing, and mastering everything. We are very happy with the final masters. Highly Recommended! Looking forward to our next projects.
Incredible producer, songwriter, mix engineer, and vocal producer! I've worked with him for 20+ years. Stereo is one of the BEST!!! We've worked on projects for Disney, Ramsey Lewis, Rhianna, Nike, Miller, McDonald's, Sony, Warner Bros., and many others. You can't go wrong here!
As a producer I love it when an engineer gives me back more than what I gave him and adds elements that I didn't even think of but love. He has an understanding of music that inspires me.
I have shadowed w/Stereo many times. I was just at the starting stages of becoming an Engineer myself. He taught how to look at music at a different perspective, told me it's more than just understanding the technical aspect of the music process in the studio. His understanding of his craft is unmatched
Stereo does exceptional work and he's a pleasure to work with. He always goes beyond the call of duty when getting the job done. I've used him on several occasions and my experience with him gets better every time. Some of the best ears in the business!
I have worked w/Stereo on multiple occasions & as a song writer w/vocal ability that leaves much to be desired, Stereo was able to turn vocal water into WINE! He is an amazing! Every one that I have referred him to From producers such as Lee Major (Rick Ross, Tamar Braxton) to Keith Harris (Black Eyed Peas, Meghan Trainor) marvels at his work.
