1 ReviewsEndorse Nick Brown
Nick wrote the theme music for my horror podcast Toxic Schlock, and he was fantastic to work with. After giving him my basic concept vision of what I had in mind, he quickly sent me several rough drafts of themes to see if any of them were in the mold of what I had in mind. In less than a week, he had created a dynamic and creative theme for my show that greatly surpassed my expectations. He was communicative, creative, and very easy to work with. I couldn't recommend a musical collaborator more.
