    Working with Adrian has been awesome! He did a brilliant job of mastering a track for me. And just as importantly, he's friendly, explains everything clearly, and totally "gets" the kind of sound I'm trying to create. Definitely want to work with him again! Nine thumbs up!

    Adrian and I have worked together creatively for over four years. He's impressed with his wide range of musical and lyrical skills. He also possesses a very keen production awareness. His grasp of today's musical trends make him uniquely qualified to take on a project and to deliver a first class musical package. Working with Adrian has always been a pleasure for me. I have no hesitation in recommending him and his musical integrity.

    I'm Tara Moross and I handle music for film & TV for Cutting Edge Group. Adrian created a fantastic original song for us for the film, The Right Kind Of Wrong. He not only wrote an amazing song, he was also able to turn it around in the very short time span to meet the film's demanding schedule! I would highly recommend working with him!

    Adrian is currently collaborating with Scope Music Management artist Beth Griffin, they are working on an amazing song together and I can say he's a brilliant writer, topliner & lyricist. We can't wait to hear the finished track.

    Great Writer! We worked on my debut album together. His methods were a bit different to my usual writing experiences but it pushed the boundries of our creativity and with that we gained better writing.

    I've had the pleasure of working with Adrian for years and he's professional and a real joy to work with. Adrian's greatest strengths lie in his great ear for melody and harmony alongside his open and warm personality which allow him to make any work situation fun and light! A real Pro!

    I have worked with Adrian on several songs/productions. He is pleasant end very professional. Not only does he come up with interesting ideas very quickly, he keeps on improving those ideas until we have the best possible result. He's got a great sense of melody, is a top lyricist and an excellent producer.
