    Once again, Jay did an excellent job in bringing my vision to life. The melody, the lyrics both fit perfectly with in the track. Again he went above and beyond and gave me options to chose from. Enjoyed working with him.

  • Default-avatar18 days agoby Verified Review

    Jay is very talented and very easy to work with. He really went above and beyond in offering me different options for the chorus allowing me to select one before he moved forward with writing the lyrics to the rest of the song. He understands the theory behind music composition which allows him to create a quality product with a quickness.
