Reviews of Jefferson Parish
The type of dude i trust and give him 100% free choice in writing and he never dissapoints.
Its becoming a synonym to say " Jefferson For The Win"
Jay is the man! He's great at what he does. He really cares about pleasing his customers. He ALWAYS go above and beyond by giving multiple options. I have worked with other songwriters were we get sidetracked about trivial things but Jay is by far the best person I've worked with.
Jay does it again! He's the magic man!
Another great experience working with Jay. Extremely cool and easy to work with.
It was great working with Jay once again! He is very talented, fast, & easy to work with.
I look forward to working with Jay again!
I love working with Jay. He's super easy to work with. Always goes above and beyond, has a really good ear for melodies and arrangements that are fresh and up to date to what's going on in music today and he works hella fast!
Jay is professional, talented, he delivers fast. Extremely impressed and definitely working with him again and again.
As always, Jay has made a very good job! I gave him my song in Russian, he translated it in English. In the result, Jay kept the sence and spirit of my song. It is easy to sing it in English. I'm looking forward to collaborate with Jay again and again!
Once again Jay came through!! This time around I need help with Background vocals that just weren't coming like I wanted and Jay jumped in with a great attitude as always and delivered very quickly!!! To a frustrated songwriter, he's exactly who you need in your corner to break writers block.
Super awesome to work with Jefferson, he really understand music and what you need. Recommend!

I cant believe this, this man a simplistic genius. Crazy stuff, im shocked by his profesionality, speedy and quality. All top drawer stuff!
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.
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.
Jay is amazing! He did a phenomenal job writing vocal melody and lyrics for my track! He was very prompt to respond and the turnaround time was as promised! Highly recommended!
