Professionale e disponibile .
Penso che Michael sia il migliore tra gli ingegneri del suono con cui abbia mai lavorato.
Michael si e' presentato da subito dedito e attento alle mie richieste e, nell'arco di 30 ore, ha terminato la canzone attraverso un processo di mix e revisione online con me. Inoltre, senza nemmeno chiedere, ho ricevuto incluso nel prezzo tutto il necessario in files per live performances e digital stores upload (spesso non e' da dare per scontato come servizio incluso). Conto di produrre il resto con lui
Very Professional !!

He did a great job on our song (the bowman)
Con i The Bowman il lavoro è stato ottimo, è stato in grado di definire con accuratezza tutte le nostre idee, veramente una persona molto professionale su cui contare e alla quale affidare i propri brani da mixare.👍
