    Kristal took an average song and took it to a whole new level. She was great to work with, and her turnaround time was very fast. I'll definitely be working with her again!!!!

  • Verified ReviewDefault-avatar5 months agoby

    Kristal is a pro on so many levels. Gorgeous voice. Smart vocal arranger. And she provides an amazing mix! Above all that I'm most impressed that she can add flourishes, enhancements and little changes throughout that all improve the record but keep the original feel. She finds room to do her thing, but it still sounds like your song - just better!

  • Verified ReviewListing_thumb_jive64-20002000logo6 months agoby

    No matter what I would write here it wouldn't be enough.
    Kristal took a playback that I've composed at a sketch level, launched it with an industry level vocal line, insanely well performed and mixed to a whole new level. My jaw dropped when I heard it the first 10 times. Inspiring artist with super professional ability to execute.

    I have searched high and low for songwriters that I could collaborate with and get major label quality but had no luck until I met Kristal. Extremely professional but personable, reasonably priced, and important above of all quality work that will jumpstart your inspiration and can be used upon delivery. Choose Kristal you won't go wrong!

  • Verified ReviewDefault-avatar7 months agoby

    Given Kristal's reputation, I knew my record would be in good hands. Still, she completely over-delivered! It was clear that Kristal took the time to really put herself inside the song. She stayed true to my original vision but was able to bring out elements I hadn't heard or considered. Super-responsive. Kind. Can't wait to work together again!
