    David was great to work with; polite, timely and diligent to get the song right and the end result was very strong. I was not prescriptive at the outset so he could explore the track as he heard it. He quickly came back with a first version that was comprehensive and captured the essence of the song, making it easy to add the vocal part and the rest was about adding details and tweaking, which he executed very well.

    I don't even know where to start! David was absolutely amazing to work with in every way! The creative vibe/energy was amazing- he is extremely talented, easygoing, helpful, and responsive. This was my first record after taking a long hiatus from the music industry, and I couldn't have asked for a better producer/engineer to help me believe in myself again. I cannot wait to work on 100 more records together!

    He's very professional. But what's more important than that is that he's a great producer. He knows what sounds to pick to best compliment the song and the voice. I'm happy to have worked with him.

    I am really happy to got David as a producer with a lot of knowledge of all genres.
    He knows the classical instruments also like the electronical direction and
    knows how to take the best out of both worlds to make your project the best it can be.
    David also knows a lot of the music industry and is willing to give you informations from A to Z

    Not only is David talented but is capable of inspiring writers to see things in a different perspective. Not afraid of taking risks, understanding emotions, and the importance of words and sounds, David helped me write a song that I was never able to see throw my own eyes. I'd recommend David if you are looking for next level productions, writing, and challenging yourself to be a better artist.

    I have worked with Dave on many projects and I can honestly say that he is extremely talented, hard working and always delivers. Every project that he has worked on for me has been of stellar quality and the thing I like the most is his versatility to work across multiple genres.

    I've recorded on over 100 records. I worked with Dave on quite possibly my favorite sounding of all of them. He's a hard worker who's only priority is making the artist sound great. One of the best in NYC, hands down. Hire him!
