Roy is a terrific guitarist whose work on my project was excellent. I asked Roy to provide both the melody and a solo for my jazz tune. When I got his tracks back, I was (and still am) so impressed with the result. Not only is his performance brilliant and masterful, I can tell that he put his heart and soul into it. He and I communicated very well with each other, and I can easily recommend Roy to anyone who needs a versatile, pro guitarist.
Roy is a fantastic guitarist. He went above and beyond until we reached a final product we were both happy with. Highly recommend!
Very nice sound.
He created the perfect instrumental for me.
Wonderful musician with great instincts and a beautiful sound. I've been fortunate to work with Roy on a number of occasions and am always blown away! He has the skills, versatility, and taste to elevate just about anything you could imagine having him play on.
I produced a few arrangements of mine for rhythm section, strings and vocals.
Roy played nylon string guitar in all the arrangements and did a wonderful job.
The part was very complex and Roy played it perfectly and was very accurate. The sound was great too and it sat really well with the rest of the band and the mix.
I asked Roy to record acoustic guitar and electric guitar solo on 2 of my tracks in my upcoming project.
Roy did absolutely unbelievable job. He brought up some unique ideas from his own as well.
The sound is very professional and high quality as well. The solo is killin.
I worked with Roy on my remote big band project. He understood the music, chart and his roles in the band then did completely amazing job as the part of rhythm section. I like his how to structs and leads the harmony and comping time feel so much.
I'm also sure he has great techniques and variety of musical words as a soloist, arranger and composer from the public opinion and my thought based on his other works.
At last, He has good quality of recording equipments, I got an audio file on time with correct audio format.
I strongly recommend Roy for your new music project!
Roy recorded a track for me and did an amazing job. He recorded multiple takes which allowed me to choose between them. He is professional, talented and very good at communication. I would highly recommend him and will use him again in the future. 5/5
Amazing performance! Loved the job you did. Thanks
Thank you for your professional and high quality job! Will definitely ask you again in the future.
