    Good experience. I appreciated his professionalism and patients while I figured out how to communicate what I wanted.

    Couldn't have been more happy with Brandon's work. Firstly he was very responsive in his communication around my project, and very professional all around. I found him to be understanding and easy to work with.

    The drum tracks he delivered came back sounding great, and exactly as I had requested. I highly recommend Brandon and his work.

    I've been writing, recording, and performing with Brandon for over a decade on multiple albums and on main stages around the country with artists including Velvet Revolver and Paul Oakenfold. On top of being a passionate easy to work with fellow musician he is a technical mastermind nailing parts and blowing minds along the way!

    Brandon "the beast" Davis is well... the name should say it all. He's a beast but also a chameleon, matching the vibes you bring without coming on too strong or too weak with the beats but just where you need him and as a force to reckoned with. His studio is the most comfortable space I've worked in and am now finishing my EP, couldn't be happier!

    I've had Brandon play on three of my songs to date, including my most recent, recorded and mixed at a legendary studio on Long Island. When we received Brandon's tracks, I was delighted, and the engineer was impressed with the talent and audio quality. After hiring Brandon, I'm reluctant to ever use machines or loops again!

    I wanted to surprise my wife with a song for our first wedding dance and Brandon made that surprise a success! I recorded single vocal and acoustic guitar tracks, sent the files to him and asked him to produce it with a full band. What he returned was an AMAZING track! If you're a singer songwriter and need full band tracking, have Brandon produce.

    Brandon is fantastic. My last two records sound great because his drumming anchors these recordings. Great, easy to work with and super cool dude. He's bringing it!!!

    I have worked with Brandon on many projects over the last 12 years. He is a seasoned session player as well as a great engineer and producer. He can cover many styles of music and is always fun to have in the studio. I would recommend him highly and I will continue to use him on my projects as long as he is willing.... Michael Everett
