    Brandon was truly amazing to work with; he was efficient, talented, and knew exactly what I was looking for. He was also able to meet my shorter timeline well in advance and the tracks he provided were spot-on. I absolutely recommend hiring Brandon and I look forward to working with him again soon!

    Brandon was super easy to work with, he immediately understood what I wanted, and was able to deliver it on the first take, I asked for a tiny revision and he did it without any issue. It was a pleasure to work with him, and the drums he delivered were well recorded and clearly labeled.
