Quick turnaround, professional, great communication, attention to detail, and last but not least, an AMAZING voice!
Will definitely work with Valerio again.
Valerio made me feel at home, I wasn’t too good with singing or music playing, but I never felt judged, he encouraged me and gave me really good advise in a constructive way. He was able to create the song on piano that I was trying to play on guitar hahah. He’s awesome at music, and knows his stuff. His passion and heart shows in everything he does. Highly recommend. X
I have worked with Valerio for several different projects. He is an incredible songwriter and singer and he has so many interesting and unique ideas. On the last project I worked with Valerio, he did an amazing job at the arrangement and his knowledge of music is clear. I would definitely recommend him.
I've worked with Valerio on a few projects. He has recorded vocals for my songs remotely and toplined some of my backing tracks. He's a great singer and songwriter, and the quality of the recordings from his studio is perfect!
