    5 Stars! Stephen delivered an awesome vocal in a very fast turnaround time. He is professional, super enthusiastic and easy to work with. He delivered a performance that is not going to need pitch correction AT ALL, which will speed up our mixing session. Highly recommended!

Interview with Stephen Melancon

  1. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
