    It was a pleasure working with Shaun! I really valued his attention to detail and precision regarding the creative aspects of producing our music, as well as how on the ball he is - he managed to get us just the right kind of sound we want, well ahead of time! He also exhibits a professionalism and dedication to mastering his craft that makes it easy for you to trust him to do his best for you, especially since he really makes the effort to know and deeply understand what you're looking for! Great guy and I highly recommend him!
