I had a great experience working with David to create brand new music for a new YouTube channel. We worked together over 2 months, and the finished song is amazing! David is a true protectionist, and I couldn't have done this project without him!
First time working with David and I can honestly say it wont be my last. David answered all my questions in a timely manner, very professional and the master he created for me sounded just how I envisioned 10/10 quality.
David was a pleasure to work with, prompt, professional, and communicative. The quality of the project was top notch, the song he produced sounded great and was fully mixed and mastered, ready for commercial release. 10/10 would recommend.
