I can't say enough great things about Jeffrey. He took the little bit I gave him and turned it into a track that was fabulous. His instinct is impeccable and I cant wait to work with him again in the future. He also nailed it with a quick turnaround time knowing I was on a tight time frame and still provided top quality work. If you're looking for something beautiful and service that makes you feel at ease with your personal works of music, Jeffrey is the perfect musician for you.
