    Merty is a great person to work with.

    He is very professional, and his writing skills are amazing.

    Most of the lyrics was great from the beginning, he did it on one shot!

    If i asked for changing. he did it very quick.

    He didn't stop until the song was done and i was 100% satisfied.

    Merty has been writing for me for sometime now and what I love the most about him is his passion for the projects I bring to him. He really treats it like his own song even tho it's mine, and he typically gets the song back to me in a day or two never more than that ever. You're the man Merty!!!
