    Fantastic again! That was my 4th project with Brian, and it will not be the last one. I'm already preparing the next ones. As per always Brain played wonderful drums, and was always where to bring me all what I needed to improve my song. A great musician, and a great person.
    I recommend him, absolutely!

    That was my third collaboration with Brian. Again it was absolutley great.
    He even gave me great advices to help my song get stronger, meaning that he has good, good ears to guess how my own song should sound. And of course... brilliant drummer, very responsive and supportive, gave me a lot to get my song sound at its best. Thanks Brian, you are great, you rock! Hire Brian!

    Further to my first experience with Brian, where he brought me a fantastic drums track in one shot, Brian confirmed all the good I thought of him. Talented, brilliant musician, humble, willing to help. He was very supportive to get my song sounding at its best. A pure delight to work with. One advice for you... hire him!
