    Thomas is FANTASTIC. This is the second gig I've done with him. He's quite good at producing songs that sound almost exactly like the original. He's pretty communicative as well. HIRE HIM! You won't regret it.

    Thomas with SA Central is the kind of Soundbetter collaborator that everyone wants to work with. He has a true talent for producing, is very kind and easy going, and is the most professional communicator I have worked with. This allowed for a very smooth and easy process. I hope to work with him again sometime.

    It was great working with Thomas! He was great at communicating what he wanted and also let me take some artistic liberties with the song.
