    Third track with Trent... outstanding work, quick turnaround, great partner. We'll do this again.

    Once again, Trent has done an incredible job. I hired him to play harmonica on a blues track. All I could say after listening to his solo on the track was "What the f***..." The solo was an absolute face-melter. I had to listen to it 4 or 5 times in a row. I've never heard anyone play harmonica as well as Trent in my life. If you're looking for a blues harp player for your project, look no further. Trent is THE guy.

    Trent was quick to record, and did a wonderful job with the harmonica parts. He provided a few different takes for me to choose from, and his interpretation of the song was spot on. 10/10. Would definitely collaborate again.

    Awesome work! I had a new country track that was missing that final touch... an instrumental that sounded like dead space to me. Trent gave me three tracks in 24 hours and I am blown away. Great stuff, Would not hesitate to use him again... could not be happier with the work.

    I spent considerable time searching for the "right" harmonica player for my song and Trent fit the piece perfectly. Recording remotely is difficult at best but Trent tweaked the tracks for me and delivered just beautiful takes and were exactly what I'd hoped for for my recording. His musicianship is uncomparable, well recorded and very willing to take the time to deliver what I needed. Thank you!

    Trent did a great job executing precisely what I asked him to do on an Americana/folk track, with some helpful additional riffing on alternate tracks which is likely to serve the song very well. He got it all done within two days as promised and the tracks lined up perfectly.
