  1. Review by James R.

    Trent is amazing, and amazingly fast!! He was born with a harmonica in his mouth! Now I understand why his reviews are consistently so high. We were overwhelmed with the variety of his ability to create different levels of improvisation within one song. We know there are plenty of good professionals on the soundbetter website. But Trent gives so much variety for such a small fee that we won’t look anywhere else. And he will be our top referral to others. Thank you!!!!

    Maybe forth track with Trent (losing count at this point). His work is exceptional... and this time around I was working on a very tight deadline. He beat it. Great partner, we'll do this again.

    by Eli M.

    Amazing job! 3 takes... hardest part was deciding which parts I liked more because he killed it across the board.

    Fourth project with Trent... great partner and just exceptional on the harp. Super easy to work with... tracks can feature or use harp as an accent. Really adds color to the track.
