  1. Review by Greg Johnson

    Trent went above and beyond in what I asked - couldn't be happier with his work. Would highly recommend.

  2. Review by Eric H.

    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.
