I couldn't be happier with Justin's work. He is first and foremost a great human being, and on top of that he is the finest producer and "extra set of ears" a songwriter could ask for. This is my second time working with Justin and I'll keep coming back!
Will definitely work with again and would highly recommend to anyone looking for professional production!

Finished Project was great. Thank You,Again
Fast and professional. Super talented and great to work with!! Will definitely work with again.
I hired Justin to produce my worship track because I loved the fact that he is a staff writer with Centricity Music Publishing. So he has his ear to the ground getting weekly feedback from industry professionals telling him what is really working production wise RIGHT NOW. Did I mention his voice? Justin can SING. He has a stunning tone and range, and he took my work tape and turned it into a track that sounded like a live Passion conference recording! 5 stars all the way. Thank you Justin!

Excellent work! I don't have to worry about a thing working with Justin.
Incredibly beautiful orchestration for an adult contemporary song. This is my second experience with Justin and once again, he nailed it perfectly.
Hit the nail on the head! Truly happy with his arrangement!
I'm very happy with the track they produced and thankful that they brought this special song to life. Great job!
I’m new to Soundbetter so I didn’t know what to expect. I read about Pearl Snap Studios and decided to take a leap of faith - they didn’t disappoint! They delivered 3 tracks that were in my eyes, magic. I’m not only satisfied with the tracks, I am in awe of their professionalism, courteousness and talent. I truly look forward to working with them again.
Very professional, easy to talk to and great quality!
Great job and exactly what I asked for .........
I have been extremely impressed with how quickly Pearl has been at laying down the tracks and making all the changes I requested. He has been very patient with me throughout the entire process and in the end, he gave me a fantastic production. I highly recommend the talent, skill, and professionalism of Pearl. You want it done, he get's it done.

Great experience working with Justin. His responses were quick and he was very clear about what he wanted. Hope to work with him again.
Justin works in lightening speed! In a day he whipped up an amazing arrangement for one of my songs. He's efficient, responsive and an overall brilliant producer. I will absolutely work with him again. We worked on a country track so I can only review his production on that genre.If you're looking for a current

Interview with PearlSnapStudios
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro Tools 12 as well as Logic Pro. Several Neumann Microphones including the U87. The infamous AKG c12, AKG 414 and many others. Pre's: UA 610, TL Audio, Vintech, Daking, and several others. LA2A compression, Apollo interface as well as Apogee interface. JBL LSR4328p monitors (A's) Even TR5's (Bs)Pro studio environment. Several high end guitars and other instruments.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: writers typically send me a rough version of their tune along with lyrics. We will discuss any references and style notes that they may have and then I get to work. Typical turn around time is just 48-72 hours compared to the 5-6 week average of most of there demo studios. During times of very high volume, turn around may be closer to a week or 10 days.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I think the biggest advantage that I bring to the table, other than great quality productions, is the fact that I am a staff writer with Centricity Music Publishing so I have my ear to the ground CONSTANTLY. I am getting weekly feedback from several different professionals in the industry telling me what is working and what is not working production wise. So many demos studios are putting out dated sounding demos that may be of great quality, but don't sell the song. As a multi-genre songwriter myself, I think I have done a good job at studying the various markets and taken time to learn what is really working production wise RIGHT NOW which goes such a long way when it comes time to pitch!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I do a lot of different genres on a weekly basis, but most consistently I work on Country, CCM, Pop, and TV/Film styles.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: As a producer, I tend to be pretty laid back in the studio. Creating a comfortable vibe in the studio is so important for vocalists but also just for the overall outcome of a project.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: probably survival gear...lets be honest!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen through samples. Go investigate the provider's website. You really want to find someone who can give you a modern sound. That is so important. An outdated demo can completely ruin a good song's chances.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How will you be using this recording? What are some references sound wise?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I get a lot of emails from people asking if I can help them promote their single to radio or if I can pitch their songs to artists for them. I think a lot of people don't understand what a producer does.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: Can I get an instrumental version? A: Sure!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to do music...everyday...what's not to like?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I treat each song as if I was demoing it for my own catalogue. Every song is different. I spend time really digging into the song to create that relationship between the melody, lyric, and production.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. They both have a lot to offer. Analog outboard gear will always be my favorite...I like physically turning knobs. There is something about being able to touch something physically and have it affect the sound. I am a Pro Tools guy though with a ton of plugins and visual instruments so that checks the digital box. I could never be a tape only guy. I respect those guys...but it's not me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Doing a lot of writing and producing!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I have been able to write with and do demos for some of my heroes and that has been really amazing!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think my strongest skill is seeing a song through from a rough iPhone recording to a high quality recording that my songwriters are super proud to pitch!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overproduce! Sometimes less is more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do a lot of song demos. Songwriters looking to get their song pitch-ready quickly and affordably rely on me to help them do just that. I have worked with writers with multiple number ones all the way to beginners and everyone in-between.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: To many to name here. I live in a city filled with amazing talent. I learn daily about my craft daily!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I love great vocalists. There is something really inspiring about capturing the vocal of someone that is at a different level vocally. I have been really blessed to be able to work with some monster vocalists, but I love Tori Kelly's vocals, haley Reinhart as well. I also really like Billy Currington and Dierks Bently. I think any of them would be really fun to work with.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started touring at 17 and did that for about 8 years. Bought my first version of pro tools in 2004. Moved to Nashville at 25 and signed my first publishing deal at 27. I am 32 years old and still loving it!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Brandon Chase is an amazing vocalist and songwriter that I work with a lot. T.J. Carter is another vocalist that I have worked with for a lot of years and she does a fantastic job!
