    Dude you are a monster. You know this thing. Damn. Where have you been all along. Lets do the album man. My single is making waves in the local radio and all my shows have been really cool. That perfomance track you gave me was dope. And your backing vocals and mixing,sh*. My man

    Dzago, Thank you. I trusted you in helping my child to appreciate her talent. How you involved us the parents was incredible. And currently my baby girl is the head vocalist in her group. We recently got an email from a Canadian songwriter who started writing songs for her. We would really love to have on board as a second mentor for her. Noone gives her so much attention and motivation like you do

    This guy is really good. I think his travel experience helped him so much in easily understanding cultures. Worked with him in Egypt on a collaboration and his energy brings so much peace.

    I wish I had known you long ago. Life could have been easy for me. Affordable pricing and reasonable producer. We can now use our song in our worship presentation. Your energy and ideas just motivated the whole band. Will surely share your contacts to all my fellow music directors.
