great to work with. very willing to satisfy the customers project needs
This man is incredible. He did exactly what I wanted and better than I expected. In love with his work.
Great quality vocals! He cares and understands his clients situation. If you don't have any topic of the song, he can write you one quick by feeling the vibe of the beat. Wooh! hope to work with Reggie again in the future.
Very talented in many ways and has the drive to not only get you lyrics to fit your song perfectly but he’ll also make sure there is a vibe. A feeling to it. Amazing job.
Great experience working with Reggie, highly recommended!!!
Reggie is an extremely talented vocalist and writer with versatility beyond imagination- after working with him on several different occasions, I cannot help but to recommend him to each and every artist that I cross paths with. Be sure to contact him soon, as his availability is guarenteed to become more difficult to find in the near future.
