Alan Silverman @ Aerial Sound on SoundBetter

From our artists, in their own words: “I don’t know what the differences are, but when you got done I loved the way it washed over my skin.” "The end result is brilliant and surprising. I'm not even listening with my ears anymore but with my breath and the master makes me breathe deep. It’s absolutely unreal!” “It sounds FINISHED.”
