Dave was a pleasure to work with and very professional. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a creative percussionist and I look forward to working with him again.
Great work Dave. Great communication, with job executed in a timely manner. Very professional. For sure I'll work with Dave on future projects.
A great percussion job by David on an unusual piece. He is very creative and gave me lots of options. I would certainly recommend David!
Just finished my second project with David in less than a month. There is treason I'm back so soon. This guy has great ears. He totally gets the vibe I'm going for. Quick turnaround too. Highly recommended.
Dave is a pleasure to work with and a true professional. I hope to work with him again.
This was my first time working with David and I was really pleased with his contributions. I was looking for some percussion options that would drive a track without a typical drum kit. He produced a series of interesting & unusual tracks that I could layer & build on. Highly recommended.
Brilliant all round. Professional sounding and fast delivery.
I can honestly say: I have yet to have an instrumentalist deliver with as much creativity, thought, and skill. David didn't just play percussion, he devoted some serious time and effort into writing something fantastic. That really says something about his character and passion for music.
A pleasure to work with - listened to my needs and provided excellent ideas, along with a good performance. You can tell this musician is passionate about working with others and collaborate to bring out the best of your piece.
Dave is a total pro. He instinctively knew what my song needed and within a few days delivered layers of beautifully recorded percussion tracks. I now have great sounds and options to use on my song with a live performance feel. If you want something more interesting than a basic drum kit, you should reach out to Dave!
Outstanding job and really nice. he's not just playing, but feel the song too.
Impressive work David did. My song sounds more professional and groovy. Thanks, man.
