  1. Review by Michael Sinclare

    Michael is an extremely talented singer with a great work ethic. Good turnaround time and when asked to do edits, had it done very quickly and productively.

  2. Review by Ruben B.

    Perfect to work with; Quick and Quality delivery :)

  3. Review by Dwayne R.

    Can't say enough about this guy. Every demo on his sound cloud was perfect. Not one weakness in his singing. And the performance he delivered was flawless. His voice has great appeal and is easy to listen to. His vocal chain for recording is great and he delivers tracks perfectly organized. All I had to do was put them in and mix. Fantastic!

  5. Review by Ken C.

    There's lots of talent out there, for sure, but you can tell when someone comes along who is just in that highest level of singers. Michael is a rare and special talent, and also the coolest person to work with. Super high quality recording! Works his butt off to give you exactly what you want. All around, that was one of the best experiences we've had on SoundBetter. HIGHLY recommend!

  17. Review by aredus a.

    If it was possible to give this guy 10 stars I would. Michael is a great singer-songwriter. His energy is amazing, easy to work with(takes feedback well and gives great feedback) We are working on a ton of songs and I always trust him to delivery.

  18. Review by Kevin Truckenmiller

    Michael has a great presence and an ear on how to make vocals sound classic. He writes great songs too - a pleasure to work with as well from start to finish. You have to have that in artists, flow is everything.

  19. Review by Maygen Lacey

    A true pleasure to work with! Michael is as talented as they get. His vocals are effortless and make you feel like every word he sings is meant just for you. Fantastic weaver of words that can accomplish anything you throw at him. One stop shop. Highly recommended.
