Cory is an absolute pro with excellent instincts and work ethic. Cory and I are on different coasts and he was able to deliver amazing tracks and options to pull my project to completion in record time. I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a true professional to enhance any songs. I plan on working with Cory for all my projects!
Cory’s tracks added tone, texture and grit to my demo. He absolutely took it to another level. I’m sure i’ll work with him again.
Cory was great to work with. With very little direction, he quickly got the vibe I was looking for and delivered a series of layered tracks that gave me plenty of options to pick from. Great communication. Quick turnaround. Highly recommended. Will definitely work with him again.
Talented Guitarist! Knew exactly what I wanted & more! Quality work!
