  1. Review by Angelo D.

    Paul is a sonic-master...he has a deep understanding of music, gets obscure referencing and creates an entire aural wonderland. Never ceases to surprise me with his talents, so happy to be working with him - and already looking forward to the next!

  2. Review by Paul R.

    Second time working with Paul and I will definitely be going back for more!
    Listens to my every wish and thought, takes them into concern but also comes with his own fresh and fantastic ideas.
    He produced 2 songs for me this time and they are fantastic. Both of them being unique in their own way but in his magical way they still sound like they are from the same universe.
    I could not recommend Paul enough.

  3. Review by Angelo D.

    Paul is an insanely brilliant musician. Not only do I envy his talent, I respect his ability to guide, direct and collaborate with surgical precision. He is both referential in his collaboration and wildly original in his production abilities - he spent the time to carefully tweak and refine the music so every minute piece of feedback was considered. I excited to work with Paul again!

  4. Review by Nicolas O.

    Incredible producer & truly a pro! I approached Paul regarding help with production on a project I had started, as well as mixing & mastering - he did not disappoint! His instrumental additions to my track took the project to a new level! He was extremely communicative throughout the entire process. Revisions & updates were treated with the utmost care & he made sure he understood my vision & direction when making any adjustments. Truly felt like he was just as invested in my work/goal as I was.

  5. Review by Paul R.

    It was a fantastic and very quick process working with Paul.
    He listened to all of my thoughts, he listened and came with his own opinions on the track and created a fantastic finished product that is exactly what I wanted. I will definitely be working with him again.
    A joy to work with, friendly, quick, professional. Everything you could want.

  6. Review by Rhiannon Roze

    Paul is a natural born creative. Music and art isn't just what he does, it's who he is. Paul is the perfect balance between artist and professional. He is just as reliable as he is talented. I've had the pleasure of working with Paul since 2012. He has been my producer, remixer, writing partner, and most recently, my mentor for music production, mixing, and mastering. Working with Paul is easy. He is patient, friendly, and incredibly skilled. I highly recommend him for your creative needs.

  7. Review by Devin Bronson

    Paul is a master of his craft!! He goes above and beyond with all of his productions, he's also a killer songwriter, a true creative! The first song he produced for me earned us multiple 'sync' placements on major tv shows!! 10/10
