    It was a privilege to work with Shihori on her song! She's a total pro - an amazing songwriter with massive vocal skills - the kind of artist any producer would love to work with. She came with a clear vision of what she wanted for her song, and communicated her ideas perfectly. It was a pleasure working with her!
