No words to describe the work... after year on sound better it's a masterpiece
It is always a great pleasure to work with Elsa, so was this time. I needed full stack vocals for one song, including lyrics and melodies. I described once my vision. And I was already completely satisfied with Elsa's first result, no revisions or change request necessary. The vocals for this song are brilliant, and Elsa's voice is so beautiful. Elsa is super friendly and I wish to have further collaborations with Elsa in the future.
