    John did his magic on my upcoming collaboration album "Blow My Cover". 13 great sounding master tracks. It has once again been a pleasure working with John.

    John absolutely nailed 3 dense, dynamic "art-rock" tracks providing definition, dimension and that ever-elusive sense of energy. I'm blown away, right out of the gate, a huge improvement on the mix. This is top-shelf work, as is evidenced by his resume, of course. He also delivered the project a couple of days early (when does that ever happen?!!). Brilliant, world-class mastering! -WR

    I had a great experience working with John. He answered all my questions, provided useful feedback on the mix, and turned in an excellent final master that both incorporated my feedback and added the right finishing touch to the song. I will definitely work with him again - much recommended.
