    Joe is a great guy. I prayed for God to lead me to the best people to handle my song and He did. Joe is a master bass guitarist. He is a real professional. I will definitely be contacting him again for my other songs.
    Many thanks, Joe.

    Joe played bass for the next "Tantalize" single. He nailed it. Joe made the song so much better by filling the low end with some beautiful tunes. Joe is very easy to work with. Also, he delivers fast. Will definitely work with him again in future. I highly recommend Joe!

    I've really enjoyed working with Joe. He's extremely versatile and brings a lot to whatever room he's in. One of the great qualities of him is how patient and determined he is at making decisions that help you arrive where you need to be musically or lyrically. You won't go wrong bringing him into whatever needs you have.

    Joe has been an incredible asset to my productions. He is extremely versitle, talented, and hard working. Often times, he is a band leader for many of the sessions I book with him and his knowledge of theory really give me a reliable set of ears. I recommend him to anyone! If he doesn't blow you away, I'll personally give you your money back.
