He is communicative, has a vast knowledge of sound, and judging by our first project together, he not only selects fantastic artists to his label, but helps them craft songs that are so beautiful, it is hard to get them out of your head, no matter what your normal genre for listening may be. Looking forward to working with him in the future.
