Wow! Who knew there were people in the world with such work ethic!! From the time we initially spoke to the time he provided me with the final audio portion of our project, Martin proved dedicated, time conscious and professional throughout the process. Not only that but the quality of his production and way in which his voice lent life to the project was superb! I highly recommend Martin for any vocal work you have planned and will definitely be utilizing his skills again in the future.
