Voice Over Testimonials

Not only is JJ a pleasure to collaborate with, he delivers first class work whatever the scope of the project. In my experience, he really listens and is therefore able to truly fulfill a project brief. His understanding of marketing objectives, strategies and tactics mean his contribution an ideas have been invaluable to the success of many of our campaigns. Two pieces of work stand out in particular as creatively excellent by any standard: The Get RUBiS, Get Going jingle, which proved a great success with the public and our client, as well as a beautifully emotional piece of music for Cayman First Insurance. However, just as important in today's business environment is the smart, efficient and professional manner in which day to day business is conducted. Emma Saba, Creative Director.

Since then, both he and Brian have been outstanding in terms of quality, speed price and professionalism, and they have been incredibly responsive to our needs and deadlines, often exceeding expectations.”

Audio Engineering Testimonials

“Shoestring Studios worked with us on a project at very short notice for a programme we were making for the BBC World Service. The service they provided was fantastic, great quality recording and all delivered with tremendous professionalism and speed. We’d highly recommend Shoestring Studios to anyone needing recording services in Barbados.”

Ashley Byrne, Creative Director, Made in Manchester Productions, United Kingdom

“Friendly, attentive and so easy. Brian has a complete handle on both Logic and Pro-tools platforms. Good microphones and amps. Competitive pricing. Extremely happy with my vocal recordings and the mixes at Shoestring. Did I mention it’s a stone’s throw from the beach and a cold beer with all that scrumptious food? I will return!!”

Nick Van Eede, Cutting Crew

“Since we discovered Shoestring Studios a few ads ago, we have been very happy with the quality of their work and their efficiency in turning around projects. Patience and understanding are virtues of Brian and JJ as they have listened attentively to our simple and meandering direction and still managed to nail the ads we were after.”
