"Finally, I hear my music as I always envisioned it. The bass sounds great. It's the first time I've ever done something I could play in the house, car, etc. that sounded good everywhere."
                                                                                                                                                                - Paul Betts  (The Suspects)


"My main bass I use in the studio is a '66 Fender Jazz bass that I've owned since I was 18. After using it in countless studios, I know when it sounds right and when it doesn't. At Kevin's, it sounds right! Great tones."

"Working with Kevin on our project was a smart choice. Kevin's ability to capture the sound we were after freed us to take chances and open our performances up. We got a better product as a result. The biggest advantage we realized was the combination of Kevin's technical expertise and production instincts. We are very happy with the way our product sounds. For a professional job in a relaxed environment, he fits the bill."

"Kevin plays the mixing board as if it were a grand piano played by some of the greatest artists who've ever lived. He's a painter of music and the finished product is evidence of the audio portrait he has drawn. He was superb in producing a product that has had rave reviews and I'm so grateful to him for his professional approach. He truly is the shining star in all of this, but will probably never get the praise he deserves. Thanks Kevin - it's a remarkable piece of art - you really have a master's touch."
