'Michael not only met my expectations, he surpassed them. My podcast is heavily influenced by and ultimately about the classic movies I love. Michael managed to create me a signature opening theme and an outro that matches the sounds of the great composers like John Williams and Alan Silvestri so closely that several of my listeners thought it was composed by them! It fits absolutely perfectly.'

'I've worked with Mike In various capacities over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed every experience. He brings a joyful, positive vibe to any session and that seems to get the best out of everyone. On more recent projects we've collaborated online where, despite the obvious barriers, he gets across exactly what her needs, and he listens to my perspective. His compositions are truly inspiring with such depth of knowledge in harmony, rhythm and production, and it's his blend of real and synthesised instruments arhat makes his productions so modern and interesting.'
