Amazing experience! Jason believed in my music from the off which meant a lot! He also put in loads of time & effort into preproduction to ensure the studio time was made the absolute best of! It totally was! Thanks J for bringing your style, skill and passion to my music... Working on' listentoeyes' tracks with you was exciting, interesting, fulfilling & fun on a daily basis; since found myself with withdrawal symptoms! Can't wait to pick up where we left off... 'til next time! - EYES


Jason put a lot of effort into my track, way more than I expected. He's a real perfectionist, and It was a privilege to work with him on this song, Obviously, I would highly recommend him for session work.
