(Music Editor/Producer, currently working at Word Music. On the side, I write music, play cello on sessions, have two of my own CDs, transcribe/engrave music and anything else that I can do to make a living!)
Hey Paul, I'm nearly done mixing the project you played on for me. Thanks so much for adding cello to our stuff. The artist is real happy, and of course I am, too. You have a great tone, great ideas, and a wonderful attitude.
