Hey guys, I have a question. I wrote a song for my wife (kind of a Brad Paisley country/pop song)and I was hoping to record it with a band. And someone who can sing, cause I'm not a great singer. Are you able to produce this song with studio musicians and if so, how much would something like that cost? Thanks for your time!

Hey Sam – Sorry I had to run so quick this morning, I didn’t get a chance to say thank you enough. Because of you, our wedding will be very special for both Catherine and I – that means more to me than any “Thank you” can express. The product you made with what little you were given is absolutely amazing. You’re not only a good guy, but you’re an absolute expert at what you do. I think I could sit and watch you work for hours, it was brilliant.

You made a friend for life, if I can ever help you with PC stuff, just shoot me an email or text.

Maybe we’ll do it again sometime, it would be fun to cover some songs that are a bit easier in difficulty and more suited to my voice. Thanks again Sam, I’ll let you know how it all goes when she hears it for the first time : )

Hey brother Sami,
What tune is this first instrumental tune???( first time I heard it)..did you put some subliminal lebanese hoo-doo magic on it to inspire the crazy folks like myself? .lol..some wicked-ass vocal arrangements and melody complete with lyrics jumped out of me that fit it like a latex glove, man. I need to figure out a way to get a rough recording of this and my vocal arrangement/ melody from down here..bet the farm you'd really dig what I'm hearing man. Anyway; Is this yours?...and would you be willing to let me do something rough with it for you to listen to and see what you think?...
