Only our candidates have what it takes! Will meet & discuss goals first! Imports to be on same page! Sometimes it takes singing or playing the same song & over. Music is fun work! But recording only take once to get it right! Need to hear you. Make your mark in the music business! Please send a link to your music to my email. Or text me for an appointment to meet! Thanks, Louise
