I have made 3 songs with 3 different producers before him, and I must say I am glad I kept shopping around for someone else out there.
Elliot puts his heart into the project, all the way from lyrics to music. I remember our very first session was solely about the lyrics. Where he blatantly told me that they lacked substance and were all over the place. First, I was taken back by it since I had put a lot of heart into the lyrics, but his advice was sound and honest.
He wasn't there just to make money off me. He actually wanted to deliver the best product on all fronts. Once I started re-writing the lyrics, I realized how right he was and his pointers on the story-telling of song lyrics helped a lot.
The recording sessions were very seamless, where the focus was more on the energy, feel and heart with which I sung. There were absolutely no interruption between takes (something that other producers often do) and he didn't overwork me to get that one note right which could've easily been adjusted via melodyne.
I would recommend this guy to anyone. He is a mastermind when it comes to production. The music he built around my song, "Take it All", is pure magic and the editing on my vocals makes me sound ten times better than I sound naturally.
