Gig was living here in Nashville when he found me on the internet.  I immediately liked his music,  which is probably best described as Southern rock with soul. Gig is an excellent singer... he has a really distinctive voice, and also writes some very strong material. The two-song single that we recorded stirred up a lot of interest in him,  and I hope to work with him again soon.     - Steve H.

                                          When shopping for a producer and a studio to cut my solo CD,
                                          I was concerned with several aspects of choosing who and where.

                                          First off, obviously was the budget. Secondly, a studio that was
                                          up-to-date, with enough outboard gear, the right mics, and an
                                          in-house engineer who knew what he was doing in his room, and
                                          could get a nice radio-ready recording.

                                          The most important for me was a producer I could relate to, with a
                                          wide variety of tastes and experience in the music industry. One who
                                          could assemble the players I needed, and could come in on budget
                                          with the performance I needed.

                                          Well, I found all that and more....

                                          Steve Haggard is now -- and will be on all future recordings -- my
                                          producer.  Steve brought things together for me within the budget
                                          we had, and it turned out awesome. The recording is getting rave
                                          reviews from radio and record execs alike !

                                          Steve was involved from choosing the right songs, to laying down
                                          the last backing vocal, to the final mix-down.

                                          He assembled the players for the tracks, and I can't brag enough
                                          about them... The studio was great, a nice laid-back environment 
                                          with pro gear and an outstanding engineer well-versed in many 
                                          styles of music.

                                          As far as creativity, well, Steve has added some new flavors to my
                                          music that has made the songs even better than before !  I can't
                                          say enough about Steve, he is one of the few true straight-up
                                          people left in this biz. A total good person who devotes his
                                          energy to getting the artist's song done right, no money
                                          motivation at all. That's a rarity in itself.

                                          So, in closing, I will just say this: If you want a great producer
                                          to get you great product, you need not look any further.
