"Chris Fawcett is a genius. After recording one track with him, I was hooked and decided to record all of my last abum "Insufficient Funds" with him. He is super laid back but
passionate enough to formulate good suggestions for things to add to the project. After being approached by multiple producers asking me to work with them for my next project
I have decided to stick with Chris. I would recommend him for any genre, any style, any person."
--Dan Bennett (aka Transit), Hip-Hop Artist
