TESTIMONIALS

"Our film would be nowhere if it wasn't for Liam's score. Even watching the film again at the Wine Country Film Festival, Eduardo and I were whispering back and forth about how amazing the score is. Truly is the heart and soul of this film."

Wayne Mitchell, Director (Soledad) 

"Liam's music for Soledad blew my freaking mind! I literally listened to over 100 other composers before him and he was one of the few that stood out so much that I felt I had to do whatever it took to partner with him, and here is! I absolutely guarantee if you hire him for any type of work, you'll get a masterful outcome."

-Kyle Rea, cREAtive Castle Studios
