"Just a quick note to say that while I receive tons of e-newsletters, I always enjoy getting the 'studioexpresso' updates. They are nicely laid out and designed, and have interesting as well as diverse tidbits to peruse. Your 'Profiles' on various industry professionals are especially well-written and enjoyable. (Loved the one some time ago on Alex Patsavas, she's an old friend of mine as we worked together back at BMI in 'the dark ages'!!)
Keep up the great work!
Most sincerely,"

"I just came back from mixing with Jim (Scott) in L.A. and the mixes sound unbelievable! It couldn't have been a more positive experience. He is so great, and we had a really fun time.
I feel so grateful to you for helping me make that connection and getting this done right. A million thanks for your help. I just googled myself...and was so pleasantly surprised to come across the write up on my CD in the Sept/Oct issue of studioexpresso! Take care,"

Thank you for connecting me up with Al (Schmitt). After many years, we are meeting next week. What a good service you provide.

"I like what you guys are doing, but I have a feeling most of us "indie folks" aren't feeling quite connected to most of the topics and the major label/major artist focus of the studio expresso newsletters. If you guys could balance it out with some more indie producers, engineers and bands and smaller studios doing good things, I think it would be a real boost to what you are accomplishing. Thanks for listening.
