Richard Testimonial August 2014. “Richard answered my questions about the musical project I am running extensively. You can tell he knows what he is talking about and that Richard is a good professional in the industry. It is important for me to have an A&R perspective considering it is one of these things that are so unknown and he gave me that. So the money invested was well invested I would say… and it is something I would recommend to musicians and managers to get A&R and music industry advice before stepping in places they cannot get out from. He pointed out things that I found really useful and that I am glad he considered in order to develop this project.“ Sara Martin Manager of new artist ION.
