There has been no single greater influence upon me as Will Ackerman… as a producer he has conjured from my writing and performance capabilities nuances and emotions that I was not even aware existed let alone believed I could capture. He does this (what appears) effortlessly and with a wry smile that tenderly suggests “I told you so”. Ackerman is a staggering example of a true musical voice and visionary unparalleled in his abilities. Working with him has been one of the most tremendous honors of my life.
" It's a challenge to find just the right elements that enable an artist to create a musical statement from a few rough ideas. Capturing them with clarity and authenticity so they may be shared for years to come is an even greater challenge. Will Ackerman achieves precisely that. This magical symbiosis lies in not merely his technical expertise [acquired honing his craft over more than thirty years], but in his ability to literally inhabit a melody and navigate a rhythm in order to reproduce music worthy of your artistic vision. He has produced a body of work that has exceeded all of my expectations. "
" Will Ackerman sets a gold standard of recording music. His years of experience, refined ears, sensibility and emphasis on the dynamic emotional content of the music created a foundation to help bring my musical ideas to their full potential. His network of musicians is of the highest quality and his warmth and personal approach made my time with him both fun and effective. "
