"It's a wonderful luxury to have an engineer that can take on the many technical issues inherent in recording nowadays, but also has spot-on musical instincts." —Gordon Goodwin, Grammy Winning composer, leader of the Big Phat Band

"Les is really helpful at sessions. Besides being a great and versatile engineer, he's really knowledgeable musically, helping me catch and correct any mistakes. Did I mention he's technically savvy, has a great aesthetic, and is a sweetheart to work with?!" —Miriam Cutler, film score composer

"His deft touch, helpful suggestions and sensitivity to client needs make Les Brockmann a pleasure to work with. My project had very specific needs and he delivered exactly what was required: artful sonics, timeliness and a deference to the budget." —Joel Evans, composer, CEO Cinemasters

"Behind the board for me at commercial or personal studios, editing from multiple studio sources to create a seamless whole, or overdubbing at the last minute, Les has always come through with a great product. He's the consummate professional, and fun to work with." —Bevan Manson, composer

"Les is a master at sculpting sonic puzzlements into clear, concise, and focused musical mixes!" —Greg Edmonson, screen composer (Firefly, King of the Hill)

"Les not only gets a superb sound, he can find and fix a problem that might have gone unnoticed until much later, when it's too late!" —Dana Kaproff, songwriter

"Les Brockmann is a total pro! He's got great ears. He is reliable & hard working, shows up on time and makes my music sing!" —John Bisharat, composer

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time and attention to make sure every detail was perfect, for treating me with such respect, and for being a great human being to work with." —Lulu LaFever, recording artist

"If you've done your job and it's right in the music, Les Brockmann makes sure it's right in the mix; first take...every take." —Dan Foliart, composer; President, The Society of Composers and Lyricists

"Les knew exactly what the needs for our Punisher project were. He brought his experience to the job and had an answer for every challenge." —Robin Esterhammer, Perseverance Records

"Whenever I need an engineer that understands music from all points of view, from the technical nuts and bolts to the elusive creative spark behind it all, I call Les Brockmann." —Gordon Goodwin, composer, arranger, leader of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band
