           Really professional, quick turn around and a really cool guy."

"Derek Palmer has been an absolutely invaluable asset to my work. Not only has he provided me with music that would qualify for Hollywood productions, but he's also taken the time and care to explain a number of different options to me. He is a guy that goes above and beyond. I haven't yet found something that he can't do. Just phenomenal."
