Here's what these kind people have said about working with me, my personal role, and well as the one of their tracks!

"Working with David was so much more of an experience than I could ever have asked for. Through his love of music and overall kindness he brought to life the ideas for my music in a way that was effortless and wonderful, making him everything an artist should look for in a producer."

"Working with David has been one of the most enriching learning experiences I've had as a creative, to date. He is also one the most gracious artists I've met. He’s diligent, honest, and has the kind of grit and integrity that many professional artists spend half of their careers developing. If anyone is in search of a producer who can always be counted on to put their heart and soul into the process of making incredible music, David will not disappoint."

In late 2015 we embarked on the journey of making our first full length studio project, “Anchors Aweigh”, and of all the people that we worked with David Platillero certainly left one of the most prominent fingerprints! Something that I noticed off the bat was his ability to hear and understand what we envision for a song and we never had to worry about hitting roadblocks, Arrangement wise because he seems to have inspiration on tap and the skills instrumentally (keys, guitar, sax, etc.) to execute whatever ideas may come about. Our personal favorite thing about working with David is his ability to make anyone feel completely comfortable in a studio setting, which I think is the key for capturing gold. We started this project with a studio engineer/musician and ended up with a close friend.
Auburn House of Prayer
Engineer, Mixing, Mastering
“Our church recently produced a major worship project/album with local artists and musicians at Auburn University, called “The Firefall Project”. It was a “live event” recording held in the heart of Auburn’s campus. We needed someone who could master the unique space we were in, capture the sound and edit the songs in a high quality way. Through a mutual friend, David was referred to us as the guy for the job. David did exceptional work and with an amazing personality and an ability to really work well with others. David nailed the dynamics of the room, professionally facilitated the evening sound-wise and ultimately got the recording exactly the way we wanted. On the backend of the project David worked tirelessly doing overdub work in the studio, engineering all the fine tuning of each track and working with us to make post production edits.
It was a great experience working with David. He did everything with a super positive attitude and in a professional and timely fashion. We highly recommend David to anyone else and really look forward to working with him again...hopefully soon!”

"Working with David has been the utmost pleasure! He was supportive and on board from our first meeting about the potential of the project. His communication was very clear in his capabilities, ideas, expectations, and even scheduling. The atmosphere for the actual recording was relaxed, but productive. The use of our time was on point for the balance of open creativity and desired progress. David was always open to questions and full of encouragement. I look forward to my personal future projects and would highly recommend his production to anyone considering taking that step toward their own album."

"Working with David has been an extraordinary gift. David is excellent at what he does. I could bring a song to him every time knowing that I can fully trust his ability to build it up to its full potential. Working with David was a great experience and I look forward to future projects with him."
Absence of Repose
Producer, Engineer, Mixing, Mastering, Acoustic Guitar, Piano
"Working with David was an experience like no other. With it being my first time recording in a studio, it really helped to have someone as knowledgeable as him. From the get go, he was completely on board and supportive, and his creative input was invaluable. The final product was everything I could have hoped for."
