On behalf of The Volcanics, I just wanted to say what a kickass job you did mastering our latest record. Not only do you have a keen ear for the black magic that is mastering but your consideration towards our suggestions and style of music was duly noted. A true professional and top bloke. Cheers!

Just a quick note to say 'thanks' for showing up and sharing where you're going with me.

Again, a real pleasure. A great gratification to see where you've taken it...

You know it was the least I could do to hook you up with George [Massenburg] while he was here...
I suspected you guys would get on like a house on fire and you most certainly did. He's been very excited to have met you too... You are one of his peers after all. I know this is the case because he's been raving to me in the car about you as we've been driving around Sydney.
You'll be pleased to know that the two people he's been most moved by while he's been here have been your good self and Richard Lush.
I hope by the time you receive this letter you will have received the tape of The Little River Band. We mastered this on half inch 30 ips Ampex which gives a superb signal of noise ratio and a cleanliness of sound which is near digital.
I must pay tribute to Dave's guitar work which I think is superb. He has given solos of consistently inspiring quality which match a marvellous level of performance from everybody concerned.

Like a trusted surgeon with a scalpel, David Briggs has been gifted with one of the best pair of ears in the business, an absolute pleasure to work with.
Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know the track you mastered Emergency Lover won best songwriting last night at The Music Video Mash Up national awards (www.mvmu.com.au). Thank you for you fantastic work on the track, you are responsible for it's success and we are very appreciative!
It sounds really good David. I am in Perth watching the finished version. You have done a wonderful job on it. Song 8 sounds very LRB.
(Regarding his new DVD "Live", mixed by David Briggs at the Production Workshop)
I use David for all my mastering jobs. His professional approach and attitude, plus a huge wealth of knowledge, make him so easy to work with. His years of experience guarantee he'll get the best results for any style of music.
Thanks to David Briggs at The Production Workshop my CD, "Doors and Bridges" was mastered not only to the technical requirements for airplay but also in empathy with the music and my needs as a performer. His experience and advise was invaluable. Thanks a bucket load David.

Just wanted to say thanks for doing such a great job on the EP. We've just got them back from being pressed and am really pleased with it. You knew what the songs required and delivered quickly and with ease. Your knowledge and experience is invaluable to any project. You are definitely my favourite masterer I've used, and look forward to working with you on as much stuff as possible!
