"Barry is a producer who will push you beyond what you think your limits are. With his artistic arrangements and vast experience, he was able to bring my vision to life. Working in his state of the art recording studio with its cozy, home feel, it is impossible not to record a great project!"

"Barry Best is one of the most sought after arrangers, producers and musicians in the business and we felt lucky to have him work with us on our documentary. His attention to detail and superb sense for what sells have helped us as we continue to pitch this project in advanced talks with TLC, A&E and the Oprah Winfrey Network. He's the real deal."
Former VP of Business Development, Indiloop Media, Inc.
"Barry has been my friend and musical colleague since the mid 80’s. His musical knowledge is unsurpassed by anyone that I have ever met. His arrangements are intuitive, soulful and precise, and your project could not be in the hands of a better producer."

"Barry, you did a wonderful job...that's not an easy situation to be in...not enough rehearsal time, clock running on the studio, additional "helpers" via Skype.... You were the picture of cool and control and I credit you personally with getting the performances we needed and making the choir sound great. You also worked tirelessly and with such a great attitude throughout that it kept the singers energy up as well. I was VERY grateful we had a pro with big ears there, and I'd be happy to work with you again."

"Barry’s work on a song for my human rights nonprofit went far above and beyond my expectations. His level of care and creativity made it clear that he was as passionate about the project as I was and the finished song will be the perfect vehicle to help us spread our message and position us as professionals who are worth supporting. I would highly recommend working with Barry."
