    Hey, this is fantastic! Loved both, think I'm going to use the passive track. Very excited – will surely shoot a couple more your way soon. :)

    Jess is the man! Great style, and great quality recording on his lap steel. Incredible fast turn around, and very concerned about making sure the client is happy.
    Thanks Again!

    I have had the good fortune of having Jess Perkins on my New CD BACKROAD SYMPHONY.I am so excited about this new music because of players like Jess.Jess hears the vibe and with his own style of playing pedal steel nails the part Everytime but also bring such a fresh approach which in turn has given me a sound that is all mine and I could not have achieved that using many the session players in Nashville who are great but on this CD I wanted to step out the box.Jess is my go to Pedal Steel guy

    Jess knocked it out of the park with some really trippy pedal steel licks on the most recent song I sent him. Awesome work as always.

  12. Review By: beardilocks Feb 13, 2018

    Jess played a killer Pedal steel track on the most recent song I've sent him. So far everything he's tracked for me has went above and beyond my expectations.

    Jess you captured the feel I was looking for and once again your steel performance is just amazing.When you mentioned that 70s California Country feel I knew you had the exact vibe I was going for.Thank you for the perfect steel part.

    Jess played some laid down an incredible dobro track on another song I had sent him. I can't say enough good things about his playing.

  17. Review By: deerockcountry Dec 29, 2017

    Jess is truly an amazing musican.I m doing a country soul vibe with a Memphis feel.Jess captured the feel and with the perfect steel sound.I am beyond happy and Jess will certainly be playing on numerous songs on my forthcoming CD.

  18. Review By: beardilocks Dec 27, 2017

    The Pedal Steel that Jess Perkins recorded for my song Made of Stone could not have come out any better. The playing is impeccable and it took the song to new heights. Additionally I had the track back from him in an insanely turn around time (under 6 hours).

  19. Review By: beardilocks Dec 26, 2017

    Jess did a phenomenal job playing Pedal Steel on my song Tell Me Mama and with minimal instruction other than the key and tempo. The quality of the recording was outstanding as well.
