"It has been my pleasure to have worked on a broad range of projects with Syd Green over the past 10 years - these have been mostly musical, involving many facets from the ground up, including songwriting and music production, through to artistic direction on national campaigns for high profile artists.
Syd sees and hears the angles.... he pushes the envelope with new and old technology to create unique solutions.
Most of all, Syd's most valuable asset, beyond all technical or creative ability, is his ability to truly empathise with those that he works with, to commit to that project as if it were his own, and to bring genuine warmth to the relationship.
Enough said about a man who is not only a truly amazing drummer, an exceptional guitarist, and a rising star in the world of music production, but is also adored by everyone he meets".
Scott James Smith (Artstate Design)
"When you entrust your project to Syd Green you access a resource that takes in all facets of the creative process, from the technical to the esoteric. Syd possesses an uncanny ability to see deeply into what you are trying to accomplish and to gently extract those moments of brilliance which stamp your signature on the sound. Always enthusiastic and energetic, always gentle, Syd provides a creative and technical bridge between your deepest imagination and your music recorded. From versatile drum sessions through to engineering and mixing and liaising with outsourced services, Syd Green will make your music happen for you"
"Syd was fantastic to work with, it was a pleasure and an honor to work with such an accomplished performer, and such a 'generally great guy'.
Syd was very supportive and helped create a laid back atmosphere - allowing space for me to get inside the songs. He gave great constructive feedback without ever dominating proceedings. I like to be more spontaneous with recordings and add things 'on the fly' - something that can be hard to get right 'on the day' but the relaxed atmosphere and Syd's support helped it all flow and move along naturally.
Many listeners have commented on the production, expressing that we clearly had taken efforts to make everything sound good. The funny thing is, with Syd it really wasn't much effort at all. Tonally, I had complete faith in Syd's ability to capture warm, rich tones from his previous work, and it was great to see that eventuate on my record too. Syd not only helped me get near the sound i was hearing in my head - he exceeded it each time. The recording process was all the more enjoyable for it - something I'd happily repeat again and again in future recordings."
Ben Fletcher (of the red sea)
"Recording my debut EP with Syd Green was the most enjoyable and inspirational journey I've ever taken.
Syd is not just a brilliant producer, he's an extraordinary creative force. If there's a sound you want, he wont stop until he finds it. If there's an emotion you want captured, he'll slap you around until he gets it! And if you want to try something different, he'll beam with excitement.
He's passionate, encouraging and oh so talented. You'd be a lucky soul to have Syd Green involved in your project."
"It's hard to do Syd Green justice in words as a drummer/producer. To anyone that likes working with a completely approachable, responsive, encouraging and 'get in the ring' musician; Syd's your Animal"
"A talented musician himself, Syd Green's knowledge, guidance and creativity support the Artist in realising their vision. His passion, dedication and professionalism shines through in all of his projects and it's a pleasure to work with his calm and caring energy."
Corinne - The Singing Studio
"Working with Syd was a terrific experience. He is extremely professional and supportive and he made my time in the studio thoroughly enjoyable. I also strongly value his knowledge and opinion that is is reflected in his amazing work (past and present). Syd's experience shines through strongly when things need to get serious. Syd is very articulate in his delivery of ideas and gives great constructive feedback. An all-round good communicator that is key to sucessful studio time. He is a friendly task master and doesn't take any shit, and he also makes a good cup of tea".
Caroline Miller (Miss Love from Love Bucket)
"Working with Syd has helped to define our sound. His creative and professional commitment has not only inspired and motivated us but has helped us become better individual musicians and songwriters. Syd creates a relaxed environment and it was a great experience spending a week in the studio with him. We are looking forward to working with him in the future."
"To the genius Syd Green.. your a fu!*en legend man, hands down the best producer in Australia, your ideas are amazing and work like nothing else, thank you so much for being a good mate as well, you are now officially the 6th member of the band. It's going to be great recording an album with you later on".
Keebs (This World)
"I have seen Syd Green play drums, talk drums, live drums and music for the last 10 years. It was both a pleasure and a priveledge working with him on the Vonsonic album. His insight was invaluable. You can view him being interviewed on the making of the album here at www.myspace.com/vonsonic. His passion for the job is easy to grasp when he talks about working on the album."
