How do I find a great Mastering Engineer?

Hey everyone.. I’m looking for a new mastering engineer for a few clients, mostly Gospel music. I have been using a very well known engineer for some time and am looking for someone who is a little more daring with a more modern esthetic. Problem is, I just don’t know how to find someone who I know I can trust to get the job done to the highest standard without just picking someone famous who charges a ton. It’s hard to judge people’s work from their finished products since you never know how well something was mixed in the first place. Any ideas?

ask your friends. word-of-mouth propaganda is often the best way

I've done a lot of contemporary gospel stuff. Happy to do a test master for you.

If the same name appears in the credits of a few things you like the sound of, then that ME would be worth checking out.
