Musician/Producer

Producer

Chris has made his home studio and extensive production expertise available to Seattle musicians. While anyone can buy decent recording equipment cheap these days, the ability to bring out the best in a song and an artist throughout the recording process in a fast and efficient manner is harder to come by. Chris is a trusted partner who prides himself on making musicians sound fantastic even on a tight budget! He is also a skilled arranger and can provide professional performances on many instruments as needed.
