What people are saying

Tell us what you think

Chris does exceptional work.

He takes his time and is always professional. Working closely with Chris is a learning experience, just as it is a recording experience.

You will learn something new every day about sound and gear with him.

He can produce something to sound like a Top 40 pop record, as well as dirty and grungy, but he always allows the human element to flow onto a recording. Feel and innovation are what fuels his studio’s energy, and he will mix and master it until the artist feels it to be complete. Communication is also one of his fortes. He mixes and masters from afar (should an artist not be present in the studio) and will send frequent updates of the recording to see if the artist feels with how it is coming along. With years of experience, and with a heart of gold, Chris won’t let you down.

Bob Batek's text about the Recording I did for Michale Graves 

Michale says and I quote 

"I listened to the CD and it was tremendous. What an incredible job. Some of these assets will probably come in handy in the future and if so I will reach out for proper credits" So not only does he love it but may want to use it...great job
