Chris Sahlin on SoundBetter

I'm the perfect go to for anyone who needs fast, professional vocals. Powerful and versatile. Full voice power to falsetto. Rock to Ballad. With a great sense of timing and inflection. There is very little I can't nail quickly and professionally. Great Pitch and sense of harmony.

Strong, versatile vocals. Pop, Rock, Americana, and Country. Powerful to vulnerable. Smooth and accessible. A multi-dimensional voice with power and great range. Well versed with multi-layered harmonies, as well as creating custom vocal loops.

Over 20 years of studio, recording and performing live. I record in my own vocal studio. SM7 into Focusrite i8i and into Logic Pro.

I am just as comfortable singing your melody and lyric or taking my own spin on it. depending on the desired expectations for your project. I also can assist with the arrangement.

    I was looking for a very specific sound and energy on this track and Chris knocked it out and gave me various cuts plus harmonies. Song came out great. Chris is a total pro and can' wait to work with him again!
