Christian Kinyon on SoundBetter

At 30 years old, I've been playing for 20 years, been a touring guitarist in Nashville, and I recently released a full length pop rock solo album called, Life Is Death. I grew up in Oregon, always loved it, and these days I'm enjoying playing here for a living. Rock, country, pop, shreddy chops, fusion, praise & worship, you name it, I'll deliver.

I'll record the entire electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and/or bass part for your song at $50 per instrument per song. In addition to working as a hired player for various artists, I've done my own original music my entire life, which is to say that I'm artistic, unique, and creative; you'll always get interesting and thoughtful parts from me. My main goal, however, is to deliver exactly what you want the guitar (or bass) to do in your project. Tasteful shred is kind of my "specialization". I went to college at Bushnell University in Eugene, OR where I received my bachelor's in music industry. At Bushnell I became well acquainted with Pro Tools and that's the DAW I still use today. I'd love to work on your project. Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Christian is a killer musician and easy to work with. I’ve been a part of several projects with him over the last decade and he’s brought something memorable/special to each one.

    I've been working with Christian for several years in multiple settings and genres and have never had anything other than great experiences. His work ethic and professionalism shine in every project. Christian's ear for melodies and hooks make him a dangerous weapon to have in the arsenal and his combination of chops and musicality add an X-Factor to songs that instantly provides an impressive sound.

  3. Review by Weber Salz

    I’ve worked with Christian on a variety of projects and he always exceeds my expectations. Whether writing vocal melodies, laying down a killer guitar solo, or doing intricate drum programming, there is no one I’d trust more than Christian. His musical ideas are far from mundane and he is truly an artist in his own right, bringing that same artistry to every project he works on. Not to mention his insane technical facility on guitar and bass. Super nice guy too. Could not recommend someone more.
