Mixing, Session Musician/Vocal

Chrishawkes on SoundBetter

I really enjoy the process of helping songwriters and musicians explore and capture their otherwise indescribable stories into sound recordings. My favorite result to reach is for a musician to feel the most high quality, true representation of themselves and a listener to have an unforgettable connection to it.

I started off as a teenager with an analog four track, listening to my favorite records and trying to deconstruct and then recreate what instruments and sounds created my favorite songs. I learned the process of production and mixing by years of emulation that led to my own experimenting and methods. Then I studied engineering and sound editing processes at the Dallas Sound Lab, interned at Reel Time Audio with a Grammy award winning producer who consistently got bold, big sounds and worked for the University of North Texas Music School where the focus was capturing the purest version of a live performance.
Fifteen years making a living recording other acts and my own projects while splitting time as a touring musician have formed my experience and love for helping artists create and construct their own dream version of the songs in their head.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
