Hello! I am a touring and session guitarist based in Nashville, TN. I've toured with major label artists from Warner, Columbia, Sony, Universal etc. Also players from The Offspring, Dashboard, Avett Bros, Nappy Roots. Guitar is my passion. I spend all my time recording, performing, and learning! I will work with you to achieve your vision.
I record electric and acoustic guitar for many types of projects ranging from full albums, demos, commercials, film, songwriter demos, and my own productions. When we talk, we will discuss everything beginning with your vision for the track. We will talk about tones. You might say - "I want a Ryan Adams vibe." I'll break out my 1968 Princeton Reverb and get that sound for you. You can send me melodies of yourself singing a hook idea, and I can take it and make it a signature lick for the song. I'm here to translate your ideas and vision to tracks.
I will track guitars at my studio full of guitars, pedals, nice mics, and preamps. If you would like me to travel to record on an album or project in person, I'd love to discuss the details with you. I'm here to be an asset to your music. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Thanks for your time!

Reviews of Chris Loocke
OUTSTANDING! Can't say enough good things about Chris. Quick, super easy to work with, killer musicianship, the list is far too long.
working with Chris was great. He was very professional. He was very easy to work with and a really cool down to earth person and super funny. He layed down awesome tracks without ever even hearing the songs beforehand. It was like I had been playing in a band with him for 15 years . He wrote catchy guitar hooks that really brought the songs to life
I have hired Chris to play on many demo sessions and he has nailed it every time. He's extremely easy to work with. Willing to work with you, and convey your vision. He lets you lead, and translates with his instrument.
...get great results playing on a song together. (this got cut off from my original review)
As a bassist, working with Chris on a track is very engaging. He occupies space in the mix while simultaneously leaving enough space for the rest of the instrumentation to maneuver and play off the melodic hooks he creates on his instrument. We always seem to be cracking each other up, yet somehow we find ways to
As a producer here in Nashville, I am under certain pressures concerning the musicians that I hire for session work. There are so many musicians to choose from in this town and Chris really provides a truly eclectic sense of musicality, facility and tone. If I can stop laughing while he's around, we get incredible results together.
