    Chris is such a pleasure to work with. I gave him a super tight timeline to work with for my 14 track album and he not only stuck to this timeline but did so in a proficient, friendly and open manner. He took artistic direction generously, welcoming suggestions from my co-producer and I and applying them artfully. Highly recommended!

    A true professional. Chris Hughes assisted in the sessions for Christopher Youmans & The Sound Agency's debut EP, 'Make Things Right'. Chris helped track a 6-piece horn section, the UC Berkeley string orchestra, drums, vocals, and other important programming. A pleasure to work with He is calm, supportive, efficient, communicative, and intelligent!

    Chris is FANTASTIC! He's all one could hope for in an engineer and mixer! His knowledge is vast, comprehensive, and actively engaged, but what's even better is his innate sense of cool. My band and I recorded a couple of songs with him, and I must say they are easily the best recordings I've ever gotten of my songs! I'm absolutely THRILLED!

    Yup! This dude is the real deal. So into recording and just knows his gear. Can really capture your sound well and also reflect any nuances you'd like. Mixes like a wizard. A recommended Audio Engineer for sure.

    Chris is a super cool, relaxed and easy to work with. He did STANDOFF first demo CD. It has a great sound and mix. He's patient and is willing to go extra miles to get the recording to sound right and professional. STANDOFF will be back to record with Chris in the near future. Strongly recommend Chris for any recording projects.

    We are The Involuntary Jerks. We had thought that we were destined to languish in obscurity and irrelevance, bound, as we were, to 50 gigs of masters which were not suitable for human consumption. Out of nowhere, we were handed Chris' card. In no time at all, he brought the full force of our majesty and brilliance to bear. Dude is a Jedi.
