Hi, I'm Chris. I'm a music producer & songwriter based out of Los Angeles, CA. I've worked with established label artists as well as helped many up and coming independent artists find their sound and break into their careers. I have been producing music professionally for 6 years and absolutely love that I get to call this my job!
I specialize in producing pop and electronic music with experience producing indie, and alternative. I work mainly with solo pop artists by creating full productions around their ideas or demos and help assist in writing/co-writing songs from scratch.
Focusing on songwriting first, my main goal is to help artists create unique music that truly stands out and connects with their audience.
- Full song production
- Vocal editing & mixing
Nominated for best dance/pop record at the 2017 Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
Featured in Music Connection Magazine's top 100 artists to watch in 2018.
Let's create something great together.

Having worked with Chris on multiple tracks I can tell you he is a true professional. He has a creative edge and a total producer mindset. He can turn something from just an idea/demo into a piece of art. Also, an epic guitar player. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a pro to take your music to the next level on any electronic genre.
Worked with Chris on my first EP release ever last year. He was incredibly helpful/insightful on everything that comes with recording an EP to releasing an EP. He's patient with understanding what I wanted my songs to be at a base level and built them from the ground up. Very knowledgeable about producing. Genuinely passionate about music/producing. Definitely working with him again.
Working with Chris wasn’t like working at all. Awesome producer and writer! Haven’t had many producers I’ve worked with that was able to take the simplest ideas and turn them into full blown tracks. He doesn’t leave the studio until it’s finished and undersold his work, definitely will be working with him again soon. Thanks Chris!
Interview with Chris G Wright
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Rob Murray is a dope mixing engineer. If you work with me, chances are he'll be the one mixing and mastering the record.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is to help you write the best song that we can write together, give you a song that holds up to your vision, and provide music that is unique and competitive.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a pretty modern and chill style. I tend to gravitate towards more melancholy "vibey" tracks. Anything that evokes a good deal of emotion.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a small studio in Burbank, CA. It's a pretty simple setup. Treated room, Bass managed Adam monitoring system, UAD things... lots of plugins... pretty much all plugins... have some nice outboard gear that never gets used. I like to work mostly in the box, so it's not all that elaborate.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Do your research. Listen to my previous work. Read the terms. If you feel like we would be a good fit working together, lets set up a time to talk about your vision and see if we have that chemistry(we'll usually both know within 10 minutes of talking). I love helping artists achieve their vision. If I can't do that, I will happily help you find someone who can.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I originally broke into the industry at the age of 18 as a hire-on guitar player for a CCM band. I later became the bands full-time touring guitarist and in 2012, I joined the band as a member. I toured with them for 3 years and wrote a record. That is when I fell in love with the production process. The band eventually broke up and that's when I turned to perusing music production as a full-time gig. I have been producing music for 5 years.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Dark Pop, Electro Pop, Electronic music, EDM, Future bass, Future Pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Production, writing, arrangements, and creating unique sounds that mend it all together.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen to great references and produce something every single day.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. I am a huge advocate for technology and the advancements that it brought to recording industry. Many of us probably wouldn't have been able to afford to get into doing what we do without those advancements. There is honestly no avoiding it. You either adapt or die off. Companies like UAD and Slate Digital have bridged the gap between digital and analog in my opinion. I get the sounds and tone that I love from analog gear with the ease of digital.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to write and make music for a living. It honestly doesn't feel like a job at all. It's truly a blessing.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Macbook Pro, UAD Apollo twin, AKG C414, Fender Telecaster, and a generator with lots of fuel.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hmm. It's hard to pick just one. Either Jon Bellion, Ryan Tedder, or Brandon Flowers. Those guys are incredible songwriters. I can only imagine what I would learn by sitting in on a session of theirs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical process always starts with a deep understanding of the artist's vision with heavy focus on the strength of the song. I always want to make sure that the song, in it's simplest form, can still be performed and have an impact on people. From there I dig into the production and focus on creating a final product that captures the artist's vision with a professional, unique, and competitive sound.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jon Bellion, Ryan Tedder, Brandon Flowers, The Killers, Flume, Odesza, Kygo, Diplo, Halsey, Banks, Lorde, etc...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is for singer-songwriters and artists who need full production tracks and co-writing.
