World class bassist, creator of sonic worlds, track finisher. Contemporary R&B+Hip Hop, Electronic, Alternative.
As a bassist, I've had the opportunity to extensively perform and record domestically and internationally, notable performances at Madison Square Garden, Newport Jazz Festival, and Blue Note Tokyo. I've been featured on recordings in many styles including but not limited to R&B, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop, Blues and Country and I'm equally comfortable on electric, upright and synth bass.
As a producer, I've helped bring songs to life for artists across a wide range of styles. My main goal as a producer is creating a sense of unique inevitability- creating an arc so that everything singe piece of the track feels perfect and irreplaceable. I find that this is the quality which maintains a listener's interest over the course of may listens.
Wherever you're at in your process, whether we're starting from scratch, or with an iphone demo, or a full production that needs finishing touches, I'll give you quality results. I'll communicate quickly and clearly, with bass stems within 2 days or a full production first draft within 4 days. I will include several ideas for bass parts and consult you throughout the process so you get something you are super happy with.
I have a studio in Brooklyn where I can record bands as well, contact me for more info on that.

Chris was such a breeze to work with. Communication was on point & he presented me with more than what I had imagined for my project.
A musical gem for sure! :)
Working with Chris is a fantastic experience. He has a great intuitive feel for how to elevate the music and works diligently to get it done RIGHT. He provides a great environment to work and be creative in. Highly recommended!
Chris is a super talented and versatile bassist and producer. Not only is he an absolute joy to work and collaborate with but he knows how to hear out and hone in on each artists' sonic vision. You can tell how fluent he is in so many genres but it never takes away from how innovative his musical instincts are in any given project. Chris is a great communicator, collaborator, super chill and excited to get it right with quick turnarounds. I'm grateful to work with him and would recommend him in a heart beat.
