A producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and life-long musician, Chris Szczech is music's Swiss army knife. Beginning his career as an intern at Sonora Recorders in Los Angeles, Szczech quickly rose the ranks to become an assistant engineer. From there, he left to hone his craft alongside legendary record producer Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith), engineering and assisting on every project and mix the two collaborated on. In 2017, he then became an engineer for Warner Bros. Records, where he worked with some of music’s hottest names including Ciara, Kai, Laura Marano, Benny Cassette and more.

For over a decade, Szcech has remained in high demand while engineering music for a diverse spectrum of artists, from A.A Bondy to Tiana Major9 on her Grammy nominated song “Collide”. He’s lended his talents to numerous records by Goo Goo Dolls including their 12th studio LP Miracle Pill(2019), and not only engineered but mixed both their live albumThe Audience is This Way (2018) and their latest holiday recordIt’s Christmas All Over (2020). Last year, he produced, mixed and performed multiple instruments on Isobel Campbell’s momentous LP There Is No Other, her first solo record in 14 years which was named Rough Trade’s album of the month and included on their year end list.

    Top notch engineer right here. Knows his stuff, has great gear, and impeccable instincts. I fully endorse Chris to work on any project that you need done! Good guy, better engineer.

    I’ve had Chris mix 10 songs for me now. He’s really easy to work with and has great instincts as a mixer. I feel like many mixers nowadays go for a “good balance” with their mixes and in doing so produce a pretty boring sound but Chris builds his mixes around a certain element in the song which I think gives each song a stronger more interesting identity. I also appreciate that Chris never makes me feel like my notes are an inconvenience. He’s really relaxed and obviously wants the artist to be satisfied with the end result.
