Chris is a mixing engineer and producer. His sound reveals an unshakable obsession with balance, razor-sharp awareness of form, and penchant for bold, dramatic gestures. He has mixed and produced for Capitol Records, Columbia Records, Sony Legacy, Downtown Records, and many indie labels.
With each mix my goal is to convince the song to spread its wings and fly. My hands-on, no holds barred approach is one reason why I've earned the trust of artists, managers and labels. I tend to make an impression, which is particularly helpful with songs that need that extra push.
I will help give your song shape, identity, and lasting appeal.

Reviews (1)Endorse Chris Camilleri
Chris Camilleri has been my ace-in-the-hole on more records than I can count. Aside from his sharp ears, deep skills with both analog and digital equipment and broad knowledge of music, Chris has the rare ability to work quickly and effectively while maintaining good vibes in and out of the studio. When engineering and mixing, he draws on a wide palette of creative solutions, responds well to feedback and is constantly problem-solving so that my clients and I can focus on making music. He has a sharp focus, a tireless work ethic, and is endlessly reliable as a collaborator.
Interview with Chris Camilleri
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The surprise and delight an artist expresses when they hear a mix for the first time.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I spent the bulk of my high school and college years playing and recording in bands and quietly perplexed by the sound of my snare drum in one recording versus another. This obsession became a study for me late in college and I moved to New York immediately thereafter to chase the pursuit of tone and a career in the music business. Here we are, a decade hence.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Above all, I bring a desire for a song I'm working on to be as accessible and as engaging as possible. I don't really 'see' genre when I'm working, I see every piece of music as an opportunity to capture a listener--any listener.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a beautiful little studio in Brooklyn, with a hybrid DAW/analog system which allows me to create and sculpt sound in the most inspiring and efficient way possible.
