Chris Rhodes on SoundBetter

Pop Producer with my latest release being my own album that I fully produced. I work until the song is perfect. If it isn't perfect, it isn't finished.

My name is Chris. I am a producer, programmer, mix engineer, and mastering engineer located in Nashville, TN. I have over 7 years of experience professionally, and I have produced and mixed for many artists. I started mastering for artists as well last year. My primary genre is Pop, although I also have Contemporary Christian, Country, and Hip Hop experience. If you need someone to get your perfect song to the finish line, or maybe you just need help with a small piece, I am your guy.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Chris Rhodes

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: My favorite project I have ever worked on is my own solo stuff. I do a lot of random stuff for a lot of different people in music. It was really cool to put a lot of that to work on my own project. I am super proud of it. I wrote, produced, and was the artist on every song.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on a few things: Finishing up a full string arrangement I am programming for a client, finishing up a full production for a client, and mixing a demo.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Absolutely. Just ask me for recommendations.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both have good qualities. I am an in the box producer, so I lean digital, but I grab analog simulation plugins all the time.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That we will both be happy with the final product at the end of the journey.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love music. All music. Whenever I wake up in the morning and start hating music, I will quit.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: I most commonly get asked "What is the least amount of money I can pay for ____?" I always tell them that they are looking at it backwards. You get out what you put in. That is not always a failsafe, but you can bet that 10/10 times if you don't invest enough in your project, you will not make it the best it could be.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That I am just a work for hire producer.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: 1. What are your expectations for this song? 2. What are your expectations of me? 3. What is 'success' when it comes for this song?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Find someone who cares. If they care, the likelihood of you being happy with the end result goes WAY up.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Macbook, UAD Apollo, SM7B, Nord Stage 3, and my acoustic guitar.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been in music my entire life. I went to college for music, and when I got out started writing and leading music in churches. I started in full time music production 5 years ago.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Fresh, versatile, and consistent.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I would love to work with Toby Mac someday. I have always been inspired by his music since I was a kid.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Less is more.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Pop music, Christian music, Country (I live in Nashville), and Alternative

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is the ability to see the big picture. This helps me to see the place of whatever I am working on, and how it serves the song overall.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring a fresh perspective with professional experience to any song.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I typically sit down with the client and hear the vision and then get to work. I approach each project in stages, making sure that we are still aiming at the correct target along the way. I work until the vision is reached, meaning I do not limit revisions.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a sound treated space with various pre-amps and mics. I am 100% in the box with UAD, Waves, and Fabfilter for production and Native Instruments, spectrasonics, east west, etc. for programming.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Ryan Tedder, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, and Jon Bellion are the first names that come to mind.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I do a lot of production for clients: everything from programming synths, drums, and strings, to producing the entire track. I am a vocalist, and I do a lot of vocal production in various genres.
