Committed and creative, each song I record is a personal experience for me. I enjoy helping talented songwriters through the struggles of creating lyrics and melodies, then providing a passionate voice to polish the songs to perfection. Credits include a single in the new Baywatch movie and a licensing deal through 411 Music Licensing Company.
I became an online session singer in response to a high demand for professional, creative and dedicated musicians around the world. I have the honor of writing for several music licensing companies and movie production companies here in LA, and my goal is to offer my expertise to the rest of the world through online recording and topline. As the music industry continues to change, more and more songwriters and artists are now finding a platform to write, record, perform and be heard. What some considered to be the end of the industry has now revealed itself to be a gift to artists who would have never been discovered had the status quo never changed. This change has also created a high demand for professional musicians. In addition, the internet has allowed for unlimited creative possibilities, connecting musicians across the globe.
I can adapt to any scenario you need. From hard rock to country to pop, I will find the voice your song deserves and create an amazing experience through the recording process and beyond. I thrive on creating topline for artists with songs but struggle with lyrics and melodies. I enjoy understanding what the songwriter is trying to communicate and putting that into words to make the song complete. Let's not just write another song, let's create an experience.

It was such a pleasure working with WestCoastSessions. Chris is a consummate professional. He was super proactive, delivered exceptional vocals within 24 hours of the request. I would definitely work with Chris and his team again.
Amazing vocalist, amazing performer, and all-around amazing human being! THIS is your guy if you want a remarkable vocal performance!
Chris is a dope singer! He hits those high notes like a boss, move over Robert Plant 🤘
I have worked directly with Chris Hodges on over 20 songs so far, all have been done to an exceptionally high standard and in a very friendly & professional manner, in fact his work on our songs was so good it helped land us a deal with a major European label! we will be working with chris on our new album very soon!

Interview with Chris Hodges
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: We are currently working on a full album with a client from Amsterdam. He has hired the full band to create this album and we plan on recording more albums with him in the future, all 100% online!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We will first build a relationship with our new clients, learn what they want and deliver. It's that easy. We're in this for the long haul, not just 1 song and done.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Who are your inspirations? Tell me about what you were thinking when you recorded this? What do you want to do with this music? How can we WIN with you? How can we lose with you?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication and relationship is key. Let's build that first, the rest can come after.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: We have been professional musicians for at least 10 years individually.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take chances. Record like no one is listening. Your true self will transpire.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock, Pop, Country, Americana and everything in between.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Our strongest skill is being able to LISTEN to what the clients want, and deliver a professional product in a timely manner. We have been professional musicians for year, and we bring that knowledge and experience to every project.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Passion, experience and professionalism.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: We like to meet with every potential client and hear their vision, understand what they want to communicate in their music and why. This seems to be a unique trait in online musician companies, most of them do not allow you to talk to the musician. We see this as a flaw, and we make all our musicians available for communication and collaboration.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone who has something to say through music is inspiring. Because we work with musicians from all over the world, we get to hear some amazing, thoughtful and unique music. Then we get to add our LA elements to it! Our inspirations range from BB King to Lady Gaga, from Led Zeppelin to The Weeknd. And everything in between.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: We work with musicians and producers from all over the world helping to bring their musical project alive. Whether you are a professional songwriter or just starting out, WCS provides top level talent for anyone interested in creating music. And this is all done entirely online. Songwriters send their full songs or partial ideas to WCS, and the team gets to work diligently building each part of the vision in their personal recording studios in Los Angeles. After the songwriter is completely happy, all tracks or songs are sent back for a lifetime of enjoyment! It's that easy.
