Chris Brown on SoundBetter

I am a former Abbey Road engineer with 30 years’ experience and over 40 UK chart credits.

A specialist in live band recording and mixing, I also have a wealth of experience recording orchestras and feature-film soundtracks. I have worked with some of the biggest names in the business, most notably Radiohead, Muse and The Beatles Anthologies with Sir George Martin.

I started my career as assistant engineer at Utopia Studios, London in 1987, and later moved to the world-famous Abbey Road Studios, where I remained for 10 years, progressing to Senior Engineer.

I left Abbey Road in 1997 to work freelance as a producer and engineer, and also as a composer of music for television and advertising. I recently launched a production company providing original music for advertising and media.

Endorse Chris Brown
  1. Review by Zhuang Y.

    Chris is extremely professional and easy to work with. We were having some problems on the recording of one of our songs that we hold Chris late for almost two months — zero complaint. Many of our songs had six or seven revisions but he was never impatient, always tries the best to integrate our abstract thoughts into the final product. I will genuinely recommend Chris to all musicians (especially those with a rock background) who want to bring their recordings to the next level.

    Chris does a good job mixing but drops obvious parts so you don't know if he didn't like them or the song. He also did not go by the full song demo wave file to see intentions on one of 3 songs.

    Chris was phenomenal to work with! I'd been struggling with a previous mix that another engineer had done and once Chris got a hold of it he was able to balance it much better and bring out the nuances that were missing. He works quickly and was great keeping in contact and accommodating whatever changes I wanted to hear in the mix. Can't recommend him enough! He is an absolute professional.

    Chris is really easy to work with. Very prompt delivery, despite several delays at my end. The overall sound of each track was nailed right from the start, and only needed small revisions to certain details I was fixated on. Chris had clearly taken a close listen to my arrangements and mixed them appropriately. I'd happily recommend his services!

    Chris made a cool master mix. He did free of charge master mix on a demo. He showed us that the demo sounds better than the mixed track.

    This is an OUTSTANDING man. We were seeking for a long time for the one who could fit our expectations. He knows how to surprise you even if you are a sophisticated listener, he will exceed your expectations. Your song will be more crystal, more detailed, overall it will be on another level.

    P.S He is a pro, he has strict deadlines, detailed spec list, and, as a consequence, perfect result.

    Chris is a really good mixing engineer. We were looking for a warm, not over produced rock sound and Chris knew exactly how to deliver it. He is also very patient and easy to communicate with. He follows all feedback qnd notes sent to him and is detailed oriented. He made a tough mixing process easy. Would love to work again with him in the future.

    If you are considering having Chris Brown mix your music, you should go for it. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job. Chris mixed my album -- he was thorough, patient with feedback, and brought a lot of creative ideas to the process. The mixes sound better than I hoped they could.

    Chris mixed my album. Very happy with the results. Most songs done in 2 revisions. I tend to layer a lot, but everything is crisp and present, mixes don't sound cluttered, drums/bass are solid, vocals are strong, warm, clear. Response to feedback was perfect. Was flexible to limited budget. No need to look elsewhere next project. 5 stars for sure.

    I tried 3 mixers to find best results and Chris' were clearly strongest. Right from the rough mix he seemed to intuit what I was going for. The rest was just minor tweaks. The results were solid enough that he's now mixing my full album. Also, he's great to work with, responsive and patient with several rounds of revisions. The mix is big, clear, strong. Your work is in great hands here.

    Let me say this, unfortunately I don't have the budget for Chris to mix my songs but I'll tell you exactly about his work. He is more than a producer, a mixer.
    Everything he works on sounds like an anthem. Timeless and never goes out of mind .
    When you hear Chris work from many years ago, Its brand new.
