Chris is professional and nice to work with. He provided great playing and a quick turnaround time, too.
i have worked with Chris on numerous occasions always with great results. fast working and great ideas with a lovely feel. Highly recommend!
I worked with Chris on a piano-driven piece that needed solid timing and finesse. He delivered a gem - one-and-done (one take) and it was perfect. I really loved his work method - he sent a clip to ensure it was on the right track - and it absolutely was! Thanks a ton, Chris. I'll be calling on you in the future.
Chris is a wizard. I can always count on him to give me whatever I need keyboard-wise for the songs I'm producing. He always has a quick turnaround time, gives me feedback on my songs, and helps sweeten them to the best they can be. If you think your song is already great, Chris' playing will make them even better, I guarantee it. Recommended!!
Chris did a great job, wonderful sense of melodic phrasing, and a true pro to deal with---work was completed without delay and communication was great. Strongly recommend hiring Chris, he is a talented individual who will breathe new life into your tracks.
Chris is one artist who is reliable in terms of a quick turn around time and the effort he puts into his work. He is versatile and is ready to work on styles that he is not too familiar with too. I highly recommend him.
Very nice piano player, very easy to work with! Working very fast! I can only recommend.
Interview with Chris Frick
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My goal is always to deliver the best possible keyboard tracks that fit the song and the style you're going for.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Getting paid to make music. What more could I ask for?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have all the information you need ready. File formats, sample rate, bit depth, BPM of your song. That way musicians can just create a new session in their DAW with your specifications, drop in your rough mix, and start working right away.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacBook Pro, Sony MDR 7506 headphones, Focusrite interface, an 88 key MIDI keyboard, and my Les Paul.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been a musician for over a dozen years. I started doing session work about 3 years ago.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Your recordings will never be great if you don't have a good song to record.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I operate in many musical circles. Rock, pop, punk, mellow singer/songwriter styles, jazz, free improvisation, classical music. I'm versatile.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening. I'm all about getting the right vibe for a particular song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, solid rhythmic command, and a style that matches what you're looking for.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: MIDI controller, Logic Pro, and virtual instruments from Native Instruments, Apple, and others.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of my work with clients involves piano tracks for songs. I've also done a fair amount of work with cover songs. One thing I've been especially successful with is creating acoustic cover arrangements with piano/Rhodes, strings, and bass. It's easy for a guitar player/singer to record their parts over that and have a solid cover track.
