I am Chris Hoyt, I have been a musician since 1994 and I play: guitar, drums, bass guitar, keyboards and percussion. I have been recording since about 1997 and thats when the audio addiction began! I studied Electronic Music and Pro Tools production in 2000 @ Ohlone College in Fremont, CA and later studied at CRAS, in Tempe, Arizona in 2003/ 2004.

After studying at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences, I worked as the main live sound engineer at iMusicast in Oakland, California. The music was also broadcasted over the internet, via video/ audio and recorded for the database. I have done some recording sessions at Skyline Studios in Oakland, CA. I have done live sound @ Blake's on Telegraph, in Berkeley, California as well. I have been operating my own project/ home studio since 2002 and the studio started gaining momentum in 2004, after graduation from audio school. The certification in Pro Tools, good recording gear, music equipment and a great knowledge base helped Vinyl TraxXx Studios/ Pharmies Productions to be in demand and its been full speed ahead ever since. We have produced between 300-400 songs from 2004-2014...
