Christian Erik on SoundBetter

I love creating lyrics, vocal melodies, and singing on any type of instrumental track. Writer and singer for 100s of songs worldwide. Work with top multi-Grammy winning Seattle producer Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Queens of the Stone Age). Pro Gear. Lightning turnaround times! Friendly AF!

I love helping you create something amazing and love what I do. You will hear that passion when your song comes back from me.

My superpower = creating and singing melody lines on any track. Not a rapper or screamer.

    by Graham

    Christian was a pleasure to work with. He wrote a song for my independently produced musical and recorded voice art. The song is great. His voice is first rate. He even wrote lyrics that match the mood and feel of the scene perfectly. And all this was done quite quickly.
    To top it all off, he is a really pleasant guy to work with.

    Christian Erik is a greta vocalist with a unique gift: powerful, gritty vocals that convey emotion. He understood the needs of my song (which were complicated) and he delivered an inspiring and unique vocal take. He works hard, has great communication, and an all around great dude. Recommend

Interview with Christian Erik

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

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?
