    It was great again working on our next song with Christian. We were quite demanding, but that was no problem at all for Christian, so we were very happy with the result!

    Christian's resulting vocal track was amazing, Emotional, Real, and best of all, Perfect. Christian pulled the song, the lyrics into his soul and
    gave them back to me as a perfect vocal track. Thank you!

    Christian has been my go-to vocalist for a few of my rock/hard rock tracks for a bit now and the result is always badass. He’s very friendly and works fast with the projects I send him. If you’re looking for an awesome rock n’ roll singer, I’m telling you, this is the guy for the job.

    Christian was so incredible to work with. A top notch professional in every way and he can sing! He was flexible, easy going and patient with me and laid down an absolutely killer vocal teeming with power and emotion. Can't recommend him highly enough.

    Christian slayed this track!

    He came so hard with Outlaw AF vocal, OMG it sounds so fucking good!

    In addition to a great voice, he was willing to do multiple takes to get the timing the way I wanted to.

    He communicates very well and is very fun person to work with.

    Thanks again bro.

    Wish I could share the finished product.

    What an awesome singer. This is the second time I’ve asked Christian to sing for me and, as expected, he delivered a badass rock vocal to my song. Couldn’t ask for a better result! Very friendly and professional. Helped me with edits and even additional suggestions I asked for throughout. Highly recommend!

    5 Stars! 10/10

    Christian...you really blew me away with how you interpreted my music and you sang your ass off. And you know your way around lyrics. I asked for philosophical and spiritual and that's what you gave me. Rock on bro and I will be in touch for a full project. Cheers!!!

    Christian was great to work with on my latest song. Speedy and responsive, but what really came through was the soulful nature of his voice.
    Christian also has the knowhow and technical ability to record himself so that the track comes in clean. Very important!
    I look forward to working with him again on future projects.

Interview with Christian Erik

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I started a project called Fistful of Leaves, which you can listen to on any streaming service. It's Acoustic Indie Rock Americana. I am singing for as many people as possible and writing as much as possible. Also enjoying nature, exercise, reading, and meditation.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Stop reading these words and listen to samples of the music we post for you. After you have carefully listened to the tracks, feel free to continue reading. My vocal reels kicks ass!

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: Djembe, SM7b Microphone, recording Interface, Taylor Acoustic Guitar, solar generator for power

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: Session singing has been my occupation for the last 10 years. I sang in musicals from a kid into my teens. I started singing in bands when I was a sophomore in High School. So...my path has been singing in plays, bands, classical vocal training in college while playing in a band, and continuing to play in a band during my "Working for The Man” years. I learned how to record, mix, and produce rock music by interning at Orange Whip studios in Santa Barbara and then built my own studio. Tons of trial and error. Lots of falling and getting back up.

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

  10. A: Singing on the Late Night Union album. It’s a kick-ass rock and roll record. I wrote several of the songs. I wrote all the lyrics and vocal melodies/harmonies. We recorded at the iconic Studio X with Legend Adam Kasper.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: Whatever sounds best for the song. They both have awesome characteristics. Digital is so good now though, I don't think most listeners could tell the difference, and it's so easy to manipulate, mix, and edit digitally.

  13. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  14. A: I fulfill my life’s purpose by singing and helping create something from nothing. I want to provide my clients with something wonderful that they can be proud of and share to create great life experiences bonded by music.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: How do you want it done? When do you want it done? Do you want it basically the way you sang it or do you want me to Soul-Power’ify it?

  17. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  18. A: Make the song awesome, amazing, and human...don't chase perfection - seek the most genuine emotional vibe possible.

  19. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  20. A: Rock, Pop, Indie Rock, Americana, Southern Rock, Outlaw Country, Blues Rock, EDM

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Adding more power, truth and soul to the existing work of art. Making the listener feel the emotion of the song. I can create toplines/lyrics/vocals on any instrumental track...so far!

  23. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  24. A: Truth, Emotion, Creativity, Soul, Grit, Power, and Dynamics.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I have a 3 room studio space. There is a main tracking room, an auxiliary tracking room, and a vocal space/mixing space. It's very serviceable and I am able to get a lot of different microphone placements.

  27. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  28. A: Any person who works hard and has the goods to be a professional musician, especially if they are working on original music, inspires me.

  29. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  30. A: Q - How soon can you do it? A - How soon do you need it?

  31. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  32. A: That it’s easy.

  33. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  34. A: Q - How soon can you do it? A - How soon do you need it?

  35. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  36. A: That it’s easy.

  37. Q: How would you describe your style?

  38. A: Whiskey, smoke, dirt, leather, fire, water, trees, space, and sex. But not limited to those things.

  39. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  40. A: I am a professional singer and songwriter. I can write a song from scratch or sing exactly what I’m asked to sing. Power emanates from my pipes. The goal is to add soul and range to every song.

  41. Q: What's your typical work process?

  42. A: Listening is the most important part of the process. What is the song? What is it saying? How can I give it a genuine human feel with vocals in order to have the song connect with it's listeners. How can I best serve the song? The vocal track or tracks are mixed into the stereo files and returned to the client as a mix and the individual tracks are sent as mono files. I quickly do any requested changes.

  43. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  44. A: I will give your song my all - vocally, melodically, lyrically, and emotionally.

  45. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  46. A: Any artist who is trying to express their awareness. I am part of all and all is part of me.
