I've worked w/ many artists from Warner, Columbia, Sony, Universal etc. Bands w/ members of Dashboard Confessional, Avett Bros, Nappy Roots. Guitar is my passion. It is my personal goal to serve your project by using great tone, experience, creativity, and state of the art equipment. I can’t wait to make music with you
I am a Nashville based producer, and session guitarist. I play lead guitar on tour with Chase Rice (Sony, Broken Bow). I am also a songwriter with Treevibez Music (w Flordia Georgia Line) I have been producing major label artists, and making killer tracks for tons of awesome indie artists as well
I produce pop, rock, country, and most top 40 genres. I play electric/acoustic/baritone guitar, bass, synth, keys, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, lap steel, dobro, and program drums. For real drums I have access to the top drummers in Nashville. I can mix, and master as well. I basically live in my studio!
My goal here is to translate your ideas and vision to tracks. I play for the song, and will strive to give you the absolute best performances, tones, and vibes for your music.
For instrumental tracking: I create all parts/riffs from scratch depending on how specific, or broad your vision is for the song. You can send me rough clips singing a hook idea, and I can take and make it a signature lick for the song etc. My studio has 30+ guitars, many vintage amps/pedals.
If you would like me to travel to record on an album or project in person, I'd love to discuss the details with you. I'm here to be an asset to your music. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Thank you for your time!

Chris has been great! Not only is he very talented and tailored the track to my desires, but he also was super down to earth, kind, and communicative.
A total pro. Chris is an insanely talented guitarist, and a great guy. I’ve worked with him on 3 songs so far, and plan on working with him again on my next project.
Second song with Chris, and I am consistently blown away by his incredible guitar work. It added a whole new dimension and complimented the song perfectly! He sent extra tracks so I had different interpretations to choose from. The best!

Chris did exactly what i was hoping for! Really happy with the results! I will definitely work with Chris again in the future :)
Super glad I worked with Chris and i highly recommend to anyone that needs a killer guitarist for their project!
Chris's credits set the bar high from the start, yet he still finds a way to go above and beyond what is expected. Not only did Chris blow me away with what he delivered, but he also made sure to effectively communicate every step of the way, making for one of the smoothest collaborations I've had through Sound better. Chris seems to truly love what he does and that shines through in his work.
Awesome guy to work with!! This guy is so talented and gave me just what I needed for my project! I will definitely work with him on my future projects!
Chris was a pleasure to work with. Super talented guitarist and producer. He's very patient and will work to deliver the exact sound you are looking for. I plan to reach out to Chris on future projects.
Interview with Chris Loocke
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is constantly evolving. I have Neve, API, and Focusrite, and wa76 compressor. My room is professionally treated. I have 20+ guitars, bass, ukulele, banjo etc. I have midi keyboards, maschine and more. I have enough effects pedals to open a guitar shop! I use Logic Pro X to track and mix records. Yamaha and Auratone 5c monitors. Focusrite Clarett 8pre x interface with great conversion. I am always buying new amps - I have vintage Fender/Marshall/Alamo amps to choose from, as well as modern amps from Morgan and PRS as well as a Kemper Profiling amp. With this setup, I am confident that I can get pretty much any tone needed!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly Pop/Rock, Country, Rock, R&B, Singer-Songwriter. Though I've played on many things that are in between.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill with recording guitar is that I play for the song, and not to show off. It takes guitar players years to leave their "egos" at the door. I play what fits in the grand scheme of the production.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have a lot of touring, songwriting, and recording experience. I have developed my ears through listening, and learning from all of these situations. I often hear immediately what I should do when it comes to making a part for your track. I am a great communicator - I strive to understand your vision, and want what I contribute to be the absolute best.
