I want to give local artists access to quality mixes at a fair cost, get the most I can out of their song(s), and show them what it could be.
I've been making music at home for the last three years, and recently invested in making sure what I'm hearing in my room translates to other speaker systems. I've been studying recording and the music business in school and I currently have an associate's degree in live sound & recording. I interned at a studio for six months where I was able to see projects from local artists to major labels, and learn from someone who has studied the craft for the last twenty years. Since then I've been doing freelance work as an editor for a podcast and helping local artists record, whether it be at my studio or at their home. I'm trying to get into another apprenticeship at the moment, but I'm taking on freelance work as a mixer until then.

Interview with Chris Doms
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We're going to work together to make the song the best it can be.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to figure out what the song is telling me it needs, as opposed to over producing my own visions onto it. I like to take a simple approach most of the time and elevate what the artist is giving me.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: It sounds cliche, but I like to know people's stories if they willing to share and I like to know a lot about their project.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask questions, be clear about your expectations, and be open to useful feedback.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Minimalistic and aesthetic, I like making songs sound huge with as few elements as possible, but all those elements showcase the aesthetic of the song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Right now I'm working on three projects, an alternative album, a pop ballad album, and a heavy metal EP. Apart from that, I tend to write a lot of acoustic and ambient music on my own as well as making a lot of beats.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being a team player, I feel like I thrive in any team based environment the most, whether it's in or outside of music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some musicians that inspire me are bands like Nothing, Movements, The 1975, The Neighborhood, and artists like Taylor Swift and Phoebe Bridgers. Production professionals who inspire me are people like Will Yip, Jeff Ellis, Jon Castelli, Spider, and Ruairi O' Flaherty.
