About Chris

I am a guitarist, composer and sound mixer with over 20 years experience. In addition to countless live performances over the years, I also spent 4 years as a dubbing mixer in a London post production house where I clocked up plenty of credits with all the major UK broadcasters. Key skills:

Session Guitar - Trained musician, excellent sight reading ability, experienced session guitarist, majority of styles covered to a very high standard. Credits include: Jane McDonald, Rat Pack Orchestra, National Youth Jazz Orchestra, We The Undersigned, Peggy Seeger.

Composer / Producer - Trained at Alchemea School of Audio Engineering, credits include music written for Marconi Communications, Total DVD magazine, and more recently solo guitar works.

Dubbing / Sound Mixer - 4 years spent at Skyline Audio Post in London's West End. Voice record, edit and mix of countless documentaries, corporate films and radio programmes for major UK broadcasters.

Accountant - I qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA) in 2009 and have spent the last 8 years working in industry as a finance professional. My CV includes an impressive list of projects and achievements with blue chip companies such as Capgemini and Barclays Bank. I remain an incredibly busy musician, composer and sound mixer!
