ABOUT

My name is Chris. I have been producing music for over 15 years, for all different genres, from Hip Hop to Metal to Folk to Electronica. Right now I am mainly looking for someone to create with who brings something new to the table. Simple! Super chill, looking for someone to grab some mutual inspiration. I love female vocals so I must say a female singer is high on my collaboration wishlist. I'm a super mellow musician to work with, and I have a bunch of friends that will attest to my decent level of awesomeness as well...lol. I do not have a premium account yet, so please contact me via ( s://./chris.gardella (this is the preferred method to contact me, I am on basically all day)) or subminimal at geemail dot com.
