ABOUT

I'm a former professional blues musician from Chicago where
I worked regularly in many of the most well-respected Chicago blues clubs. I have performed widely with numerous accomplished blues musicians including many of the very legendary figures in Chicago blues - Otis Rush, Magic Slim, Sunnyland Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin and others.

My main interest these days is recording. I have a small studio in my house and am starting to really enjoy the recording / mixing / mastering aspects of music more than gigging.

That said, I'm interested in building a portfolio of tunes that I've mixed and/or mastered and would be interested in hearing from anyone looking for these types of services. If I like your song(s), I would be willing to do a test run for free. If I really like your song(s), I'd probably be willing to do it all for free - this is something I enjoy doing and would be happy to help out someone in need if it seems like the right match.

My ideal situation:
- you have a completed recording that you need mixed / mastered or a previous mix that you're unsatisfied with
- you can provide said recording in a reasonable format that I can work with (preferable a Logic / Garageband project or .WAV stem files)
- if you're open to ideas or have the need, I may be able to add to the recording with some guitar parts or other items that may enhance the final product (keys, bass, etc... but that's entirely up to you)

Please contact me at chriswt68 at gmail

PS - I could also use some vocals for some of the songs on this profile that I'm in the process of re-recording / re-mixing.
