Chris Hughes is an audio engineer based in Los Angeles. His passion in the art and science of music has been present ever since he was very young and growing up in Colorado. Chris moved to California in his late teens and studied music theory in Santa Barbara with emphasis on songwriting. That is also where he landed his first studio internship at the legendary Santa Barbara Sound Design. He received a Bachelor's of Applied Science in Sound Arts from Ex'pression College for Digital Arts and started a successful freelance audio career. Over the years he has helped numerous bands create and release their music. Chris has worked in recording sessions with Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, John Lennon), Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis) and Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Blondie).
