Bio

I'm kind of semi-retired. I've been doing this for such a long time it's wound up that I do it all from tech to studio design, session work and everything in-between. This doesn't make me better or worse than anyone else, just different.

I started as a session musician in the 80's and fell into the biz. I've been very fortunate in that I started when it was pretty much all analog and stayed on top of things all the way through. I try to keep a low profile on most sites because I guess I have a pro status. I've always tried to be subtle and behind the scenes. I just love music and as I said I've been very foryunate in my career, so, when I can, I do what I can to give back and help.

If you want a better picture you can google "Tom Chianti".

It's not the whole enchilada but it will give you some back story.

I do own my own small studio and continue on a "pick and choose" what I want to do basis.

In NY, there is a whole tier of hard working, constantly working engineers who do everything and just stay busy and sane without being out in front of all the brew-ha.

When I was working all over the place, it took a toll on my health and family. People don't understand the full price of constant calls and endless travel for the big sessions.

I like being my own boss and having time for a life outside of the industry.

Sorry if I'm rambling.

My favorite thing to do is mix. I consider in order to mix a song you also have to produce the mix and to some extent make production decisions as to creating or deleting parts or sections, but not always.

Most of this bio is actually copied from a conversation I had with another artist here on Kompoze. He decided not to use the mix I sent and I respect that. I respect any artist, musician, whatever who has a strong vision and knows what they want but keeps an open mind. That's what makes collaborating a wonderful way to express a group or personal idea.

My door is always open to artists who think I can help.

Thanks

TC
