“From the very beginning of our career, Chris Jacobie has been there. His name is spoken with love and gratitude in every interview we give that pertains to our music. He is the Swiss-Army knife of talent that's been in the producer's chair for us during 4 full length albums & our first 3 song EP. He and Mel and Norah Bones are family to us. If music got taken away, there would always be that kinship, but we aren't done with him yet. If he'll let us, we aim to bleed that talented SOB dry of every last brilliant idea he has. The only problem is, he seems to be an unstoppable source of freshness. He is an empathic learner, a multi-instrumentalist, a trendsetter, a production chameleon, and a kind hearted sound-savant. He makes us better men and musicians. We love him.”

“Chris is a talented guy in a lot of ways but the thing that sets him apart is: He has some of the best ears and ideas in the business! Plus, he makes an artist feel at ease and welcome in a studio environment.”

“Working with Chris was the perfect balance of planning and then just seeing what the hell happens! His posture and home-studio environment were so welcoming and professional. For our band, it was an absolute dream working with this next level producer. Chris is an insanely talented audio engineer and musician. He fostered a very laid-back, creative space where we could let the songs really take shape in the moment. As a producer, he just gets the big picture of where you are coming from and where you want to go. He helps protect the sound you want while at the same time exploring new ideas. We cannot wait to go back!!”

“Chris created a recording environment that was the ideal blend of professional and casual. He gained my trust quickly as my producer, and even quicker as my friend. The questions Chris asked and the challenges he posed along the way broadened my understanding of myself as a songwriter, and of the craft itself. Chris helped me find my signature vocal sound that will undoubtedly shape how I approach all my future albums.”

“My favorite part about getting to work with Chris is how he obsesses over everything. Those are the type of people that I love to work with. He gives it everything he’s got! I don't know enough about sound and audio to say why, but I know that when I work with Chris, I can trust that he knows what I want. And that's totally kickass!”
