“Outside of the studio Eli takes care of the band with pre production and get’s them ready for the sessions mentally and physically. Nothing is worse than a band showing up unprepared for their sessions. In the studio he keeps them motivated to get their parts tracked correctly and with passion.  He is always eager to learn and a great partner.” –  Joel Lauver, Producer/Engineer, Burning Bridge Recordings (Haste the Day, Job for a Cowboy, Still Remains)

“Eli is a motivator, with a knack for songwriting, arrangement and melody. As a producer, he is a critical link between the artist and recording engineer, helping translate your musical vision into a reality. He is a lover of all things music and is passionate about the projects he takes on.” – Wesley Deboy, Producer/Engineer (Rodeo Ruby Love, Arrah and the Ferns, Everything, Now!)

“Eli Chastain was super hands on in our recording process. He was as equally as transparent as he was supportive in the creative process. An equal blend of technical engineering skill and cooperative musical direction, Eli has got it all. 10 out of 10, this guy’s the real thing. CHAMPION.”  – Alec Strickland, Marketing at Universal Music Group
