Chris Rakestraw began his career in the early 2000’s, working in large format studios in Los Angeles, CA, before designing, building and operating Sunset Lodge Recording Studio from 2006 thru 2013. Rakestraw now resides in and works out of Nashville, Tn.“I’ve been working in studios and making records for 15 years. I’ve learned a lot, made a lot of records, and met a lot of people along the way. I love making records, and expect a lot out of the artists I choose to work with. Ever since I was young, music has consistently impacted my life. Music still brings out the best in me, and I intend to continue giving back to music what I have gotten from it for so long, my best.”
