Music Production

Crazy Chester’s core activity is the production of music…or making records, as we still like to call it. We’ll add an organic, soulful quality to your signature sound. It is important to us, that we can provide a natural and comfortable environment for the artists we’re working with. All our productions are highly collaborative team efforts with everybody involved contributing their unique talents. The interaction of the musicians is important to us, so our goal is to record as much as possible live on the floor. Our producer Andreas Werner makes sure that our artists will be able to display their full abilities and create a product that they’re highly satisfied with. We’re the kings of pre-production and very organized because we want you to get the most out of your studio time and experience. We’ll be happy to make the best possible record with you, for the budget that is available.

We’d like to produce your next recording project. Please get in touch with us to talk about it!

Record Label

Crazy Chester Records is an independent record label that specializes in releasing and reissuing musical gems. It is what many call a boutique label. Its releases will mostly target a niche market of collectors and music fans. There are many gems lying in the vaults of Crazy Chester’s family’s vaults that could eventually see the light of day on the label. It is also made to make demo pressings and run limited edition of our collaborators with getting a record label deal in mind. Crazy Chester Records has digital and physical online distribution and partners with selected independent record stores and music outlets.
