Chris Badami is an American musician, music producer and sound engineer.
A New Jersey native, Badami began this musical journey by teaching himself the basics of recording on a four-track cassette recorder he received as a birthday gift.
Badami has recorded and produced hundreds of acts since the early 1990s. Chris got his start in the music industry as an active player and studio musician in the New York/New Jersey area. While performing in recording studios, his love of technology began. From there, Chris began working at top recording studios in the area and completed two college degrees in percussion and music technology from NYU (A.S. & B.M.).
The ability to relate to musicians in a recording environment is what led Chris to start Portrait Recording Studios. In 1995 Chris started Portrait Recording Studios with the idea of relating to musicians not only on a technical level, but also a musical level. Chris expanded on the idea by creating a relaxing, comfortable, and "State of the Art" environment for musicians worldwide.
Chris' engineering and production credits span the globe on both a major and independent level, working with artists and labels such as: Days of the New, The Early November, I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business, Luthea Salom, The Starting Line, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hidden in Plain View, Stafford, Socratic, Midtown, Mike Patton, Burlap to Cashmere, Lenny White (Miles Davis, Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea), Mary Wilson of The Supremes, John Popper of Blues Traveler, Roark, Jodelle (entertainer), OneTwoThreeFour, Pete Nischt, Geffen Records, A&M Records, Interscope Records, Drive-Thru Records, Victory Records, Trustkill Records, Relapse Records, and Regular Music.
On a musical level, Chris has recently been published in Modern Drummer Magazine and continues to perform and record regularly throughout the nation with I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business, Roark and The Jon Klein Combine.
