" I spent 9 months
in the trenches (studio) with Chris
working on my record - 'Blood Vine',
and had a splendid time,
as well as turning out some of
the best tracks I have recorded.
Chris is passionate about detail
and patiently makes sure
the song sounds correct,
which is a big deal for me.
He has a wide range
of musical influences to draw from,
and was up for whatever
crazy record-making adventures
I set out on. "
Yoav - Singer/ Songwriter
" I chose to work with Christopher Tuck
on my 5th studio album,
because of the way he understands
subtlety and emotions in music.
I wanted an electronic album
but needed my voice and melody
to be respected,
and Chris did that beautifully.
His haunting productions
worked brilliantly with my vocals and lyrics,
and the tension he created
through light and shade in the tracks
It was a privilege to work with him
and I really hope to do so again soon. "
Louise Carver - Singer/ Songwriter
" Chris is my first stop
whenever I have studio work
in Cape Town.
He has an amazing knowledge
from both a creative
and technical point of view.
Every session I've worked with Chris
has been absolutely seamless,
always with a relaxed,
and creative atmosphere. "
Matt Fink - Producer / A&R (Just Music)
" Chris did a fantastic job
producing this album,
in what was an almost impossible
I don't think anyone else that I know of,
could have done what he did
in that space of time.
As far as I'm concerned,
Chris is the best producer in South Africa,
and his musicality, technical skills
and understanding of band dynamics
are second to none. "
Dominic Forrest - Composer / Guitarist - Fetish
" Christopher is by far
the most humble engineer
I have met during my 30 years
in the industry!
Not only that,
but his ear proved to be spot on
for the pop mixes I needed!
What a pleasure to work with him! "
Amanda Luyt - Vocalist / Producer
" I've worked with Chris Tuck
over many years,
across varied projects
and he's always brilliant.
Constantly moving with the technology -
keeping sounds fresh
but with that balance that experience brings,
and always at the service of the song. "
Ross Campbell - Drummer -

Simon Van Gend / Urban Creep
" Chris has been doing live recordings
for my 'song a week' project each week,
and I'm pleasantly surprised
at how beautiful
the simple guitar and voice recordings
end up sounding -
rich, atmospheric and detailed
without being overcooked in any way,
somehow bringing out
all the presence and vitality of the music.
He's also really easy to work with -
he has the sort of gentle,
very valuable in a producer,
that tends to bring out the best
in a performance. "
Simon Van Gend - Singer / Songwriter
"I worked with Chris long distance,
sending files back and forth,
which has been a very interesting approach.
I found that Chris
had the perfect ear for my music,
staying true to what I came up with,
and then adding his unique touch.
And such a nice guy, too.
It’s been an absolute pleasure
working with him."
Claes Kasper Bang -
Actor / Singer /
" We have worked with Chris
on various projects over the past 5 years,
and he never ceases to amaze us
with his attention to detail
and hands on approach.
Whatever the client is looking for,
Chris provides, and the outcome
has always been quality.
Chris' personality brings a sense of calm to the room
which is a massive plus
for any artist / band.
He also likes the same beer as us
which has proven to be very important
after long sessions. "
Digital Forest Studios

" I came to Chris with a job for an NGO.
It was such a pleasure to work
with someone who is so thorough.
The film was shown
in a beautiful venue in London.
It is wonderful knowing
that the sound was mixed professionally
and that the audience received
the full benefit of this. "
