Chris SD (Shreenan-Dyck) is an award-winning music producer. He has worked on 5 albums that won Juno Awards (Canada’s Grammys) along with 7 nominations. He was also nominated as Engineer Of The Year in 2012. With his extensive industry contacts and experience he would also help artists land record deals, find management and booking agents, and help them license music to TV & film.
After 20 years of working 12 to 14 hour days in traditional studios, he decided to find another way to work in music so he could spend more time with his young daughter. He came up with the idea of starting an online recording studio that brings world-class talent to anyone for indie rates. Chris wanted to give artists the chance to work with A-list session players and award-winning engineers no matter where they lived. Sundown Sessions Studio was born and went online in late 2015. After only a year, online clients have already had some major international successes.
...AND THEN MUSIC LICENSING
A large part of his clientele are songwriters who aspire to get their songs into TV & film. Chris started a service that selectively licenses music with licensing agent, Danielle Emmrich. They have successfully placed clients’ music with the most recent being Elizabeth & The Catapult who earned a very healthy five-figure fee for a season finale placement. Since they can't shop everyone’s music, Chris decided to teach songwriters how to do it themselves from A-Z. With so much misinformation about music licensing out there, he turned to some of his top contacts in the licensing industry to help him develop the ultimate music licensing course. “The Art Of The Song Pitch” was released in early 2017 and included webinars with 5 top industry experts teaching about licensing. It was such a huge success that he is refining the course and launching it again in October of this year.
The goal of this site is to teach you how to get your songs into TV & film.
