KrisP, AKA Chris Pickarski, came to Pinetop Studio with a clear and open mind. When he told us he never sang before we were shocked because he was able to pull off a great song anyway. He came to collaborate in the arrangement process so he only had a vague idea and a vision of an emotional connection he would create in his listeners. He felt that something great would happen at the recording studio. It did. He wrote a song entitled “F*CK” which he wrote on the spot.
With our help we put together a suitable arrangement for his lyrics and chords. He was able to have a finished product to listen to in his own car by the time he left Pinetop Recording studio in the Poconos.
We wanted to interview Chris before he left to provide some public online awareness. So we asked KrisP a few short interview questions.
