Chrissy Tignor is a producer, songwriter, recording engineer and vocalist with a super-synthy pop style fused with EDM and hip hop influences.
Chrissy got her start in 2004, studying Music Production and Technology at The Hartt School of Music in Hartford, CT in The United States. She specialised in engineering and production techniques, classical vocals and composition and became recognized for her intricate instrumental arrangements and dreamy style in recorded music.
In 2008, Chrissy travelled to England to enroll in the MA Audio Production course at The University of Westminster in London. It was there that she began to experiment with drum programming and synthesis. She developed a love for the UK music scene whilst studying, and decided to remain in London upon graduation. Fairly new to the scene, she was immediately noticed for her unique production, programming and songwriting style by several studios, musicians and production houses. She is currently living and working in Boston, MA at Sanctum Sound Recording Studios, and is full-time faculty with The Berklee College of Music Contemporary Writing and Production Department.
