Chris Buck

The award-winning blues rock guitarist and songwriter from Newport, South Wales, Chris Buck is best known for his ‘pick and fingers’ technique.

It’s safe to say that Chris knows a thing or two about guitar as he was the winner of Music Radar’s prestigious 'Best New Guitarist' award in 2017. Chris has also been named ‘Best New Guitarist’, ‘Best Blues Guitarist’, and 'Best Pop Guitarist' in successive years by the readers of Guitarist Magazine.

Chris kicks off the project with his distinctive guitar stylings. He settles on a chord progression and adds interest to the piece with extra expressive sounds with his guitar.


Acclaimed recording artist, songwriter, and vocal producer, KARRA, is known for her top-selling Splice vocal sample packs, and collaborations with some of the biggest DJs and producers in the industry.

Having amassed over three billion streams and 300,000 fans across her social platforms, KARRA also produces content documenting her creative process, career, and life.

For the second instalment of the video series, KARRA builds on top of Chris’s solid foundation with her own vocals and production style.

In The Mix

The final part of this series is brought to you by the founder of In The Mix Scottish audio engineer, Michael Wynne. In the Mix is the largest community of music makers and audio engineers on YouTube, with over one million followers.

In The Mix helps musicians improve every aspect of their music production with free and easy-to-follow courses, tutorials, and equipment reviews.

Michael adds the final touches for the last part of the series by mixing and mastering the track to finish with a release-ready song.

Thank you to Chris, KARRA, and Michael for participating in the series.
