Chris Collins
Owner - Lead Engineer - Producer - Asst. Manager

   Jordan began his music career at a young age; playing in the NW Reggae Scene with bands such as Big Blue Van, Swayze Train, and Perfect By Tomorrow; at many venues throughout Washington and Oregon. He is versatile with many styles and practices a variety of instruments. He has spent much of his time with Live Sound Engineering, Stage Production/Management, Recording Live and Studio Sound. He is not afraid to take on seemingly overwhelming tasks and is always excited to unfold a new musical experience with each artist he records.

  After studying at Shoreline Community College for Digital Audio Engineering, Chris helped create RAREFACTION RECODING as an outlet for his passion of recording and mixing music. He feel blessed to have the opportunity to share his musical journey with all the extremely talented people who come through the doors.
