Chris Bartels is a musician, producer, and teacher from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Earning a Bachelor's of Science in Music Production at McNally Smith College of Music in 2012, his expertise is music, but he wears many hats in the media industry. Besides writing his own music and releasing albums, composing for film and ads, engineering, mixing, mastering, and producing music, he has experience in video production and editing, design and photography, live sound, marketing, and website development.
Chris also currently teaches Music and Media classes at STEP High School in Anoka, MN.
Chris launched his own company Anthem Falls Music
in the fall of 2012 as a hybrid record label and production house. Rather than separate his own creative projects from his compositional work in film, TV, and advertising, he wanted to develop all his work under this umbrella.
Current projects include:
