Christopher Rowe (record producer)

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Christopher Rowe, is an American record producer, audio engineer and guitarist specializing in country rock. He is best known for his work with Taylor Swift.


Rowe began his career working as a guitarist on folk, new age, and ethnological records before moving into country music as an assistant engineer and editor. He was part of the production team for the Dixie Chicks album Fly.

In 2021, Rowe worked with Taylor Swift for her two re-recorded albums Fearless (Taylor's Version) and Red (Taylor's Version), which he served as the producer, engineer and vocal engineer of these albums.

In 2023, Rowe worked with Swift again, producing and engineering Speak Now (Taylor's Version) along with providing background vocals to the "From the Vault" tracks, namely "Timeless". Later that year, Rowe returned in the same roles on several tracks on Swift's 1989 (Taylor's Version).
