Specializing in remote sessions online for mixing, mastering, on staff guitarists, keyboardists and drummers to meet your every need. I also work locally and have a fantastic sounding studio just 20 minutes north of Seattle, in a relaxed, woodsy setting.
I’ve had a strong interest in recording since I was a teenager. Actually, since I was able to walk, I have been fascinated with recording and music in general. Instead of stuffed animals or toys, I carried records with me everywhere. As a toddler, I used to sit in front of the turntable and just watch records spin. That was my happy place.
I bought my first 4 track cassette recording device with money I saved from my first job right out of high school. I was hooked instantly. I just loved capturing sounds. I also loved playing and writing music. I spent much of my teen years learning to play multiple instruments, and to this day, I still get a rush from playing or recording something new. I love taking a sound, capturing it, then enhancing it, and challenging myself to make whatever sound it is, the very best it can be. Be it a vocal, a drum kit, a guitar, bass, an organ, a piano, even a tambourine. I want it all to sound amazing, and I don’t stop until it does.
I am a graduate of the recording program at the Musician's Institute of Hollywood, California, after which I went on to work with engineers and producers for some of the biggest stars in the music industry. I was also fortunate enough to have a long career as an audio producer for radio, where I worked with a wide variety of celebrity television/radio/broadcast personalities including: Carson Daly, Casey Kasem

Reviews of Glenn Allen Production
Glenn was fantastic to work with on this project. My company is based in Chicago, so I was looking for a local partner to do field audio recording and final mix tracks. It was a great experience working with Glenn through the SoundBetter resource. Would definitely use him again.
I've been working with Glenn since about 2005 in LA. One of the most talented musicians/producers/engineers I've had the privilege to work with on my albums. After he moved to Seattle, I continued to record in his new Seattle-based studio because of the unsurpassed quality & expertise he applies to every track. Glenn's brilliant-- AAA+++
I've had the pleasure of performing live and recording with Glenn. He's a top-notch singer, musician and producer, as is evident from his own tracks. Given his incredible ear, pro equipment and attention to detail, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any recording project.
I began collaborating with Glenn years ago as a fellow musician - an amazing one at that! - but later I got to work with him as an engineer and producer. No matter which hat he is wearing, Glenn holds himself to a high standard, speaks your language, and is fastidious about capturing the perfect sound for your project. Highly recommended.
Glenn and I have worked together for 10 years (local & bi-coastal) on projects in every genre imaginable. He makes painstaking efforts to ensure everything is perfect from vocal tones to guitars and the minutiae of mixing and beat adjustments. More than a producer, performer or engineer, Glenn offers the energy of a creative partner.
Working with Glenn is like working with the most accommodating and exacting ear you can find. He's got a beautiful space to work in with multiple rooms to record and lots of fantastic gear to make sure you sound your best. He will, at your request, either go with your vision of the track you're working on or offer his best suggestions. 5 Stars.
