Hello! with over 20 years experience I have seen and heard just about everything, but I still haven't heard from you! Producing, mixing and mastering music is the only thing I have ever really known and it is this that motivates me to get out of bed every morning.
Since this is an online relationship I cant really see offering recording production services but this is a great way to offer mixing and mastering services to the whole world. I have been working on remote projects ever since Fedex was created and people would send their 2" tapes to me for mixing, now it is much easier and cheaper! if you have something that you would like to have mixed or mastered give me a call and lets talk about your project!
Click the 'Contact' above to get in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Geoff Ott is everything he appears to be and more. I have worked with him on a number of projects in "real life" over the last couple of years, and I could not ask for a better producer, mixer, and all around genuine person worth knowing, much less working with! Whatever you're looking for, Geoff will make sure your music shines.
Interview with Geoff Ott
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a one stop shop for most of my clients handling all the production, mixing, and mastering
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Communication is key. I need to get a clear vision from the artist before I am unleashed on the project, after all it is their vision we are trying to acheive I am just here to help get what they hear in their head to come out of the speakers.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Work really hard to make your music sound as close to what you want as possible. If you are hearing effects then print them if you are out of tune then fix it, not sure about a part then re write it. The better your tracks sound when they get to me then the more time I can spend on the actual mix rather than editing for 90% of the time and mixing for 10%.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Easy, Jimmy Hendrix because he is Jimmy! and also he really worked hard to make records that were really interesting, the live shows were something totally different.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Big, I love low end, high end and really wide clear mixes, God invented stereo for a reason, I would hate to let him or her down:-)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as an intern under Rick Parashar in the early 90's we made so many records together and sold a lot also. Since then I have worked all over the country and for the last 13 years have been the owner of London Bridge Studio in Seattle www.londonbridgestudio.com
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: This is a stupid question. Obviously I would want a hammock, a water purifier and something to lite a fire with. When it comes down to it the most important thing is a great song and a great musician, the tools are secondary.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to my work and talk to me, the best relationship comes from trust, when we get on the same page not only will the work be easy and creative but we will be unstoppable.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I have worked extensively on both and honestly I am happier with digital because I have learned how to make it sound the way I want it to, with analog there is always an unknown factor on how it will effect the sound and that can get kinda stressful.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Amber Sweeney is one of the best singer songwriters around, the record we did will be out in January of 2017 but you can hire her now to sing on your record!
