Val Garay is a legendary, multiple Grammy Award Winning Producer/Engineer with a career spanning almost 4 decades and has received over 100 Gold and Platinum records for Producing/Engineering hit's for Linda Ronstadt, Kim Carnes, The Motels, James Taylor, Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and the list goes on.

Garay made his mark early on working with artists creating and defining what is still being referred to as the “L.A. Sound.” Today, Val is busy working with up-and-coming new artists, producing/engineering scores for motion picture and television, writing and co-writing songs for new projects and constantly searching for creative ways to take his sound to the next level. The key to Garay’s continued success is his view of the role of a producer/engineer: “I’m not there to put my indelible stamp on the record so that people listen to it and hear Val Garay all over it. I go into each project with the full intention of bringing out the very best in the artists I’m working with. My only concern is that my work helps result in a great finished product.”
