Geoff Pearlman on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Geoff Pearlman and I live in Sherman Oaks California. I've been active in the music scene here for over 20 years and have worked with lots of great acts and artists like Shelby Lynne, Linda Perry, Jakob Dylan and Dead Rock West. I was in the film Echo in the Canyon which featured Tom Petty, Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr to name but a few and on it's accompanying soundtrack playing 12 string electric guitar and other things. I've spent time on the road with several acts and played on lots of recordings, and have released 3 records on my own as an artist and songwriter. I've found what's important over all in every situation is that you bring the right thing to each project, meaning knowing how and when to edit yourself as a musician to fit into the holes without losing the song and vocal. When you have a song, the most direct path to the listeners heart is best achieved by not cluttering the way.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

Endorse Geoff Pearlman

    I know Geoff Pearlman as part of a group of super talented and generally very funny musicians in LA who are responsible for some of the greatest musical moments of my life.

    I hired Geoff to play on a track for my new record. It was a complicated piece and Geoff gave me three different guitar sounds and parts that totally elevated the track. Can't tell you how many times during the mix we were inspired to exclaim, "Thank goodness for Geoff Pearlman".

    Geoff is an amazing producer, engineer, instrumentalist and vocalist. Additionally--and this may sound like hyperbole--but he's one of America's greatest songwriters; America just doesn't know that yet.

    If you get a chance to work with him, grab it fast. He will elevate anything you bring to the table with his own musical genius, taking you places you can't imagine on your own.

    Everything Geoff touches sounds better. So creative, so much taste, incredible guitar tones and ideas for days. His musicality takes all of my recordings to the next level.

    Geoff has played on 3 of my albums. And wow, his tone, melodic and rhythmic ideas, and wide musical range have added so much beauty to my songs. Because he's also an esteemed singer/songwriter he really knows how to enhance a song...to give it just what it needs to make it sparkle and stand out. He's also a great producer/engineer and an all-round really nice guy. I can't wait to work with him on another project.

    I want to wholeheartedly endorse, share my appreciation, and admiration for Geoff Pearlman as a producer/mix master for many of my original songs. Geoff was pivotal in the mixing and assisting in the creation and producing of the songs for my band Lunden Reign and eventually getting signed to Cleopatra Records. In addition, Geoff produced several of my songs for my other band Make Believe Friends including guiding the vocal and music direction of many of these songs. Feel free to look up songs from either of these bands and you’ll hear Geoff’s amazing work first hand.
