LET ME SING YOU SOME SONGS I WROTE

Geoff Ong loves inside jokes, the ocean, longboarding, and those days when it’s just a little bit too hot. He also makes soulful pop music bursting with fun, summery, instantly relatable tunes- a perfect soundtrack for fans of summer road trips, hanging out, and eating ice cream.

In June 2011 Geoff released his self-produced debut EP, Pictures, to rave reviews in local press, and a feature on KiwiFM as their independent album of the week. Singles and music videos from ‘Pictures’ saw nationwide radio airplay on KiwiFM, bFM, The Flat FM, and nationwide TV airplay on C4 and Juice TV. While promoting Pictures, Geoff also performed live on TV One's Good Morning and was the subject of a story on TV One's Asia Down Under.

In 2014, Geoff accepted a scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, moved to Boston, and wasted no time getting acquainted with the city’s music scene. Since the move, he has released a new EP chronicling his experiences with moving to Boston, aptly titled The Boston EP. Singles from The Boston EP have won accolades from The Boston Herald, PopMatters, Songwriting Magazine, and The Music Times, and taken Geoff through performances everywhere from the legendary Club Passim in Boston and The Bitter End in NYC, from The Hotel Cafe in LA to the SXSW festival in Austin.

So if you’re into great music, living the dream, and falling in love, join Geoff Ong on his quest to do all three.

Here are some nice things that some nice people have said about me (I got tired of talking in the third person):

“Ong makes pop that would make Hall & Oates proud… The smart, tight, jaunty “Massachusetts Avenue” is my favorite, but Ong has a whole EP of neo-soul called “The Boston EP” that sounds nothing like winter.”
– The Boston Herald

“…could appeal to fans of artists as diverse as Ed Sheeran, Michael Kiwanuka and The Magic Numbers.”
– Songwriting Magazine

“Ong delivers each [song] with unmistakable and unwavering energy and each song is easy to relate to. In fact, the only problem I can find with ‘Pictures’ is that there are only five songs – Geoff Ong is definitely an artist I can’t wait to hear more from.”
– New Zealand Musician Magazine

“Ong is a one-man, soul-band you are going to want to keep an eye on.”
– Muzic.net.nz

“A talented self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Geoff’s incorporated brass, keys, and some smooth soul… it sounds Sunday chill-out good.”
– writerlish.com

“If people don’t like your music they’re not listening. Like, you can find something to talk shit about almost any musician, but there’s nothing not to like about what you do.”
– This really nice (and possibly drunk) dude called Bryan who I met at SXSW

LET ME TAKE PICTURES OF YOU BEING AWESOME

Photography is a big ol' passion of mine. I love how photographs can capture moments and personalities and energy and laughter and emotion. And they can also capture how awesome YOU are (sales pitch + flattery 2-in-one, quabam)! I can shoot you or your band performing at a gig, I can do photoshoots and headshots for musicians, actors, and models, and if you just want me to follow you around with a camera for some reason, I can do that too.

Send me an electronic carrier pigeon mail using the contact form down the bottom, and let's talk about how I can use my camera to help you look even more awesome than you already do.

LET ME BE YOUR MUSIC'S BABY DADDY

I LOVE producing and recording music. Whether you are a mellow singer-songwriter looking to record an acoustic demo, or a 6-piece prog metal band ready to demolish Tokyo with your new album 'Godzilla,' I'm into it. (For real though please don't demolish Tokyo, I haven't been there yet and really want to check it out)

I'm also affiliated with Qualified Sound Studios in Whitford, New Zealand as an in-house producer and session musician, so if you want to record some stuff beyond what I can do in my home studio, we have a crazy radical pro-grade studio available for mates rates.

Have a listen to the tracks, hit me up via the contact form below, let me know what you wanna do, and we'll make some super sweet music together.

LET ME DESIGN SOMETHING COOL FOR YOU

I like designing things. Words, shapes, pictures, it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye but hey that hasn't happened to me yet so it will probably all remain fun and games for the foreseeable future. Get in touch through the contact form below and let's talk about poking your eye out... I mean your next project.

Anyway here are some things I designed:

LET ME SHOW YOU SOME FILMS I MADE

I'm very into the idea of telling stories through the medium of film. Right now I'm primarily in the realm of music videos, events, weddings, and short film, but I am totally happy to point my camera at whatever it is you might be interested in capturing.

Get in touch via the contact form below and we can be all like 'Lights, Camera, ACTION' and pretend that we're in a real Hollywood film and be all happy and celebrate with a glass of champagne when we clean up at the Oscars*.
