Someplace Like Nowhere EP
Originally from Omaha, NE, songwriter, singer, guitarist, producer and engineer Geoff Pearlman began his musical journey by starting guitar lessons at age 9. After years of lessons and practice, Geoff attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, graduating in 1991. Since leaving Boston, Geoff has toured as a guitarist with Grammy winner Shelby Lynne and producer/songwriter Linda Perry. Relocating from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 2000, Geoff currently plays with many of LA's local favorites including Quincy Coleman, AM, Acadamy Award® nominee Bird York, Buck Johnson, Jill Sobule, Walk the Line co-star Waylon Payne, Dead Rock West, Zack Hexum and Heather Waters to name but a few, and has even jammed with Laurie Morgan, Norah Jones and John Waite. In the studio, Geoff's guitar playing has appeared on the multi-platinum records Disney's "High School Musical", "High School Musical 2" and "Hannah Montana" as well as recordings by Island recording artist Jon McLaughlin, and singer Joan Osborne. Geoff is also a busy studio engineer/producer/composer having worked on various projects for television and music. He has composed for the Travel Channel, the Food Network and Mattel and several independent projects and his own original songs have been used on television programs such as Jag. As an independent artist, Geoff has released a full length CD 'Anything at All' and an EP entitled 'Someplace Like Nowhere', containing the songs 'The Man with the Unbreakable Heart', "Caroline and 'Nightmare Waiting to Happen'. Working with a cast of fabulous musicians (including drummer Bryan Head, keyboardist Michael Bluestein, bassists Dave Meshell and Jon Evans), Geoff has self-produced this new EP in the sonic shadows of classic records such as Neil Young's 'After the Gold Rush' and the Beatles' 'Rubber Soul', once again mixing and co-producing with Tori Amos' bassist Jon Evans at his studio San Pablo Recorders in Oakland, CA. .
