About Brendan

Brendan McGeehan is a true utility player in the music industry. A trained recording engineer and studied musician, he is adept and comfortable behind the board, in the producer’s chair, as well as performing bass, piano, or ukulele on the other side of the glass.

Equally at home at a rock venue, classical concert hall, or jazz club, Brendan’s enthusiasm and love and understanding of many genres of music keeps him in demand as a dude you might want to work with.

As an engineer, Brendan is constantly involved in the production of sounds, whether it’s working as the in-house producer/engineer for an 80 year-old Philadelphia accordion legend or mixing audio for 20,000 people at PPL park for the Philadelphia Union at an MLS game, and all things in between. Brendan is a staff engineer, producer, arranger, and session musician at Forge Recording in Oreland, PA, where he also teaches audio production. He also teaches sound design at Lebanon Valley College.

On the live stage, Brendan currently plays bass and keyboards for Philadelphia acts AlyCatWeekender, and Matt Spitko, and has toured extensively up and down the east coast.

As a composer and sound designer, he has scored music for many films over the last few years, working with directors from Philadelphia to LA on shorts, features, corporate, and non-profit films. His latest documentary, “Dizzy Fingers: the Life of Joe Soprani” was featured on NPR and enjoyed a sold-out premiere.

Recent highlights include producing a Brazilian jazz album incorporating over 60 musicians for Philadelphia based group Minas, working on Aziz Ansari’s comedy special, “Buried Alive,” directing “We Are Music,” a music video that layers the talents of 20 musicians, all performing live at different iconic Philadelphia settings, and producing and engineering jazz records that include performances by Larry Coryell, Mike Clark, Orrin Evans, and more.
