Bob Stark

(USA-OR) I am still working in an independent capacity, but now have located all of my gear in the facilities of Sonic Media in Portland, OR. Truth be told, my job description reads more like Chief Mouse Pusher Button Presser Fader Puller Manuscript User at The Console of Awesomeness!

Bob is a 2 time Grammy winner with Esperanza Spalding and Steve Martin/Edie Brickell.

There have been wonderful clients over the years… from the glory days of punk with Poison Idea to the incredibly lush orchestrations of The Chuck Israels Jazz Orchestra. A few artists and bands that I have enjoyed working with over the years include… Esperanza Spalding, Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, McKinley, Michael Shrieve, Tracy Grammer, David Torn, Missy Higgins, Michael Brecker, Everclear, Bill Frisell, Douglas September, Peter Asher, Craig Carothers, Doug Smith, Heatmiser, Intervision, The Bylines, Quarterflash, Upper Left Trio, John Nilsen, Vayo Raimondo, ValGardena, Tom Grant, Darrell Grant, Mordy Ferber, Tunnel 6… and several up and coming artists ( I hope )… Taylor John Williams, LeAnne Robinson, Nicole Glover, Jacob Westfall, Tahirah Asha Memory. My apologies to all that are not on this brief list. You all are cherished as clients and friends in a business that generally consists of one month intense friendships every three years.

My goals for the future are to be involved in creating innovative music with young artists that are looking to change the world through music.

P.S. I like skiing, biking and really awesome food.
