Ed Clare

Edmond Clare aka “SpookyRockstar” can create almost any style from any era, but he believes he is at his best when using his skills to help an artist realize their own unique style, and when bringing their style to its best potential.

Obsessively studying trends, and using his expertise in both conventional and unconventional sound design within music has had even established producers around the San Francisco / Bay Area consulting with him on “how to get that latest sound”. Multiple companies and corporations have utilized him on recreating sounds of current and previous eras and bands.

His skill-set is currently utilized by both artists signed to Sony (Europe) and at Sony (Europe) itself.  His past clients also include Conde’ Nast, PG Music Inc., Universal Music, and hundreds of artists over the lifespan of his career.  

He is currently serving on the board of the West Coast Songwriters, and will be launching a YouTube and Periscope channel with the goal of helping artists become producers themselves.
