Jeff Woollen

Owner/Engineer

After gigging successfully in the L.A. music scene as musician/vocalist/songwriter for E.S.P. Band and Heads & Tales in the late ‘60s, Jeff moved to the Pacific Northwest and continued his efforts as composer and songwriter. In 1990 he shifted his focus to music production and recording engineering, and in 2000 he opened Raven Cries Recording Studio outside of Seattle. Jeff is a member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and a voting member of The Recording Academy (The Grammys).

Jeff has designed and equipped his studio to faithfully capture instruments and voices with the natural resonance and tone they were meant to exhibit. Using a collaborative work approach, Jeff lends his innate musicality and decades of experience as a composer and songwriter to bring out the highest potential in every song. With over 30 years of professional recording engineering experience, he creates productions that bring the artist’s vision into full focus.

 

 

Callie Wong

Assistant Engineer

Callie graduated from Vashon Island High School in 2018. She has always had a love of music and was singing as soon as she could speak. She has performed numerous times as a singer, musician, and actress. She plays the piano, clarinet, and tenor saxo-phone.

Her journey at this studio started back in 2016 when she met studio client Ike Harmon who invited her to see what a recording session was really about. Ever since that day she’s been completely hooked. In January of 2017, she became the official intern and assistant engineer of Raven Cries Recording Studio. She has been learning everything from microphone types to mixing. To date, Callie has spent almost 500 hours in the studio. Due to this new found passion, Callie is hoping to pursue a career in audio engineering and will be attending Musician’s Institute of Los Angeles in the fall of 2018 with a focus on music technology and production.
