I am a professional vocalist and Music Producer seeking band projects in South Florida (I'm in the Fort Lauderdale area). Valedictorian and Course Director's Award for Musical Structure and Analysis - Full Sail University Music Production Bachelor of Science Program, 2018. Does anybody sing harmonies anymore? Would love to crush some great vocal group stuff with some great singer/players a la Eagles/Little River Band/Doobies, etc. But I also love progressive pop, classic and modern rock and great R&B. I'm also a songwriter, lyricist and producer and would be interested in collaborating and performing some original music as well. I'm also available for production projects for demos, EPs and more.

I have spent a lifetime involved in the performing arts as a singer, actor, director and songwriter. I've performed and directed in musical theater, rock and pop groups and other performing groups for years. I am currently the Lead Singer of the rock cover band Aces & Kings. Before relocating here to South Florida from Cleveland, Ohio a few years ago I was the Band Leader and one of the Lead Vocalists of The Avenue (dot)geoffreybshort(dot)com/band) one of Northeast Ohio's most in-demand special event dance bands, performing at hundreds of weddings and other special events. I worked full time as booking agent for over 25 live bands and 20 DJs. I am experienced in and love nearly all genres - rock, pop, country, R&B, Motown, Standards/Great American Songbook, show tunes - even heavy metal, etc. Especially adept at tight harmonies. While most of the work I did with The Avenue was for private events, I'm also interested in club and/or original projects as well. Learn more at geoffreybshort(dot)com.
