About the Owner

Hi I’m Brian Altman and I’m the owner of Altman Studios. I began my music journey in 1998 when I received my first guitar for Christmas. I quickly began writing music and performing with bands, amassing thousands of hours of live and studio experience until I decided to build a studio of my own in 2015. From 2007 to 2019 I made my living a Telecommunications Engineer, Project Manager, Software Developer, and Business Intelligence Analyst (yes, I really did hold all of these positions), but in 2019 I was fortunate enough to be able to turn my passion into a full time business. I left the corporate world to operate my studio and haven’t looked back!

As a man of many passions and skills I find it hard to be satisfied doing only one thing and love that I am able to take on all manner of audio and video work. I have been playing guitar and bass for over 20 years, written and produced hundreds of songs, and performed internationally with many artists and bands of many genres.

My long time motto has been: You only have to do 10% more to be 100% better.

In all my endeavors I aim to go above and beyond and always deliver that extra 10%. If you’re ready to work, let’s talk about how I can do that for you and your project!
