Gregory Allison - lead engineer Holy Volcano Studio



Gregory's boundless curiosity has led him down many creative paths as a musician. Trained as a classical violinist, mandolinist, and composer, he has traveled the world with instrument, microphones, and camera in tow, finding artistic inspiration in everything from Germanic doors to the densely forested coastlines of the Pacific Northwest. The founder and lead engineer of Holy Volcano, his flare for the adventurous is mirrored in his approach to music, video, and audio production. He brings the vast landscapes through which he has traveled into the studio to give every project a unique and authentic sound.
