Geoff Ong loves inside jokes, the ocean, longboarding, and those days when it’s just a little bit too hot. He also makes soulful pop music bursting with fun, summery, instantly relatable tunes- a perfect soundtrack for fans of summer road trips, hanging out, and eating ice cream.

In June 2011 Geoff released his self-produced debut EP, Pictures, to rave reviews in local press, and a feature on KiwiFM as their independent album of the week. Singles and music videos from ‘Pictures’ saw nationwide radio airplay on KiwiFM, bFM, The Flat FM, and nationwide TV airplay on C4 and Juice TV. While promoting Pictures, Geoff also performed live on TV One's Good Morning and was the subject of a story on TV One's Asia Down Under.

In 2014, Geoff accepted a scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, moved to Boston, and wasted no time getting acquainted with the city’s music scene. While living there, he released a new EP chronicling his experiences with moving to Boston, aptly titled The Boston EP. Singles from The Boston EP won accolades from The Boston Herald, PopMatters, Songwriting Magazine, and The Music Times, and took Geoff through performances everywhere from the legendary Club Passim in Boston and The Bitter End in NYC, to The Hotel Cafe in LA and the SXSW festival in Austin.

Geoff has since moved back to his home of New Zealand and, after a short musical hiatus, is right back into the local music scene.
