Intro to Audio

George Kelly, Jr. will forever love Atlanta because he didn't move to the city with hopes of following his dreams; he and his dreams were born there. On September 15, 1981 at Grady Memorial Hospital, George introduced himself to his parents and everyone in the delivery room with a cry so loud he startled himself. He didn't know it then, but that was his first lesson in acoustics and sound surveying a room.  

George was raised in a family that is deeply rooted in the Christian faith. It was through countless gospel concerts and musicals that George developed a strong appreciation of music and a great respect for live musicianship. He and his 3 siblings attended church with their parents every week. On any given Sunday, George could be found sitting in the sound booth attentively watching his Dad as he monitored the mixing board during services. This planted a seed in young George, a seed that would grow to become the driving force behind many of his future achievements in audio production.

In the Mix

George is passionate about sound technology. With over 15 years of professional experience that includes owning and operating a full service recording studio for 4 years, working as a monitor engineer at the esteemed Beulah Missionary Baptist Church for 8 years and numerous live sound gigs as a freelance "sound man" -- his desire to diversify his craft and venture into the world of television and film lead him to the Art Institute of Atlanta where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Audio Production.

Currently, George does freelance Sound Design and Mix to Picture work at  Overstreet Post Production House in Atlanta, GA.  He enjoys living his dreams in the city of his birth with his wife and 3 children.

There's No Place Like Home

"I've always been proud of my city. Now, I am especially proud to be able to do what I love where I was born. It's an exciting time for the entertainment industry in Atlanta and as an audio professional I am grateful for opportunities that enable me to lend my talents to the mix." 

-George Kelly
