Hello! My name is James Riotto and I am a Bay Area producer, recording engineer, composer, and performer. I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing people in this capacity, including John Vanderslice, Sean Hayes, Mohsen Namjoo, The Mountain Goats, Thao Nguyen, Merrill Garbus, Charlie Hunter, Marty Ehrlich, Geographer, Ezra Furman, Sophie Hunger, Shannon and the Clams, Astronauts etc, Kacey Johansing, Guy Fox, DRMS and many, many others.
I've toured the country in rock bands, transcribed Mingus' "The Black Saint and The Sinner Lady", arranged music for a 24-piece Magik*Magik*Orchestra, and performed my own songs in a bunch of very different projects. I am a full-time house producer/engineer at Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco, though I freelance at other studios. I've also released several albums of my own music, most recently an EP called End of the World.
