He honed his skills in Music City while working with some of the world’s greatest musicians and producers. After developing as a free-lance recording engineer, Randy accepted a position in Atlanta, GA in 1991 to broadened his skill sets to include post audio as well as music recording and mixing.
Randy edited and mixed promos and commercials for the Turner networks, Tribune Creative Services and various advertising agencies.

Hear what broadcast clients have to say:
Dan Brown of CNN Creative Marketing
Randy has long been our “go-to guy” when we need audio done right – from original scores, to a great mix, Randy is our first choice when we need a pair of capable hands and don’t have time for rounds of revisions. As a long-time client, Randy “gets” us, but never misses an opportunity to show us something new. He’s a meticulous engineer, creative musician, he understands budgets, and has never missed a deadline. What more could you ask for?
Bill Keith of UPtv
Randy is that rare, talented audio artist who thinks like a producer. Of the many projects we’ve worked on together, he’s always been instinctively “in tune” with both my sound design and my production budget needs. And he delivers one hell of a mix!
Aaron Weiler of Cartoon Network
Randy’s superb audio artistry and collaboration have enhanced every Cartoon Network, Boomerrang, and Tooncast project he has worked on for me. In addition, his knowledge of music, sense of humor, and easy-going style always make for a very relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Chuck Moore of Turner Classic Movies
Randy doesn’t know the meaning of the word “adequate”…he’s always enthusiastically on board for whatever it takes to make each project great….As a client who obsesses over final mixes, my highest compliment is this: I would gladly air a Randy Garmon mix sight unseen (unheard?) and have total confidence it was wonderful.
