Geoff Tate is the eponymous solo debut from Queensrÿche vocalist Geoff Tate. It was released on DVD-Audio in 2003 and DualDisc in 2004. The DualDisc edition contains the album in 5.1 Surround sound, an interview, as well as other bonus multimedia content. Tate followed up this work ten years later with 2012's Kings & Thieves.

In contrast of the heavy metal of Queensrÿche, the album explored a variety of other genres such as dance-pop, electronica, and adult contemporary. It received positive reviews from publications such as the All Music Guide, where critic Gary Hill stated that "the disc is really quite solid and, given the chance, should be enjoyable" for listeners.[1] The official Amazon.com review also stated, "The overall style is dramatic yet mellow, with hypnotic midtempo melodies and layers of lavish harmonies."[2] The album became a commercial success, reaching the #22 slot on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.[1]
