Nick Schwartz on SoundBetter

Professionally trained session guitarist with over 15 years experience in songwriting, studio recording, mixing, and live playing, including the 2015 X Games Austin. I would be honored to be a part of your song - whether it's rhythm, soloing, crazy space sounds, etc... I'm up for it!

Welcome to my page, and thank you for the opportunity to partner up on your music! I have used SoundBetter as a customer to find mixers and drummers, and now I'm looking to offer up my talent as a guitarist to help others build their songs. Music is my life, and I believe I'm on this planet to make as much of it as possible. Let's give it a shot :).

I am based in Austin, TX, and play both lead and rhythm guitar in several bands -

*Ansible: Hard rock | Think David Gilmour of Pink Floyd-esque guitar solos, and Muse like riffing
*Band of the North: Folk rock | ~1k hours of recorded jam riffing and soloing over a decade... very fun band
*Harmonicks: Acoustic cover band | Tame Impala/Tears for Fears/Jeff Buckley/Ween

My main rig setup is a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24, played through a Blackstar Stage 60 Tube Amp. Recording is typically on my Shure SM57 (such a reliable tone) or my Node ND-1 (more for acoustic). I also have the Native Instruments Stradivarius Violin which I play MIDI.

Hit me up if you have any questions or would like to work together!

Cheers,
Nick

    Nick was great to work with, his song and production were excellent and a pure joy to mix. Communication was spot on as well. Looking forward to next time!
