The Wild Nomad Studio is comprised of Producer Alex Priore, Mastering Engineer Daniel Brouns, and a number of exceptionally talented studio musicians. We are located in a home studio in VA, but love to travel to where YOU are to record your album. We've recorded in apartments, churches, and living rooms, creating great music wherever we go!

Producer Alex Priore studied at Belmont University in Nashville, TN where she graduated with a bachelors degree in Songwriting and Music Business. While in Nashville, Alex spent time working in a publishing house, managing a local band, and honing her production skills by recording other local Nashville artists.

As a prolific songwriter, she believes that a recording can only be as good as the song itself and as such loves to work extensively with clients in pre-production to develop the song into its fullest potential lyrically, harmonically, and sonically. Her gifting lies in the ability to identify and enhance the best elements in another persons artistry. With a passion for collaboration and organic instrumentation Alex specializes in producing indie folk, folk rock, and singer-songwriters.

We offer Pre-production, Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Song Coaching. Recording in our home studio is always the easiest option if you live close, but if you are out of state or are interested in making a "Nomad Record" in your own space, contact us to find out about our travel rates.

Interview with The Wild Nomad Studio

Analog or digital and why?
Digital. Analog is expensive and the tonal qualities don't make enough difference for me.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will make your recordings the best "you" you'll get. I'm not going to change your sound, ever. I'm just going to enhance what you already have going for you.
What do you like most about your job?
I love creating something that didn't exist before I got my hands on it. I love working with artists to develop their sound.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
The biggest misconception about recording in general is that you have to be in a completely isolated room, professional studio space with 10s of thousands of dollars worth of gear to make great recordings. This just straight up isn't correct. Great albums come from great producers and can be made ANYWHERE.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
I'd take my Macbook Pro, a USB mic, a midi controller, a guitar, and a pop screen. Honestly, that's all you need to make an awesome track.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I began producing in college and have been doing it professionally since 2012. I opened my home studio back in 2013.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would like to work most with Timbre because she is incredibly talented, her songs are beautiful, and she is creating something unique.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I usually work on folk rock, acoustic, and singer-songwriter.
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is in songwriting, arrangement, and vocals.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring loads of experience and expertise to a song. I studied songwriting at Belmont University, have written hundreds and hundreds of songs, and work with songwriters every week. I have honed in my craft and developed my ear for hearing what works and what doesn't. But I always try to communicate it in a spirit of encouragement.
What's your typical work process?
The first step is always preproduction. We workshop your songs to make them the strongest they can be. This might be tweaking the melody, changing up the chords, or tightening up the lyrics. From there we record scratch tracks of your instrument and vocal. If you're a band, we bring in your band mates and get their parts tracked and if not, I arrange the music and record with my session musicians. You then come back in, record the real versions of your parts and then I add the finishing touches, mix it, and send it to my mastering guy.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I currently work from a studio space inside my home. I'm running Pro Tools 11 on my iMac and Pro tools 12 on my Macbook Pro. Gear: M-Audio Ultra 8R interface, 2 SM57s, AT4033a, KRK Rokit 5 studio monitors.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Typically, I work with songwriters. I love helping an artist develop their sound. We workshop songs, arrange tracks, and create a cohesive sound.
