I'm rooted in country and rock music, and specialize in more modern/psychedelic approaches to pedal steel guitar. You can hear a bit of what I'm talking about on my Spotify playlist, which is just a small collection of songs I've played on recently.
I play Guitar and Pedal Steel. You can see me on tour with Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Bats, Chloe Kimes and playing frequently in Nashville as well.
My recording setup is based around an Apollo Twin MKII into a MacBook Pro, and I track acoustic instruments in a treated room and my amplifiers in an iso closet. I use a WA14 Large Diaphragm Condenser on acoustic instruments and amplifiers, as well as a Sennheiser e906 on amplifiers.

Interview with Nick Larimore
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to receive a stereo file of the song, either with click or without that I'll track along to.With each song its good to receive any info like sample rate, tempo, and any notes or references you have for the track. After tracking I will send 2 different passes as WAV files, as well as MP3 reference tracks for each take.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I track at home with my amplifier in an isolation closet, usually with a Sennheiser e906 and/or a WA14 condenser. From there I go into an Apollo Twin mkII Duo and run Logic Pro X.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most often I track Pedal Steel or Weissenborn (think acoustic lap steel) as an overdub after the vocals and most of the instrumentals are done on a song. I normally provide 2 different versions of each track that you can choose between or comp. Occasionally I also track acoustic/electric Guitars and Mandolin.
