Annie Prior

Producer & Session Musician

Annie Prior on SoundBetter

my services are aimed at smaller musicians who are looking to expand the sonic palette of their songs without breaking the bank, specializing in the noisier sides of rock, pop, and folk music.

i’ve been producing music for myself and my friends for the last ten years and would love to expand my circle of collaborators. over the years i’ve played in many bands, always looking to get weirder with whoever i work with. i can play guitar, drums, bass, and some keys but i’m most proud of my abilities in mixing and arranging. i’m fully able to crank out a recording for a demo on the cheap but, truly, i love to dream with the music i create.

all i really need to know upfront is how your song goes and what your budget is. we can then talk through the specifics of what you want.

specifically, my services include:
– instrumental writing
– instrumental recording
– mixing
– songwriting & arrangement advice

note: i am currently only working remotely.

Interview with Annie Prior

  1. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  2. A: i'd love to work with jamie stewart. how anyone can fit that many literal bells and whistles into a 3 minute pop song is beyond me.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: the more stuff you have to worry about, the more likely it is for something to go wrong.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: mostly what i would describe as 'guitar music'. standard rock band stuff.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: i love to bring the noise! sure, i'm perfectly happy to produce a soft and pretty acoustic number but if you allow me the opportunity to get weird with it, i'm totally going to get weird with it.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: my 'studio' is nothing special. i don't have any special gear to write home about but i have everything you could reasonable need to make a rock song. most significantly i have the means to record a full drum kit, which i know can be a sticking point for smaller artists.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: i love to dream with the music i create and phil elverum's work in the microphones and mount eerie has always been a gold standard in production for me. that being said i also appreciate the just-get-it-done ethic of producers like steve albini. to be a producer is, to me, to understand and achieve what a song needs before moving on to what a song wants.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: i have been a kind of in-house producer for my friends band 'Parker Lee' for a couple years now so i have lots of experience in fleshing out song ideas and recording them.
