The Old Quarry - Every Song a Gem

We’ve got one mission at The Old Quarry: to give scrappy independent musicians the sound they deserve at an affordable price.

Whether you have a multi-tracked session or a stereo mix, we’ll give you a final master that satisfies all playback systems. You’ll be able to take on the world—and all of its playback formats, from streaming to vinyl—with confidence.

The Old Quarry is owned and operated by Nick Messitte, an engineer with over 15 years of experience in genres as various as rock, indie, mood pop, jazz, hip hop, prog, EDM, and musical theater. His passions lie in giving independent musicians everything they need to compete with—and hopefully outshine—big-budget major-label releases.

Clients include Soul Cannon, Super City, Peach Face, Micah E. Wood, Leland Sundries, Pete Mancini, and companies such as Voyage Media, ABC, various NPR affiliates, and more.

  • Adjective Animal Number 1 on Spin 2021 Albums to Check Out - Mastered Here!Jul 07, 2021

    Hello prospective client!

    I thought I'd show off something I'm truly proud of:

    Adjective Animal's second record, American's Got Talons, was ranked on Spin Magazine's best albums of 2021. It's actually top of the list, but that's because of its alphabetic order :)

    This record is a great listen. It was mastered here, at the Old Quarry. You can listen to it by clicking this link.
