I specialize in horns. I love to write parts and record. I want to help make your song pop with that sweet horn sound! I have 20 years experience playing saxophone and 10 years recording, mixing and producing. For those reasons I have an in-depth understanding about how horns can give your track an extra edge.
I play saxophone, clarinet, flute and harmonica. I also have a wide palette of electric sounds with my wind synthesizer and my electric saxophone. It has a super cool pickup right on the neck of my horn so I can use my analog effects board to dial in the perfect unique sound for your track. I work across all genres including jazz, R&B, hip-hop, blues & latin. My studio is small but perfect for recording horn instruments so I am happy to call in some trombone and trumpet players to give you a great beefy section sound as well. Happy to write horn parts or give you ideas on how to help finish your track. I'm great at picking up where you run out of ideas and helping you get to where you need to go.
See below on my sample track. It is the perfect track to illustrate my sense of composition and arrangement. This tune is from a band a created and produced. The composition is my original work and the arrangement is as well. Although the song repeats certain sections, the instrumentation is organized in a dynamic way. Every time you hear a familiar section the instrumentation and writing is different and that makes the lyrics resonate with a different feeling. The horn section sound is powerful, but that is mostly due to the writing of octave lines. We are able to get a full sound with just two horns tenor sax and trumpet! I feel this track best exemplifies my understated style.

Reviews of Nicholas Myers
a pleasure to work with
Nicholas was excellent to work with. He wrote and recorded full horn section parts for 2 of my songs. He was really in tune to what I was looking for without even having to discuss it much. I received the files exactly on time as well. Highly recommended.
