About


About


MEET THE ENGINEER

Music has been a central part of my life since the beginning. I claimed my parents' Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Metallica albums as my own while in elementary school, and began playing drums around the same time . This quickly cascaded into learning to play guitar, piano and eventually trumpet and french horn in an academic setting. As a result, I’ve been playing a wide array of instruments in bands for the past decade. My interest in recording began with the desire to record my own music, as well as recording cover songs to practice mimicking the sounds of my favorite records. In 2007, I opened a project studio called NS Audioworks where I worked with over 70 different bands spanning from country to metal. In 2014, I moved to Downers Grove, IL and began construction on a new and improved studio space that would become Invigorate Recording. With construction completed in the summer of 2014, I was thrilled to finally put the tools down and open the door to musicians. In addition to my work in the studio, I’ve been recording, mixing, filming and editing live concert audio for the web publication, Made of Chalk since 2012. During this time I’ve had the opportunity to provide coverage for bands such as La Dispute, Deafheaven, TTNG, Say Anything and nearly 50 more artists from around the world, accounting for over half a million views. In late 2013, we partnered with NBC to include video coverage of Into It. Over It performing at Schubas on Last Call With Carson Daly. The video and audio work in this content has served as an invaluable promotional tool landing bands video premieres on publications such as AV ClubCMJAbsolutePunk, Baeble Music and many more.

Testimonials


"...I can't even find enough words to say what a great experience this was and how comfortable Nick made me (and my wife) feel during the process.  His professionalism and personality are awesome and when I received the finished product a week later I was just blown away.  I actually plan on going back in the near future and record a couple other songs just for family purposes.  If you are looking for someone to help you with your recording needs I highly recommend Nick for quality and price of work."

- Mike Ferrell

"Working with Nick was truly a great experience. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about sound engineering, but he also has keen ear for the "right" sound and worked tirelessly to ensure that the album fit my vision. All in all, my experience with Invigorate exceeded my expectations – I definitely plan on working with him in the future."
