Nick Lanyon

Producer and Songwriter

Nick Lanyon on SoundBetter

I can produce and record instrumentation for your super catchy song. Need help making it super catchy? I can do that too.

My song "Fine Living" has amassed over half a million streams on Spotify alone. Listen to it in my bio to get a sense of my style as a songwriter, producer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist (I'm playing everything on the track except for the Rhodes piano). You can hear more of my work with Rapallo here: https://linktr.ee/rapallomusic

I also have experience making music for film, having recently composed an 80's synth-heavy score for "Evergreen," a short film that debuted at Montreal's Cinema Moderne: https://nicklanyon.bandcamp.com/album/evergreen-score

My current projects Rapallo's upcoming LP (songwriter, recording engineer, singer/instrumentalist) and engineering/co-producing the upcoming debut EP for Clay Hazey, an alt-country singer/songwriter from the band Cape Cartel.

I work out of my home studio and Autoland Audio, a professional studio in Montreal with plenty of nice gear to fit your project's needs.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Nick Lanyon

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

  2. A: Indie pop, yacht rock, alt-country and synth pop

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I work from my home studio at Autoland Audio, a professional recording studio in Montreal. My home setup is great for recording synths (I love my Juno 106), DI'd tracks, and just getting ideas down. I use the studio to record drums, acoustic guitars, amp cabs and Rhodes, as well as to re-amp DI'd tracks as needed. Here's a full studio gear list for the studio: https://autolandaudio.com/gear-list/

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

  6. A: Steely Dan, Weyes Blood, Alex G, Destroyer, Sade, Prefab Sprout, Roxy Music, Bob Dylan, Oneohtrix Point Never, War on Drugs, D'Angelo, Cocteau Twins, Blue Nile, Judee Sill, Michael Franks, Video Age, Michael McDonald, Joni Mitchell, Thundercat

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

  8. A: I help my clients take a rough song idea and turn it into a fully-produced track that's ready for mixing. I can help out with songwriting, arranging and recording instrumentation, sitting-in as a session player (bass, guitar, synths, drum programming), and any comping/editing that's needed.
