Brooklyn, New York
Nolan Thies began his musical education at the University of North Texas studying Jazz Bass Performance, an experience that supplied a solid theoretical foundation for his work as an engineer. After a stint as Chief Engineer at Dallas’ Bass Propulsion Labs, Nolan moved to Brooklyn, New York where he works as Staff Engineer at the beautiful and lavishly equipped The Bunker Studio. During his six-year tenure at The Bunker, Nolan has worked with an extraordinarily diverse range of artists – from large string ensembles to singer-songwriters – and this variety allows him to develop an excellent rapport with all manner of musicians. With his training in music theory, Nolan quickly grasps an artist’s intentions and works collaboratively to achieve the desired results. As a seasoned bass player, he can contribute electric and synth bass, and he’s also a proficient player of keyboards, guitar and percussion.
In addition to his role at The Bunker, Nolan operates The Blue Room Studio from his Brooklyn walk-up. The Blue Room’s comfortable setting makes it an excellent space for mixing an entire project, or tracking vocals, guitars and keyboards. Nolan’s broad experience enables him to work within many genres, including jazz and classical but he has special fondness for indie rock featuring lush textures and expansive sonic landscapes such as shoegaze and dreampop. He is available to book in either The Bunker or The Blue Room Studios.
