The Studio

The studio is situated on the banks of the beautiful Shoalhaven River on the south coast of NSW in the rural setting of Nowra you will find the quaint historic town of Terara.

River Recordings provides the perfect atmosphere for your first or next recording project. River Recordings is owned and operated by Brad Williams, singer-guitarist and frontman of The Furry Animal’s band. Brad has over 30 years’ experience in musical performance, recordings and live production.

River Recordings offers you state of the art equipment in a relaxed and easy going rural environment. The studio is based on an Avid Pro-Tools System.

All the best industry standard Plug-ins and software instruments are available to give your production a fantastic professional sound.

The studio is a hybrid digital/analog studio. With outboard gear such as tube pre-amps and compressors being used in conjunction with the digital system. We frequently use source connect to allow us to associate your project with partnering industry studios. Even though we are small we have the ability to utilise 16 track recording when needed. 

Brad prides himself in the ability to give you an extremely high-quality product at the best possible price. River Recordings is an affordable studio that is available for everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or first timer.

Brad takes the time to discuss your personal visions for your recording, and can even provide additional instrumentation to add texture and substance to your project.

Unlike most other studios, each project is tailored to your needs and not those of the studio, from solo singers, hip hop artists to large bands, production of backing tracks, jingles, advertising, voice-overs and bloggers the same attention to detail is given.

Being a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist himself, Brad brings many years of experience that gives him an edge when it comes to getting that perfect audio mix of voice and instruments.

Make an appointment today to get yourself on the road to realising your dream. Check out the studio and the cute cows, give Brad a call and he’ll pop the jug on.

    As with pianists, every piano has its own unique personality. The musicality of each instrument comes from a perfect harmony of time-honored, finely-honed craftsmanship and cutting edge production techniques that guarantee precision and accuracy. The passion and devotion of the many expert artisans involved in its crafting are distilled into the soul of the Yamaha baby grand piano.
