Acclaimed Australian indie rock producer Jack Nigro has set up shop on the Central Coast with his own recording venture Sonora Studios.

Jack honed his audio craft as the in-house engineer and studio manager for The Grove Studios, working with next-gen Aussie indie/alternative acts like DMA’s, The Amity Affliction, Skeggs, Dune Rats, The Terrys, Pacific Avenue, Middle Kids and more.

“Building my own studio was something I first wanted to do when I was about 15 years old,” Jack says.

“Having my own space that I, and hopefully others, love creating in every day is a very special experience. I have always liked studios to feel relaxed, intimate and calm. I feel like this is the best environment to foster creativity and become completely immersed in what you are doing.”

Sonora Studios is a two story, purpose built recording facility and creative space. It features an acoustically treated main live room dubbed ‘Sound Space A’ alongside a secondary production and mixing space, ‘Sound Space B’.

It also utilises world-class recording equipment, including hardware from Neumann, Avalon, SSL and Universal Audio, as well as a range of in-house backline from Orange, VOX, Fender, Ampeg and a 1975 Ludwig drum kit.

The calming and open environment of Sonora Studios reflects Jack’s approach to the recording process and his philosophy of removing barriers to the creative process.

“We built the studio to cater for bands to be able to record live, a process I find very important for many of the artists I work with,” Jack says.

“We ensured our main live room space has a lively, organic sound to best capture acoustic instruments. One of my favourite aspects of the job is that we are creating bodies of art that will hopefully reach and positively impact many other people.”
