Meet Nate Scott

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nate Scott.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Nate. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Thank you for the feature, I really appreciate it! I’ve always been drawn to the arts, and especially music. My parents had an old upright piano, and by ear, I would figure out the themes to popular movies like Stars Wars and Indiana Jones. My cousins taught me how to play guitar, and my high school choir teacher+musical director taught me music theory and vocals.

I studied Film and Business at the University of Pittsburgh, and a week after graduation, I packed my bags and drove cross country for the Hollywood dream. 

After working in reality TV for several years, I needed a change, so I launched Great Nate Scott Studios. A few friends helped jumpstart the business by creating my website and designing my logo and business cards; they also helped me build a vocal booth!  I am eternally thankful to them.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I’ve had my share of challenges like everyone, but in hindsight, the struggle made me stronger, and it made the wins meaningful. Each trial aided in leading me to the clarity of my current vision.

Great Nate Scott Studios had a slow yet steady rise. I learned as I went along, working for free or cheap to secure any work I could find. I racked up debt on credit cards. I was buying gear I couldn’t afford, and I often sold that gear just to make rent! After my rent was raised, we ended up moving into the neighborhood where I met my wife. Eventually, I discovered programs that taught me to master my finances and instill confidence in myself. 

What I thought I really wanted at the time was to be a rockstar, but after two bands didn’t work out, that dream subsided. I realized that I’d rather utilize my talents and fulfill my dreams while also being able to spend quality time with my family. 

I delved into pop production with some previous roommates, which ended sour. However, it sparked something in me, and made me realize how I could channel my musical creativity in multiple outlets. Thankfully, I discovered the podcast And The Writer Is, which further lit my love for songwriting!  The theme of my life unfolding is an awesome blend of bitter and sweet, yet all of it gives depth and a lot of inspiration for my creativity!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Great Nate Scott Studios – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
I love being a one stop shop sound studio.  We’ve provided post sound design, music production, film scoring, and voiceover production since 2007.  We work with independent music artists as well as production companies in collaboration with major studios and brands. I give the same dedication and detail to every project, regardless if it is online content, a passion project, or a major network show. Everyone’s project deserves it’s best.

I am currently producing podcasts as well, and it’s really fun being able to venture into an avenue that is really expanding right now. 

I’m honored that I’ve been able to work with clients of all backgrounds. It’s truly inspiring to be of service, and to bring creators’ dreams into fruition. I am simultaneously proud and grateful to get to do that. 

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
At the moment, I’m producing and building my wife’s brand, Racquel TW, which includes podcasts, online community, and spiritual resources for the modern mystic. 

My goal is to transition to songwriting and producing for other artists full time, and to manifest their dreams. I’m focusing on toplining (lyric and melody writing) for pop, rock, hip-hop, and country music.

I’m also producing more music and sound FX for licensing, producing new podcasts, and putting out regular content on social media.
