Nels Motel is a comfortable and inspiring place to make music.  It's the home base for engineer Robb Davidson and producer Charlie Smith.

After nearly a decade operating as Studio Nels in downtown Seattle, we've moved north to Greenwood, transplanting the best of our old studio to the Motel. 

The Motel shares a building with our other home base, the legendary recording studio Avast.  We’ve built a control room, vocal booth, and synth room that will serve as a new creative space to compliment the records we make at Avast.

It’s an ideal spot for writing, tracking, editing, and mixing music.  We’ve been studio obsessed for years and have put together a crazy rad collection of instruments and recording gear.  Seriously.  We tried to think of a better way to say that, but… it’s just rad.
