Andrew is great! Professional and was able to work with me while I was away and make my songs sound great. Thanks again!Apr 23, 2018Verified
Very talented producer, engineer, and musician. He was genuinely interested in getting the best takes possible out of me, and was able to work very quickly which allowed us to effectively experiment with variations, ad libs, and harmonies. Looking forward to recording with Andrew again!Nov 9, 2017Verified
Recording a new song of mine with Andrew has proven to be a fantastic experience! The quality of the recording session... Andrew's taste and knowledge of music... the way he communicates to bring out the best in you and your song... well, it's all: as good as it gets! I would very highly recommend Andrew to anyone seeking a recording professional of the highest degree of empathy and musical/engineering abilities.Aug 10, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?While I usually quote for a standard hourly rate, I don't want my clients to feel it is either set in stone or the only approach. I'm always happy to discuss the best way to bill for a project, for example, per song/track or for the entire project, if the scope is known. For longer projects, I'm also happy to be able to offer block booking discounts. Additional fees are only ever incurred if the artist wishes to contract a session musician or another separate specialist for whatever reason. Producing sometimes requires advising the artist and bringing talent together. While this can be very valuable, it can also be cost effective in the long run and often warrants a discussion where appropriate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, I talk to a new client on the phone initially by way of an introduction. Then, if it seems like our working together is a good idea, I will invite them to view the studio and meet in person and have a free consultation to discuss their project, to get to know one another a bit and start to form the outline of a plan to achieve their goals. If it seems like a good fit, the artist typically books in some time for an initial session to begin the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started playing violin when I was three and trained at London's Trinity College of Music in singing, violin and harmony. That gave me a pretty solid classical music background. Alongside that, I was playing guitar in a few different genres, focusing on rock and wound up playing guitar for the now Grammy nominated Sia as she made her meteoric rise to the top of the international music scene. I worked extensively in film music and have collaborated with some of the greats including, Hans Zimmer, Klaus Badelt and Harry Gregson-Williams
