Millions of Plays / Soulful Session Guitarist / Producer & Mixer / Multiple Placements on VH1, Netflix, etc.

I specialize in producing music with soul, whether it’s Pop, Hip Hop or Country/Americana. I love to layer electric and acoustic guitars, drums, keys, synths and most importantly, groove.

My music has been placed on Love & Hip Hop Miami (VH1), RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1), Celebrity True Crime Story (VH1), American Greed (CNBC), Forensic Files II (HLN), and many other tv shows.

I’ve played guitar with #1 hit songwriters and my playing can be heard on the soundtrack to the Tubi original series, Freak Brothers.

    Really enjoy working with Andrew! He is very fast, easy to work with and comes up with creative ideas. We started a new project together already.

  3. Review by Versatile Singer-American Idol

    Andrew is a fantastic musician, writer & team player. Never have I had a project go so seamlessly as I have working with him. He has great ideas, leaves space for collaboration & feedback, and he's focus & driven. 12/10 recommend this guy for your project!

  4. Review by Kyle Pudenz

    Andrew is one of my absolute favorite musicians AND composers to collaborate with. Whether in country/rock/pop song production or in composition and arranging for film & TV, his wealth of knowledge across genres is a powerful resource and allows him to adapt his creative process for a variety of unique scenarios. If you're looking for a guitarist that truly can handle "just about anything," or someone who can tastefully set the scene and bring your content to life with a beat or a score, this is someone you want to have on your creative team.

We take as long as it takes to write and arrange the song, then after a break and a cup of coffee, we start recording.

We can take a half day per song to get it sounding just right, and then I master the track and delivery it to the client.
