    I sent Andy another two folky singer songwriter tracks that needed upright bass, and once again he nailed it. He was quick to respond and quick to deliver the recorded stems, all of which were played beautiful, and recorded to a high standard. Really happy!

    I needed some upright bass parts for a couple of folky tracks I was working on and Andy responded quickly and with enthusiam.

    I'd asked him to record some variations to the written parts, so he provided various takes which were really well recorded and delivered quickily. He's a creative player and his additions to the written parts worked brilliantly. It was a great experience working with Andy, and I will do so again!

    A very special sound with great intonation, and a creative use of broken chords and harmonics.

    Andy is such a wonderful bass player and person to work with. It's magical having him play on my songs, such beautiful playing, melodic lines and grooves, adapting to always to suit the needs of the song. Immensely talented and experienced across a wide range of genres. Also a fabulous chromatic harmonica player! I look forward to continuing working with Andy.
