Andre Cailliet on SoundBetter

I record from home using logic. Solos, rhythm, acoustic, etc. genres I play include: Metal, rock, pop, country, jazz, RnB, fusion, and progressive music. I have a electronic project called Rave Llama, and I’d be happy to help you out with your guitar needs!

I live in Nashville, Tennessee and am a live and studio guitarist. The main band I’m in is a pop cover band, Nick Vallese and the Misfit Toys. I also have played with Sarina Joi, Joca Stone, Michelle De LaRosa amongst a lot of fill in gigs. I was a member of the Wisconsin black metal band, Warseid, and played on their EP, “Where Fate Lies Unbound”. I’m a fan of all music; life is just too vast to just listen to one style.
