    Always great to work with. Andrew has great ideas, isn't afraid to try new and out-of-the box things. He also is excellent at listening and understanding what my vision is, and can apply his skills to get there.

    Andrew was great to work with and his product is exceptional. He definitely goes above and beyond what I thought I'd get for his price. He takes time to understand the song, asks the right questions, and gives great advice too. I will absolutely work with him again.

    Awesome experience working with Andrew. Asked him for some instrumental production and he did not disappoint. What I appreciated the most was that he took his time to make sure everything was right and the way I had envisioned it. Do not hesitate to work with him, very professional and on point with everything. Will be working again ASAP

    I've worked w/ Andrew once, and it was a great experience—friendly, professional and top-notch service that will meet your needs, whatever they may be. He's tracked/mixed/etc. some big names, but he shows the same spirited exuberance for all the artists he's worked with (including the little guys like me). 10/10 would do it again.

    YO. Andy C from Revive the Rose here. 10/10 would work with Andrew endlessly. The guy is super educated, passionate, and takes his time to make sure it's perfect. He nails tones big time, and knows how to mix everything. Whether it's to hit hard, or to chill out - he knows how to do it. Work with him if you need it done right.

    Each studio session Andrew and I have been in together, I find myself leaving having learned something new every time. Not only has working with Andrew made me better at arranging beats and other pieces of music, but he has shared tons of methods that I now use in every one of my beats. On top of being the easiest guy to get along with, he’s also hilarious and will never have you leaving in a bad mood.

    Andrew is an amazing producer, and simply a great person to work with and be around. If you want someone who will be as passionate about your project/music as you are, then look no further. He has the right ear for producing, he knows exactly what your songs need as you go about recording. The result is a clean, professional sound. He is also talented in his own abilities when it comes to vocals, instrumentation, and writing. I am beyond happy with our decision to go with Andrew to record Otherwives’ second EP, ‘All You Ever Hopes For’.

    Andrew has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He takes great pride in his work, and it's definitely reflected in the final product. Whether he's bringing my artistic vision to life, or adding his own creative input, he has done it with a high level of professionalism and skill, and all my songs are much better off because of it. The value of his services is far greater than the cost. 10/10 will hire again.

    Andrew is the only man I work with and the only man I will continue to work with! The level of professionalism that he works with while still maintaining a jolly attitude makes work flow very easy. Andrew has mixed and engineered almost all of my music and I have sent everyone who wants to work with me to him for engineering. Andrew has also produced multiple instrumentals for me and has production credits on nearly all of my work post 2018! Absolute stud who knows how to give you the exact sound you have in mind!

Interview with Andrew Leyenhorst

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I don't have a preference. You can make great records in either domain, especially with how far along software emulations have come along. That being said, the satisfaction of using analog hardware is hard to replicate.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: The most important thing for me to know about my client is the vision they hope to achieve with their finished production. What's the most important thing about the piece to you as the artist, that you aim to convey?

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Polished and punchy. I deliver sonically tight productions with slick, modern sensibilities. Creatively, I aim to produce music that's engaging, dramatic, and large in scale/

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: The mixing process ultimately begins with mic choice and placement.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: Passion and perspective. I want your record to be the best it can be, and it's my job to facilitate that through every facet of my involvement. Through my own experience writing music, working with a very diverse body of artists, and a scrutinous analytical ear for music, I can identify exactly what your song needs to fulfill your vision and execute.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: Mike Shinoda, Eric Ratz, David Bendeth, Joe Duplantier, Anthony Carone
