This was our second time getting a song done from Andy and I can't recommend him enough. He's very easy going and patient and does a very good job understanding the needs of your song.
Always a pleasure working with Andy. Such a cool dude who is willing to spend extra time on zoom to help optimize your sound and production process. Song turned out great!
Andy was so chill to work with and did such an epic job on our indie/reggae song. Definitely top notch mixing/mastering and has an ear for the type of sound your going for. Definitely recommend!
Loved working with Andy, great communication, amazing ears and musical choices in his mix. Really happy with the result. Look forward to the next time.
