I'm a creatively-focused musician and full-time producer/mixer who is based in Nashville. Growing up in Music City, I developed my skills while being surrounded and influenced by many professionals in the industry, and have credits on major label and independant singles/albums in the Pop, Rock, and CCM genres.
I am a music producer/mixer from Nashville, and love meeting/working with new artists. I've been playing guitar for nearly my entire life, toured for almost a decade, and started producing music in 2011. My band, LOYALS, is signed to Tooth & Nail records, and our debut full-length record that I co-produced and co-mixed will be out later this year. My work portfolio consists of indie-rock, pop, some Christian/Worship, instrumental work I've done for video and promos, and podcast work. Don't be shy. I can be flexible with my rates, and I will do my best to make your song or album the absolute best it can be.

Reviews (3)Endorse Andrew Gomez
Working with Andrew is the best thing I've done for my songs since writing them. He knows what he's doing technically, but more importantly he loves what he's doing creatively. That comes across in both the quality of his work, and the time and effort he invests in the finished product. He's easy to work with, and he's a good communicator. A+
hi i am from Iran . in my country i have a nice voice . im new enter . i need sponsor . i need not money and ... you just arrange a music or me . word of music is ready .
Andrew is a really great producer. He enhanced the ideas that I had for my song and added a lot of production values to it. I can tell how much he cares about the music that he's doing more than anything. Andrew is really responsive and he always opens up for suggestions throughout the whole project. Looking forward to working with him again.
Interview with Andrew Gomez
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Whatever you are personally more comfortable with is the right answer, but for me personally, digital.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I can't make bad songs great, or garbage recordings shiny. The more you put in on the songwriting and recording, the better the mix/master.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: "Do you believe in your music?" "Will you be willing to work alongside me, as a team, to achieve your musical dreams?"
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to find someone in, or from a music hotspot city, like Nashville, L.A., NYC, etc. The acceptable level of "good" or "great" in those cities is much higher than anywhere else.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Telecaster, My 2015 15" Macbook Pro, My Mbox Pro, My ATH-M50x headphones, and my software plugins (assuming that isn't counted in the computer). That's all I need to make music!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing guitar since the age of 8, and in my teen years, I always had an interest in recording. After being in a band for a few years, I finally gave music production a shot, and now, almost five years later, I am making a living off working in my studio.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'm very "I don't care how we get to the finish line, as long as we make it there" when it comes to production/engineering. If we have a target sound that we want, I don't care what means necessary we take to get to the target, even if we take unconventional paths.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd like to work with any artist who has talent, and the passion/drive to back it up.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more. Stop recording stacked rhythm guitars. One pair of a certain part, panned hard left and right, will do the trick.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock (all types), Pop, Christian/Worship.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill on a technical level would be guitar tones and crisp editing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring a sense of focus.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If producing, I am all about the connection between the producer and the band. Having been on both sides of the spectrum, I know from years of experience how a positive relationship between the producer and the artist can make or break the vibe, much less the record. The goal is to make the song/album the best it can possibly be. If the band and producer are on the same team, they can both strive towards the goal of giving the art what it deserves. If mixing, I focus on making sure the SONG comes out of the mix. I hone in on what makes the song work, and what the special parts are, and let the mix reflect that. I never want a mix to leave my studio that I wouldn't want to release myself as an artist.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio that I built out of my basement. It's been acoustically treated (with PANELS, not just some cheap foam). I use Pro Tools 12 on my 2015 Mac. All the other gear is very conservative. A couple mics, an Mbox Pro (3rd gen), a few midi keyboards, a few guitars.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Let's get the obvious out of the way... Chris Lord Alge, although his brother, Tom, does win it for me with my favorite album mix of all time, "We Don't Need To Whisper" by Angels & Airwaves. Matt Goldman from Atlanta is one of my favorite engineers (I love his drums).
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
