Andy Carr on SoundBetter

Professional and versatile bass player who's credits include ABC, Belinda Carlisle, Bruce Dickinson and William Bell offers a wealth of experience and ideas to your musical project. Remote studio mixing service also available.

Since my early rock roots playing on the Bruce Dickinson solo album Tattooed Millionaire, I have been fortunate to have spent the last 30 years playing bass live and recording with a wide variety of artists and fantastic musicians! I have also been engineering, producing and mixing music for nearly as long! I can record live, bespoke bass lines for your music remotely, through a very high quality DI unit (or amplifier, if required). I cover a range of styles from rock & blues, to soul & pop and have a good selection of both fretted and fretless, four and five-string basses, to help find the sound and performance that moves you and your audience. The bass line will be optimised to 'drop into' your mix with little processing required. Just send a simple mp3 mix of your song and we can work together from there, to the finished product.

If you are looking for more help with your music than just the bass line, I also offer a mixing service. I enjoy mixing as much as I do playing bass and will work to fine tune every detail of the sound to get your music sounding at its best! I work on Logic X Pro but can mix from any audio file format.

I look forward to working with you remotely or in person and helping you to create, optimise and realise your musical ideas!

    Andy brought not only fantastic bass playing to our project but also helped us in getting the best sounding record we could. He was able to understand exactly what we wanted musically and integrate with our project very quickly and it was very easy to work with him. Andy's bass lines were exceptionally well played and recorded at his studio and his vast knowledge, experience and attention to detail made the whole process a whole lot easier for us. He helped turn our album into something we are extremely proud of. I would highly recommend Andy Carr and look forward to working with him again.

    Andy is the consummate professional, the gold standard in session bass. I employed him on the hit Christmas movie 'Nativity' (for which I produced the soundtrack) and his work was simply flawless. If the bass is the foundation of a record, you won't build a more solid house than with Mr Carr laying down the groove.

    Andy's record mixing skills are also superb - two for the price of one. Safe to say I'm a fan!

    I have known Andy for many years from our work across the world together as touring musicians with major stars. To be in that world you not only need to have the playing ability, which Andy has...across a wide range of genres, but you also need to be a team player, which he also is. The human qualities are so often THE difference when it comes to getting a great outcome ...whether live or in the studio, and I would not hesitate to recommend Andy for anyone's project. as I know he'll give it everything he has.
