    Andre is a pro at what he does, he did an amazing job mastering my song in the shortest period possible, and is also very pleasant and kind in communication.

    I would definitely recommend working with him. Thanks Andre!

  3. Review by pdrito

    Ive had the opportunity to work with Andre while recording our latest album "Seekers and Finders" (Gogol Bordello). His prefessionalism lead me to work with him again, mixing and mastering a solo project called NUFOLK Rebel Alliance. Love working with Andre, very intuitive and alert to details.

  4. Review by Heather Smith

    Andre was my sound re-recording mixer on my short film THE END. He was not just extremely knowledgeable and superb at his job, he was also very patient, a calming force. His dedication is a wonder to behold.

  5. Review by Tommy T

    I met and worked with Andre when we (Gogol Bordello) recorded our current album "Seekers and Finders". Andre was very professional, personable and incredibly knowledgeable. We felt at home the whole time we were there. As a matter of fact, a freindship was born out of the lovely, positive experience we've all had at Oscilloscope Studios, where Andre was the head hancho!

  6. Review by D.A. Stern

    What's most impressive about Andre is his commitment to excellence; he sets the bar high and will never stop until he is absolutely satisfied with whatever it is he is working on. No compromises. I learned so much from him and his devotion to sound and song are evident in his exceedingly creative approaches and ideas, which are always explorative yet perfectly tasteful. Truly inspiring.

  7. Review by Matt Ray

    Andre is a total pro. Sessions unfold easily and seamlessly with him at the helm. He's a whiz with getting good sounds, quick editing, and on the fly mixes so you can see where you are at while you are building a track. He's great at capturing live takes as well. He has quick ears and an easy but purposeful demeanor which makes working with him a breeze and a joy. Great at mixing/mastering too!

  8. Review by Neal Usatin

    dr. dre is what i like to call him (unofficially). he’s cool- as a person & under pressure. dedicates himself to the project fully. his approach is high level work with all artists without ego. understands nuances of sound engineering, and produces w/ creativity gained from his music background. a solid visual thinker as well, having had the pleasure of working on many film projects with andre.

  9. Review by Alex R.

    Andre is knowledgable in all aspecits of audio production. I've had the pleasure of
    working with him on several projects, he is professional, extremely tech savvy, and has great musical instincts. He will guide your projects to completion providing creative and technical input along the way. Highly recommend!

  10. Review by Carmine Covelli

    Andre is fantastic. Relaxed and on point. Everything you want and need when you enter the studio. I've worked with him on two different projects and he always performs in a way that brings out the best in all involved. He's quick to accommodate and great with feedback when needed. Love working with him!

  11. Review by Mike Jackson

    Andre puts me at ease each time I work with him because I know he’s going to capture the band the way we really sound. Not just through great production, mixing and engineering, but from an intuitive sense of how musicians operate and how to keep a session moving creatively and energetically. He captures the sense of a song right away, and makes it really come alive. Highly recommended!

  12. Review by Bridget Everett

    I love working with Andre! He is so knowledgeable, fast on his feet, hard-working, resourceful and sweet. He stayed late when we needed to and helped us accomplish our goals. A total pro. Look forward to working with him again soon!

  13. Review by Alon Ginzburg

    Excellent ears and a great heart, Andre is as skillful as he is passionate. I've had the pleasure of working with him on several projects and he has helped me on both technical and creative sides. He even had the patience to set up my home studio on more than one occasion and teach me how to improve my workflow. Endorsed with much love!

  14. Review by Sardor Davlenov

    Andre's experience and outstanding professionalism becomes apparent the moment you start working with him. He truly understands the mission of the artist and makes the mission his own. He will not be satisfied until your vision is realized and will strive to uphold his impressive reputation in the industry. I feel like I can say much more but his credentials certainly for themselves.
