After having spent many years working as a live instrumentalist and songwriter, Andrew has moved towards more studio-based production, composition and engineering.

Behind Andrew’s extensive work across a wide range of media platforms is a wealth of experience and expertise gained from years of working within in the industry alongside top level composers such as Marius De Vries, Danny Schogger, Matthew ‘Mash’ Cracknell & Bjarni Biering Margeirsson.
