Andrew has been composing music for many years since he was a teenager, releasing a self-published album of instrumental electronic music at the age of 18. He is a graduate of the acclaimed Tonmeister degree in Music and Sound Recording from the University of Surrey, where he studied music and sound recording techniques. He later went on to study for a Masters degree in Composing Music for Moving Images at City University of London, earning the award of distinction.
He began his music career immediately after university, working as a music programmer and recording engineer at prestigious London studios, including the renowned Falconer Studios, where he worked with celebrated artists and composers including Boy George, Mica Paris, Paul Young, The Brand New Heavies, NightCrawlers, Maxi Jazz, Michael J. McEvoy and many others.
Andrew’s main compositional focus has always been instrumental music, more recently music for picture. He is a classically trained clarinet player and also plays saxophone and piano. Being an accomplished recording engineer as well as an experienced composer means that his compositions are recorded and produced to the highest technical standards.
