WE WOULD START CREATING A VIBE FROM MINUTE ONE...
So now that you can do everything on your own you’re all good right?…right?
I know how overwhelming it can feel to get started. Heck, I’ve been a struggling artist for most of my adult life. But I believe in the philosophy of beginning with the end in mind and getting a vibe from Minute One! And I believe I can help that approach work for you and benefit you with your productions.
Working with me you get a trusted set of hands that can teach you how to navigate the entire production, mixing and mastering phases on your own. I’m a multi-instrumentalist and can play most of the instruments found in typical pop or rock productions. For anything else, I’ll show you how we can leverage platforms like SoundBetter, Landr, and various sound libraries and MIDI packs to get the job done right.
I work with indie artists just like yourself all the time to create finished productions with vibe and soul. I believe in getting a vibe from Minute One and then taking a whatever-it-takes approach to deliver a solid, releasable track using my unique approach that begins with the end in mind. At every step of the way, we’ll be laying down parts that sound definitive and perfectly support your song ideas.
Whether you are just starting out with a capella on your iPhone or you have something more fleshed out with chords, I can meet you where you are and take you where you want to go.
So start beginning with the end in mind now and build a vibe from Minute One by booking a consultation call with Andrew today!
