I have wanted to work with Andy Horrocks for a long time and was delighted to finally have that opportunity with my sixth CD project, “Carry Me Home”. I came to Andy with a lot of stress and a tight deadline. He immediately put me at ease with his gentle, positive spirit of encouragement. Then I watched as he set to work, doing what he does best. Andy is a hard-working, multi-talented musician, producer and engineer with a wealth of knowledge and experience. He strives for excellence and knows how to achieve it.
What impressed me most was Andy’s gift of production. As a singer-songwriter, I would present my songs to him in the simplest form - a voice and basic acoustic guitar part. He immediately knew how to best develop a full production, always considering my over-all vision as an artist. He has access to some of Canada’s finest session musicians and gets the job done - within budget and to an exceptionally high standard of excellence.
Not only is Andy a man of great integrity, humour and warmth, he really is a profoundly gifted professional. Now I know why everyone wants to work with this guy. He’s the real deal.
