Andrew Hunt is a London based record producer. Originally from the Midlands, Andrew has over thirty years of musical experience gained from a variety of roles.
He started his musical career playing in bands, both in the Midlands and then London. As well as being a multi-instrumentalist, as a singer songwriter he has had a number of publishing and production deals. These have included J. Albert & Sons (AC/DC’s publishers) and Bird & Bush (Stereophonics’ producers).
A few years ago, whilst playing session guitar on an album in Liverpool’s Elevator Studios, Andrew made the move behind the desk taking on the role of producer. Since then he has worked with a wide variety of artists, producing many styles and genres, in a number of famous (and not so famous) studios.
His background would suggest a speciality in recording bands but he is just as comfortable working with artists in a writer/producer capacity where his multi-instrumental abilities or programming skills are put to their full use.
Over the years Andrew has obsessively honed his skills, not only as a producer but as an engineer and mix engineer too. Although he is completely self-taught, he has enjoyed the pleasure of working on projects with Grammy winners’ Jimmy Hogarth, Cameron Craig and Simon Gogerly. Recently these skills were fully recognised by him reaching the shortlist of both Breakthrough Producer Of The Year AND Breakthrough Engineer Of The Year in next year's 2017 MPG Awards. An honour in itself.
Andrew very much agrees in the belief that the producer is the hidden member of the band. Coming from the musician’s standpoint he strives to realise the vision of the music, whilst trying to offer his all to make every track as strong as possible.
As well as making music, Andrew is actively involved in supporting the interests of the music industry as both an MPG LIPA Graduate Award mentor and an Executive Director of the Music Producers Guild.
Andrew is one of the most approachable people in the industry; so if you think you’d like to work with him, please do get in touch!
