Composer / Producer / Bass Player / Educator
I am really excited about having the chance to help you develop your musical ideas, your mixes, your musicianship, your career and anything else I can help with.
I have written, produced, and mixed over a thousand pieces of music and I have had something I created or helped shape, played somewhere in the world, every week for over 20 years, whether it be on radio, television, cinema, online or anywhere else you can think of. I have managed to do a few gigs along the way as well.
Music is about expressing yourself and creating magic. It is how I connect to other people and the world around me.
I am guessing that if you are on this site, it is probably the same for you. Not only that, but you are doing one of the smartest and most important things you could ever do. You are searching for the knowledge to better yourself and your music.
Let me help you discover new ways of approaching your music. Some things might be technical, if we are discussing your mixes. Some things might be physical, if we are talking about how you are with your instrument. I don't have all the answers, no one does, but I can promise you one thing. I will do my best to share with you as much as I can to help you on your way.
“Andrew is one of the finest musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with, as well as being a consummate artist in all areas of studio expertise. If you’re looking for someone with patience, experience and a calm logical mind to guide you on your musical journey then you’d be knocking at the right door!”
Neil Conti (Prefab Sprout, David Bowie, Annie Lennox)
" I have had the pleasure of working with this excellent musician on several occasions, he is totally professional and a gentleman, his mentoring skills and super impressive musical skills put him at the front of the class."
Steve Tannett (Music Director Marshall Amplification)
"I met Andrew through music, he’s such a creative musician. The more I got to know him, it became obvious why his music is so rich and rewarding, Andrew is a deep and inspiring soul."
C.J. Vanston (Prince, Toto, Carole King)
Experimental Composer / Performer
Inspiration to completion
I'm a musician working with an ever-changing array of genres, instruments, and practices, currently based in Chicago. Coming from a background in jazz and sound design, I try to discover how people, places, and technologies can have unique musical interactions, working as an active freelancer and cultural organizer who believes in the power and importance of seeking the unusual.
My influences and collaborators range from free improvisation to sound art to choral music to contemporary classical composition. I've released multiple albums and had my work featured at DOCNYC, the Darmstadt Fereinkurse (Germany), Steppenwolf Theater (Chicago), Trinity College Dublin, Nordic Percussion Festival, Ostrava New Music Days (Czech Republic), and the Banff Centre (Canada). I recently completed a PhD in Music Composition & Technology at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.
I believe in music's capacity for extending our ways of thinking about ourselves and the world, and in my feedback seek to help artists think broadly about what they can do with their unique skills and resources!

Tutor / Composer / Producer / Singer Songwriter
Premium feedback with audio/video demo/explanation
Hi! I am a professional musician, composer and tutor with 20 years actual teaching/mentoring behind me. Teaching and artist development is a deep passion for me, not just a "sideline" job, to "top-up" my other work ;-)
My name is Kevin Edge.
Classically trained on piano from the age of 7, and later complementing this groundwork with studying and playing jazz and other contemporary forms (pop/rock/funk/fusion/electronic/singer-songwriter etc), I have centred my life on the study, creation and performance of music in many different forms: piano, electric/acoustic guitar and clarinet, playing in bands, performing solo, songwriting, composition and production for TV and film/trailer music (including hybrid cinematic/orchestral), electronic music of all kinds, mixing and mastering, along with teaching, offering guidance and mentoring across all of these areas both privately and in college settings, including lecturing at the JMC Academy (counterpart to SAE) in Melbourne, Australia.
I work with clients to develop their mixing, mastering, singing. playing, composition, songwriting, production and applied music theory knowledge/skills, in order to progress their musicianship and empower them on their musical journey, be it as a career, or simply for their own personal creativity/expression etc.
I can guide and feedback across all these areas/layers, and draw links/connections between them, which can provide a powerful springboard for musical development, all in one place. Alternatively the feedback can be very focussed on one particular aspect, as the client wishes.

Vocal Performance Review
I am a music producer and recording engineer with over 25 years of experience. I am very experienced in full album productions for bands and solo artists. I have played guitar since I was 11 and can play bass and sing harmonies. I like to really dive into a song and work on every aspect of the arrangement, melodies, harmonies, lyrics, and rhythm. I can offer very good feedback for your original compositions. And I can make suggestions on recording styles, techniques, and production concepts that will help your songs really jump out of the speakers.
