Welcome to the website of Musician, Sound Engineer, Sound Healer, Shamanic Practitioner and Sound and Video Artist:
I perform at concerts, weddings, ceremonies, sound meditations, festivals, workshops and other events here at Awakening Centre, around the Maleny area and beyond. Please contact me if you have an enquiry, a booking or a suggested venue for my music.
My music is always uplifting and transformative. I incorprate elements of many styles and traditions (folk, world, electronica, ambient) into a smooth and delightful synthesis. I play acoustic and electric guitars, guitar synth, cittern (10-string irish bouzouki), tin whistle, ba wu (chinese free reed flute), kora, bass, fiddle, percussion, keyboards and several other instruments, and my passion is the creation of magical soundscapes using electronic enhancement of all these elements. You can see some photos of my instrument collection on our Gallery page.

Recording and Music Production
Awakening Centre has a well-equipped boutique recording and music production studio and rehearsal space looking out into a deep rainforest-filled gully. The studio uses ProTools, Reason, Sibelius, Ableton and a range of other packages, some fine microphones and monitors and a relaxed, creative environment. Andy’s skills include arrangement, composition and sequencing, as well as playing loads of instruments.
He takes on projects as partnerships with selected like-minded creative people
There's a gallery of images of some of Andy's instruments here.
Recent projects include "Om Shanti", a CD for yoga by Radiant Light; "The Seeker", a solo CD for Yandina-based singer Radha Bornstein; a solo project for Russell Hibbs (from Mullumbimby) and "Experience the Freedom Within", a meditation CD for Sunshine Coast psychologist Vanessa Bushell.
Andy also records all his own albums at Awakening Centre, as well as all the soundscapes used in the various meditations and workshops he and Laurel run.
