Andre's got it. It's pretty simple. There's no need to wax poetic about his prowess (though you could certainly do it), but I will say this: his ear is true, his chops are sharp, and his output is keen and vital. If you're here considering Andre, I wouldn't look any further. End search.

Andre was super fast and clear in communicating what he wanted! I highly recommend him! Talented producer! God bless you!
I’ve worked with Andre many times over the last decade. It’s hard for me to say what element of his musicianship is most impressive. I think I was first struck by his vocal prowess and songwriting. But the more time we spent making music together so many other things came to the fore: Andre’s production and arranging skills; his infectious sense of groove; ability to assemble and direct an A-list musical team; a breadth of stylistic knowledge and diversity of influences always punctuated by an unmistakable signature sound. Maybe most crucial is his message and how it captivates his listeners.
Andre is a true talent and person of music. His style of collaboration is very open and engaging. He understands what’s best for a record and knows how to achieve it.
Work with Andre!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andre since last August. He is a talented, dependable and innovative songwriter, producer and musician. Andre is easy to be around, great at communicating and adds value to any project he works on.
I worked with Andre to create music for my forthcoming podcast and he made this a really fun process. We talked about what genres and artists I appreciated, the types of instruments worked for me, and the vibe I was trying to set in my show. I had a blast working with him to take something from concept to production and think you will too.
