• Andrew Herft





    My passion for music has led me to acquire specific skill sets that provide artists with the opportunity to grow and achieve to their highest potential, businesses and bands with the access to create beautiful and polished music, and event organisers to match their brand with memorable sounds.

Make pieces even more beautiful with unique arrangements by adding subtle backing vocals or including a full and rich orchestration. Full amenities provided with an adjacent breakout room for rehearsing or relaxing with video games while bandmates record in the studio.

    Lauro composed Natalia while touring with 'Trio Cantores del Trópico' in Ecaudor from 1938-1940. After publishing it, he named it after his daughter. 'Natalia' is by far the most famous of the four Venezuelan Waltzes, and one of my favourites to play.



    Live & Acoustic, 'Stay With Me' was a piece developed in 2012 with the help of another composer, Peter Aoun.
