“After years mastering albums in New York and LA, as well as Toronto, I brought a project to Andy a couple of years back and was blown away by his work. The facilities and the staff at Silverbirch made it a great experience but most important, Andy has world class ears and a great heart. I’ve brought several more albums to him since, and have never been disappointed. Here’s to many more!”

The sound you pulled out of the duo recording is wonderful. I never liked this recording until you mastered it.. somehow you revealed another level of musical detail that I wasn’t really attuned to before.

this is Enrico Crivellaro. I never had a chance to meet you or even email you, but I have been meaning to get in touch with you for a long time and thank you for the fantastic job you did in mastering the two CD’s that I made for Electro-Fi (one under my name and the more recent one by Finis Tasby). Andrew Galloway speaks very highly of you and I can definitely understand why–every CD I’ve heard, that you mastered, sounds outstanding.
I am writing also because I just finished recording a soon-to-be CD with my European organ trio–Hammond B-3, drums, and guitar. We would definitely like to send the mixes to you for the mastering. Please let me know if and when you have time to do it.
Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing from you.

airmail was very quick–I received the master two days ago and Raphael did today. We both think it sounds killer! As always you did a fantastic job. The sound is way nicer now and I particularly like the bottom end, which is often a big concern on organ trio records.
Thank you very much! The CD should be ready in January, I will send you a copy. In the meantime have a Merry Christmas, and I hope we’ll get to work together again in the near future.

GREAT, GREAT stuff. I really like the master to our CD “Mosquito bite”.
If you have time I would like to have you to master my new Solo CD – I´ll have the mix in the first days of january – so the mixing engineer could send you all the stuff to your server in the first days of Jan. Do ya have time to master that one then? Little bit more souljazzy stuff…
I wish you all the best, merry X-mas and a happy new year!

Thanks to you and your team for the excellent job, perfection! Much, much
appreciated! Hope to get back to you with more production in the near
I just wanted to drop you a note telling you how GREAT my disc
sounds… better than I ever could have dreamed. It has all the qualities
now I couldn’t put on it myself–warmth, sparkle and all that. And the
bottom end PUMPS, especially on track 9.
Am getting the final design materials together for the manufacturing and
will bring it in sometime in the next two weeks. Had a nice chat with Ron
when I came in to pick it up, he is a great guy too.
I am finishing up my first vinyl releases and will be bringing them in
sometime this spring. I feel a lot more confident in my mixes now knowing
what can be done to them at your end.
Just want to say thanks so much for turning this project around so quickly
for us. All went well and everyone was happy.

Thank you so much for the great sound — stellar job as usual!!
Over the last couple of days, I’ve tried the master out on a number of
different systems and it translates incredibly well. My brother was saying
he couldn’t believe how clear the mixes sounded…. and I definitely agree!

When I walked into Silverbirch I hoped you and Terry could salvage what I started a few years back. Let me say the work that was done exceeded my expectations and lived up to my hopes.
Where this project was when I walked in the door in June and where it is now can only be measured in light years! It now sounds like a CD and I can play it for people without trotting out that old tired list of excusess. Who could ask for anything more? I want to thank you both. You will be hearing from me again.”

I had my single “choked up” which was on heavy rotation on FLOW 93.5 this past summer which was mastered at your studio for an amazing price and really nice quality.
thank you for your time and continued success,
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for the great work you did mastering our material. Steve and I listened to the mastered mixes and we were both amazed at how infinitely better it all sounds! We really enjoyed the experience and hope to work with you again.
I just wanted to follow up on the Cd you made for the Peterborough Singers Pop Ensemble. It is wonderful. Bruce did a great job with the insert and everyone who has purchased it is enjoying it so much. Thank you for your professional work. At this time, we may be 1/2 sold and I was wondering how long it would take to make a second run, if we should need it. How many days will it take to run another 500 copies?
Take care. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving, and thanks again.
Thanks for doing a great job! Everyone here is very pleased. Many compliments on the organic nature of the sound.
We are planning a record release for January, so if you’re around Edmonton in January…. We’ll have a ticket on reserve for you. Thanks for putting the icing on an already great album, we appreciate the ears!!

I’m hoping you’ll remember mastering my polka record, the Ed Vrscay Trio on March the 18th.
I just realized I never got back to you to let you know (as if it wasn’t obvious at this point) that the master turned out flawlessly. There were no audible anomalies on the CD itself and sonically the record is incredible thanks to you!
Hope to work with you again sometime soon,
hey andy, the master is really wicked. thank you so much! Tamara and I are very happy with it… no touchups needed. it sounds perfect.
