About Us

Andrew McColley

ANDREW biopic

Andrew is known around town as "Underdog".

Andrew's first radio appearance was at the age of 3 when he was part of a commercial promoting his father's radio station As he grew up, he hung out in studios and learned all about how to make things sound great. He had his own radio show by his teens and started recording neighborhood bands around the same time.

He moved to the Valley in 2000, and started his recording studio shortly after getting here. It's moved several times, but is now settled into the location at 65 S Sycamore.

While he's working with state of the art gear, he knows it's not the equipment that makes for great sound, it's how you use it. He's been told he has "million dollar ears" and he knows how to draw the best out of just about any band or artist.
