Simon Roberts - Lyric Media Group

I met Andrew Keeping at the Royal Academy of Music, here in London, when we were students together. I was studying singing, and Andrew the Classical Guitar. He approached me with some music by Stephen Dodgson he wanted to perform (Andrew’s knowledge of repertoire is impressive), and we ended up performing a number of concerts together, culminating in a recital at St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, in the presence of the composer himself. It was an unforgettable experience. 
 
Upon graduating, our careers took us off towards the four corners of the Globe, and I lost touch with him for some time. When my Opera career came full circle, and for health reasons I was forced to prematurely quit that stage, I returned to the UK, and began writing and producing music during my convalescence. 
 
It was at this point that I came across Andrew again, and was delighted when saw he had also begun his own business and music studio, and was also establishing himself as a composer. We immediately picked up the friendship we had shared while at college, and began looking for projects on which we could collaborate together.
 
As we began to catch up with each other’s lives, I was touched deeply by the way Andrew described the extraordinary work he and his wife are doing with young people, welcoming foster-children, many victims of abuse, and helping them rebuild their lives as members of the Keeping family. Although that doesn’t really surprise me: you couldn't be as good a musician as Andrew is, without being at least as good a human being.
 
To date, Andrew and I have collaborated on several projects. “The American Dream?” (https://classicalbanksy.bandcamp.com), which features Andrew on Electric Guitar and fellow RAM alumnus Oliver Preece on trumpet, marked the launch of my label Lyric Media Group, in early 2017. This was followed up in Spring 2017 by my remix of Ray Tarantino’s “Futureblind,” (originally recorded in 2014), with Andrew providing some absolutely stunning Classical and Electric guitar. We have also worked together on commercial music for - literally - some household names, including Glade. 
 
The chance to get together with Andrew and make music the way we do, is always something I look forward to, because I know it will always be both a joy and a success. His musicality, versatility and sensitivity are unparalleled in my opinion. I trust his opinion and input implicitly. His criticism is always constructive, gentle and invaluable. As a former singer, I can at times be more histrionic than an instrumentalist would tend to be. Thankfully Andrew is the kind of guy who can take all that in his stride. I feel lucky to count such such a talented colleague among my collaborators, and privileged to be able to call him a friend.

PAUL FOOT - Audi Car Salesman

and Karaoke King of Rochester, Kent.

 

For many years I have had a "scratch that needed itching", I always fancied the idea of spending time in a recording studio and creating something that I could keep for posterity, but probably like most of us, never got around to summoning up the courage to actually do it.
I have always enjoyed singing (in the shower mainly!), and in the previous years have suffered from delusions of grandeur and thought I may have been destined for better things, but realised as time has rolled on that I just wasn't good enough!
Then just when I thought retirement was on the cards, my wife booked me a recording session with Andrew Keeping. As a normally fairly confident chap, I must admit nerves were kicking in a bit. A recording studio can be quite an intimidating environment without the right guiding hand.
I have to say Andrew relaxed me very quickly, and not only did he put together a great track for me, he instructed me in a very easy to follow a to b fashion, which suited me perfectly as a complete novice.
Yes, I got a really professional great sounding song with me singing lead vocals on it! Which my ego enjoyed, but I have to say what really surprised me was Andrews tips and tuition which was a real education.
It was great to walk away with a track to keep, but I also walked away from the day as a more accomplished, better amateur singer than I did before I met Andrew. This was worth more than just a recorded song that you would probably get elsewhere. Andrew improved me as singer via the friendly, informative teaching he provided.
I cant recommend him more to my wannabe friends!!!!!

    Andrew came into our school to record a CD in 2016. It was a real treat for the children - he made them feel at ease and he made the children feel like professional recording artists. We were all delighted with the results and I would recommend him to anyone contemplating a similar project.

    Excellent job, guys! And the thing like most is how Andrew has captured the fun Paul was clearly having doing this. That's one of the hallmarks of a great music producer - a happy studio! And Paul - this is certainly something to be very proud, because you remind us what he true meaning of amateur is - for fun! Can I have a free Audi now? :-))

    Andrew came to my house with all his equipment to record a Christmas CD with me and my family and friends. We bid for the recording at the FAS Ball last September and successfully won it. Jamie Johnson joined us in the recording as he was the Entertainment at the ball the night we attended. In total there was 20 of us that included Grandparents, Children and pets!! We had a fabulous day and the cd sounds amazing(not like us). Andrew is a fantastic, talented musician.

    I first went to Andrew in the early 90's to re-invent my guitar playing, having not played much for the previous 5 years. Andrew totally inspired me and got me back on track with the guitar and song writing with his enthusiasm for what I thought was a lost cause !!!I Soon I had enough songs to make a CD and again he contributed on this by his immaculate guitar playing and advice. Andrew is now producing and arranging my 3rd CD. I can honestly say, that if it wasn't for his mentoring, creativity & patience, I wouldn't be still playing guitar and writing songs. To me, Andrew is a true friend and a fantastic Mentor. That's why I call him Maestro !!

    Andrew is a real inspiration when recording, he can detect new sounds in your voice that perhaps you wouldn’t have known were there and always in a gentle and encouraging way. Andrew makes you feel
    completely at ease when recording and makes it fun! I would highly recommend him for any recording needs; he will make a professional and bespoke piece of work for any musician.

    Being an extremely talented guitarist, Andrew shows another talent of recording the classical guitar to the highest of standards. I spent two days in the studio setting up, testing the sound and
    playing. As a student, it was a great experience learning the art of creating a clean acoustic sound by placement of mic's and mixing. After a very stressful session playing, I now have a
    professionally recorded album which I could not be happier with. I just want to give a massive thanks to Andrew for being a great mentor over years and helping me finish an album I've been wanting to
    make for years.
