Andrew Weathers

About

Andrew Weathers (b.1988) is a composer and improviser originally from Chapel Hill, NC and currently based in Littlefield, TX. His work engages with notions of place, tradition, repetition, and spirit. Weathers studied composition at UNC-Greensboro and electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, CA.

A consistent presence in the underground music scene over the past decade, Weathers’ work covers a wide spectrum from solo acoustic guitar to electronic noise. He also performs and records regularly with Tethers, Real Life Rock & Roll Band, Tender Crust, Wind Tide, Satin Spar, Llano Estacado Monad Band and in long-running collaborations with Seth Chrisman and tanner menard, among others. In addition to his busy performing schedule, Weathers operates the Full Spectrum and Other Minds record labels, curates the Longitudes music series at CO-OPt Research + Projects in Lubbock, TX and works as a freelance mixing and mastering engineer.

Mastering

Andrew Weathers provides mixing, mastering, and restoration services for a diverse variety of genres and projects, with a decade of experience. Weathers works out of his studio Wind Tide, a renovated storefront in downtown Littlefield, TX. Previous masters have been released on Tompkins Square, Orange Milk, Whited Sepulchre, Astral Spirits, Out and Gone, Feeding Tube, and many more.

As every project is completely different, and Weathers strives to make professional audio work available to a variety of budgets, rates are sliding scale. Please email Weathers directly at the address above with a description of your project for a quote. Please also refer to the AW Discogs page for a more thorough (though not complete) list of projects that have come through his studio.
