2023 AES International Conference on Spatial and Immersive Audio — Keynote

Andrew Scheps

Andrew Scheps has engineered and mixed some of the biggest bands in the world: Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, Audioslave, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Linkin Park, Hozier, Kaleo and U2. He’s worked with legends such as Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and Iggy Pop, as well as indie artists such as Low Roar, My Brightest Diamond, Motorpsycho, Rancid, Manu Chao, Tinariwen, Farao, CRX, Cass McCombs and Blood Red Shoes. Andrew has been awarded Grammys for his work with Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ziggy Marley, and his work has garnered over 20 nominations in categories such as Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album and Best Hard Rock Performance. In addition, Andrew was named International Engineer of the Year Award by the UK’s Music Producers Guild. Though starting out as a musician, Andrew found that what he enjoyed most was working behind the scenes. He toured with Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, but he found his home in the studio, working for producers such as Rob Cavallo, Don Was and Rick Rubin. He has also produced Favez, Gogol Bordello, The Duke Spirit, Motorpsycho, Marti Pellow, and Low Roar among others. In 2011 Andrew started Tonequake Records, a boutique indie label with acts including Low Roar, Favez, Fellow Robot, Act Rights, and Jeff Babko. After 25 years in Los Angeles, Andrew relocated to the UK in July 2015 where he set up his own mix room which is now equipped for Dolby Atmos Music. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Huddersfield in 2022. He also develops custom software for controlling Pro Tools to make his life easier. He hasn’t left his house a whole lot since March 2020.
