In The Begining

I was born in Oxford, the youngest of three children. My father ran his own successful pharmacy while my mother kept house. I had a carefree childhood with endless summers full of chasing through the woods and days on the river. The very stuff of Boys Own. I enjoyed school and was particularly proud to attend Oxford Boys with it’s sense of tradition and mythical former pupil T.E Lawrence. Better known as Lawrence Of Arabia. It was there that my interest in music and the arts first started to bloom.

School Band To Producer

I started my musical life in a synthy duo but quickly traded it in for a place playing keyboards in a psychedelic rock band. We all lived together, partied together and toured, toured, toured. Carefree times in a battered old mini van when we felt we could conquer the world. However it couldn’t last and I headed for London looking for a job in a recording studio. I had no real idea of what I wanted, I just knew I was in love with all the toys and the studio was the only place I wanted to be. I did the usual run of Tape-op to Engineer and then onto Producing and once again making written contributions and recording as an artist. I have had the privilege of working with a few of the world’s greatest musicians and have recorded everybody from the fantastically famous to the obscure and sometimes bloody awful. Coffee adverts, film soundtracks, electro, ambient, rock, jazz and back again. Remixes, concept albums, pushy Japanese executive producers, excesses of every type, monk like existence, and every station in between. After a few years the dream started to fall apart for me and I knew it was a time for a change. Work was no problem as my management kept me supplied with things to do and I’d reached a point where I no longer had to be based in London to work, but it just wasn’t the same anymore and so I quit. Back then the last bit of commercial work I did was a remix for Tony Banks from Genesis. More than ten years past and it wasn’t until my fourteen year old son started to ask about the framed discs hanging on the wall or what dad had done for a job before that I started to think about all my old gear in storage in the cellar. I dragged it out and after playing around for a few weeks was surprised to find out that I was enjoying myself, and that it was so easy to start writing again. Maybe I had something to say after all and the ideas just started to spill out. Since then, as well as performing live as afp. I have released eight solo albums, two live double albums, written incidental music for film, and produced, mixed, remixed and mastered for other artists.


Creating Soundscapes Of Ambient Bliss To Tease & Please Your Senses

Andy Falconer Projects functions as a creative umbrella. Bringing together under one roof a presentation of some of my creative interests and projects. There will be regular New Releases as well as information and presentation of other new works and collaborations. If you don’t want to miss a thing then I recommend that you drop me an email and sign up for my Newsletter. 
HISTORY   A Partial Chronological History I say partial as there are so many sessions that have been partly forgotten or I don’t have any concrete info on any more. What’s listed is certainly not necessarily the most meaningful or biggest names. They are just the things that come to mind now. There has just been so much and when looking back, some things are clear and others are unfortunately clouded. If I’ve left you out, please forgive me.
