At ASTAR STUDIOS our philosophy is to provide a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and perfect environment for artists to express themselves and craft timeless recordings that capture the creative spirit, skill and energy of their performance. Conceived by international writer/producer Andy Ross the studio has been custom built to offer a one-stop recording solution for today’s independent artists and labels looking to take their projects all the way.
Andy is an accomplished musical innovator with a wealth of studio experience and a recent Mercury Prize ‘Album of the Year’ to his credit. A multi-instrumental and hugely experienced musician, Andy is an international contract songwriter for Clippers Music, one of the world's most respected publishers, whose catalogue stretches from Elvis Presley to Christina Aguilera and Coldplay. Andy has kept himself at the forefront of advances in music production and in 2008 opened Astar Studios where he produces every project personally and where required is able to draw upon some of the UK’s finest session musicians.
As a writer and producer, Andy is both prolific and versatile and can easily adapt to the discipline of any genre. As a musician, who has worked on both sides of the glass he has all the skills and empathy required to help artists give their best performance in the studio.
Despite Andy’s roots being in rock and pop, he has also produced recordings for the covers of Classic FM, Pianist Magazine and is now well renowned for his jazz recordings, receiving 4 star reviews from the Guardian and Observer critics.

"I am impressed with Andy Ross as a producer and musician. Our experience with Astar was top notch and my client Nikki Garnett thoroughly enjoyed her time spent in this wonderful studio with Andy, whose creative skills and ability to come up with great ideas is outstanding. Andy has a very calm personality and made Nikki feel comfortable from the start. He was able to get the best out of her and organization was always thorough and professional I will bear the team in mind for future projects."
