Andy Simms is a composer and sound designer. His original music and immersive soundscapes have been used in countless ad campaigns, TV shows and installations.

His skills as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and conductor have been deployed in a wide range of media and genres, from beatboxing for interactive installations at London Luton Airport, through scoring music and crafting soundscapes for exhibitions at the Louvre, Versailles and the V&A, to taking up the conductor’s baton, wrangling a 50 piece orchestra live to a sell-out crowd at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s South Bank.

He has worked with some of the biggest brands, scoring numerous documentaries, commercials and films and his music can be heard in television productions across the globe. 

“I’ve worked with Andy for quite a few years as a composer and sound designer. His work is top notch and the process is always a pleasure. He just “gets it” – and that’s a fantastic quality, especially when you’re under pressure. Can’t recommend Andy highly enough.”

“Andy has a great knowledge of music – composing, arranging, conducting and performing – he understands intuitively how to use music to enhance mood, tension, pace and character, but he also writes cues which are memorable pieces of music in their own right. Working with a composer for the first time is always nerve-wracking as you’re never sure if they’ll ‘get’ the brief, but I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy to anyone commissioning music.”

“Arrangements polished off with efficiency and delivered right on time; with the added bonus of knowledge, insight and flair, ANDY SIMMS brought to life, firstly on the album ‘Back to the Cat’, the horns I heard in my head and made colourful additions via voicing, expressions and motif. Andy also took on the enormous responsibility of bringing to life arrangements old and new and adding his own unique spin on what I wanted, for an evening of ‘Favourite Themes’ performed with my group plus an additional orchestral ensemble. All went well thanks to Andy’s sense of discipline and organisation and utmost professionalism, which Andy imbues his work with from the idea stage to the finale and beyond.”
