Andy Thompson's approach to orchestration is simple: Make something brand new. Delight the listener. And give everyone involved a reason to pour their heart out on stage or in the studio. Andy has arranged or conducted for artists such as Taylor Swift, Dessa, Cloud Cult, Belle and Sebastian, jeremy messersmith, Jason Mraz, Chastity Brown, Eric Hutchinson, and Makana. His orchestrations have been heard in New York, Minneapolis, Honolulu, Wales, and points in between. Classically trained but steeped in popular music, he's just as comfortable writing for a jazz quartet as he is a 70-piece orchestra. See below for examples of his work.
