Every singers nightmare is not being able to hear. Well I can safely say no complaints with Andy Taylor and his crew. Perfect from start to finish. Great mix on and off stage. Great gear and someone who really knows his stuff. Not to mention incredibly easy to deal with. Nothing is too much effort. First call for me from now on!

Lisa Page – ABBA Experience

I have known Andy for many years. Firstly as a senior technical operator for the Sydney Convention Centre and as a personal friend and colleague. His attention to detail is outstanding, his knowledge in providing a balanced and pleasant audio mix is second to none.  His can do attitude mixed with an abundance of knowledge makes for a very pleasant experience in whatever Andy does.  I know he will do very well in his new venture and wish him well, and cant wait to work with him again!

Fed Lubke – Rock Redemption

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andy when he was booked for production for one of my live shows. Andy is a professional & skilled sound Technician. He had excellent quality equipment and managed to achieve a fantastic live mix in a difficult room. Andy was very obliging & worked well with the band to ensure everyone was happy with the on stage sound. I really hope to work with him again soon.

Ryan Hazell and Andy Taylor are among a handful of Australia’s finest FOH engineers…together they make a very reliable and stress free team and are my preferred suppliers for every event.

Stephen Sewell – Kingdom Sounds

“I have had the pleasure of working with Ryan and Andy for the past three years. In the time that I have dealt with them, I have found them to be extremely customer serviced focused not only towards myself, but also the artists we work with. They pull a great mix and provide state of the art gear, all at a really low cost. I would recommend Coastal Audio to any fellow promoters and agents with the highest regard”

Rob Carroll (Kingdom Sounds / Various Artists)

“In 20 years of playing live, I can safely say that I have never had a better, smoother and more organic and well balanced sound on and off stage, than with Andy. He’s got magic ears and magic fingers”

Altiyan Childs

“I have used all of the supposedly best sound engineers in Sydney at various times until I discovered Andy Taylor who now mixes all my acts. ”

John Martinovic – Altiyan Childs/The Art

“Andy delivered a great sounding mix, on a deadline. We were very happy with the results and plan to use him again in the future.”

John Patterson – Chasing Bailey

“Andy Taylor has done live audio for many different bands I have been involved with over the years. Even at the start of my career when there was some shitty PA he had to work with , he managed to pull an amazing sound. When I had the recent launch of my EP at the Gaelic Club I knew I did not want to risk it to anyone else but the best in the business, so I hired Andy. What was really cool was he also wore one of my band merch t-shirts while doing the gig.”

Yolanda Thomas – Yolanda and the Stolen Boys

“Andy Taylor = audio engineering genius!”

Chris Cooke – Affiliated Artists Entertainment

When Andy is behind the desk, what’s coming out of the PA sounds world class! Guaranteed audio excellence.
