A true Renaissance man, Slamm Andrews has combined his genius for music and astrophysics to become one of the most respected Music Editors and Sound Engineers in the industry today.
Born and raised in North County San Diego, he started recording and mixing music at the young age of 14. He began his vocation with a music scholarship to CSUN; majoring in Music, minoring in Astrophysics. While attending university, he worked at Vector Aeromotive building exotic cars. He then went on to the Trebas School for the Recording Arts. He subsequently excelled at Freddie Piros Studios where he worked with such artists as 311 and Matt Sorum, and was an integral part in the restoration of Elvis Presley's tube console from Sun Studios. Shortly thereafter, he was asked by 311 to join their tour for over two years while also mixing such greats as No doubt, Offspring, Pennywise, and Stone Temple Pilots.
By March of 1995, Andrews was interning with Academy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer. This internship lead him to the recording and mixing of albums for both Goldfinger and Reel Big Fish, as well as recording and mixing the feature film score for Zimmers' "Broken Arrow".
His relationship with Zimmer and Remote Control Productions has flourished, leading to work on such blockbuster hits as the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, "The Simpsons Movie", "Iron Man", and "X-Men First Class", as well as Zimmer's live concert performances.
Since 2003, Andrews has been nominated six times for Best Sound Engineer on such films as "Spirit" (2002), "Shark Tale" (2004), "Madagascar: Escape to Africa 2" (2008), and "Minions" (2015).
