We’ve just had this nigh on perfect email looking for more work. Now, admittedly, Andy has already worked with us, so it’s easy to start a conversation. But he doesn’t just ask for work. He shares some of his new work and cheerfully suggests discussing any new projects. This email feels like an invitation to collaborate, not just ‘I need a job’.

And actually, we do have a project that needs music, we’d been looking at a music library, however, now that he’s reminded us he’s available, I’ll give him an email with a brief, just incase he can do something on budget for what we’re after.

Here’s his email below – and he’s a great composer as well! Check him out at www.andysimms.co.uk


Hi Gavin,

I hope all is well, that you are all busy with lots of interesting projects!

Just thought I would drop you a line to let you know some highlights of what I’ve been up to of late:

Nike Football
Great British Chefs
Margaret Howell
De La Espada

Also just completed are more TV documentary series for Sky (although I hope that with more gangsters and serial killers I’m not getting too typecast….!). As ever, full details at www.andysimms.co.uk.

It would be great to discuss any projects that you have coming up that would benefit from some music, or to catch up in general.

Speak soon, all the very best
