Andrew Ratcliffe

CEO/Recording Instructor

Andrew Ratcliffe and Tweed Recording were staples of the north Mississippi music scene for two decades, developing long-term relationships with musicians, whether local or not, that went beyond the microphones and amps. Some had names that ring out nationally and internationally, such as Jars of Clay, Jimbo Mathus, Will Hoge, Pokey LaFarge, American Aquarium, and Cedric Burnside. Others were Oxford favorites hoping to lay down their tracks for an EP or LP.

Athens’s reputation already precedes it. It has long been a go-to place for great music, and it has a scene that is ripe for making the most of Andrew’s experience and expertise in the studio and in the broader community. Tweed Recording may have been born and raised in Oxford and north Mississippi, but Athens and the state of Georgia stands to benefit from its fuller maturation into a school, recording center, and community for the arts.

What Our Students Are Saying

My instructor’s been pretty awesome, his name’s Nate. He taught me to use Ableton. He’s super knowledgeable and I’ve enjoyed the process of how we’ve been doing it so far.

I had a wonderful experience with your staff and faculty, y’all truly care and seem to have a vested, true interest in our well being in and outside of the facility. In fact, I am quite stunned at the degree to which I was helped with my problems.
