Andre Upston has been recording live music since he was a boy, and has continued to do so his whole life. He's made albums with Bic Runga, Anika Moa, Dudley Benson, and more, and is RNZ Auckland's long-time Music Engineer - meaning often when you hear a band playing live on this station, Andre is responsible.
