Performing Arts: Music; Sound Engineer
Born and raised in the hills of Mendocino County, Lincoln Andrews has devoted his life to studying and producing the art of sound and music. After graduating from a digital sound arts program in the San Fransisco Bay Area, Lincoln and his father built a remote cabin in Dos Rios to use as a home base and artist retreat from the travels to come.

Shortly thereafter, Lincoln built a career as a freelance sound engineer in the city of San Francisco. Teaching music production courses at the Academy of Art University, working for venues like the SFJAZZ Center and the Boom Boom Room, as well as doing sound in the corporate world for Facebook, Google, and many others. After finding himself working long hours for multiple companies in order to stay afloat in the exorbitant economy of SF, he realized he had put his music in the background of his life. He decided to give it all up, move to New York City and put all his time and energy into playing the bass. This was short lived, as it turned out the life of a NYC musician is a difficult one. Performing a summer tour with his older brother ‘Blue Luke’ in his home county of Mendocino reinvigorated the idea of returning home.
The pandemic hit us hard, and artists got the worst of it. An entire two years of paid events were cancelled. Lincoln took his chances on the road and drove to Mexico with a fellow musician. He immediately found himself performing in three different bands and was able to make a living as a musician for the following two years.
Lincoln has since settled in the town of Fort Bragg, building a small sound company capable of providing audio production services (recording/mixing/mastering), live sound reinforcement, and a fat low end for all the local bands. With over 10 years of teaching experience and 15 years of performing experience, Lincoln has his hands and ears in all aspects of music in this community. He channels the unique experiences he has acquired from around the world and expresses them directly through his instrument.
