AGM3 is a producer-duo featuring Andrew Greacen and Max McKee. The two began teaming up to produce records for independent artists and eventually moved into making original tracks for TV and advertising. Individually, Andrew has been a singer-songwriter gone producer/engineer for over 10 years, with a knack for sonic creativity and a natural ability to bring the best out of whoever he works with. Max started things off as a side man, playing bass for multiple American Idol finalists, Mike Stern (guitarist for Miles Davis, Brecker Brothers, Blood Sweat and Tears), and many others (including Andrew’s solo project). In the studio, Max serves as the instrumental Swiss army knife. As a duo, their top credits include placements with Facebook, Cigna, Taco Bell, AT&T, Panera, various pharmaceutical companies, and many others.
