Audiofile Magazine on THE LAST KARANKAWAS by Kimberly Garza:

"André Santana shines as Jess[...] Together, these rich performances, a chorus of different tones and accents, create a beautiful tapestry of a complicated city and the people who call it home."


 


Earphones Award for STORIES FROM THE TENANTS DOWNSTAIRS by Sidik Fofana:


"[...]Sidik Fofana and a stand-out cast of performers transport listeners to the Banneker Terrace apartments in Harlem. Written in vibrant Black American vernacular, these witty, sad, uplifting stories are ideal for audio[...] They're all unforgettable."

August 2022 Must-Listen selection by Apple Books


Audiofile Magazine on THE SUNBEARER TRIALS by Aiden Thomas:

"André Santana narrates this exhilarating audio inspired by Mexican mythology and folklore[...] Santana nimbly captures Teo's cheerful nature and his frustration with the divisions between the children of greater and lesser gods[...] Santana keeps the tension in his narration taut as Teo wrestles with both physical challenges and his own feelings of inferiority."



 


Audiofile Magazine on MOONFLOWER by Kacen Callender:

"André Santana's haunting performance makes perfect sense for this audiobook[...] Santana gives a strong sense of Moon's feelings of isolation in the face of prejudice and misunderstanding[...] As Moon finds relief in the spirit realm, Santana's dreamy voice deepens and calms as he portrays Wolf, a guide who anchors Moon."

Audible listeners on THE MIDNIGHT CHILDREN by Dan Gemeinhart:

"[...]André Santana is an incredible narrator, and he imbues each character with life.. My particular favorite portrayals were of the stoic Hunter, the gutsy Virginia and the cafe owner, Freddy."

"Excellent book and excellent narrator. Some narrators can get on my nerves, but Andre was perfect."

 


Audible listener on BLUE SKY TOMORROWS by L.J. Hachmeister:

"Narrator André Santana does a masterful job with a complex narrative that's an ever-changing circus of the thoughts, memories, dreams, emotions, out-loud voices, hallucinations, instincts, and sometimes violent actions and reactions of a ten-year-old kid forced to make choices most adults could never handle.. It may be YA, but it's dark and scary and a pretty wild ride."


Audible listeners on EVOCATUS by Burke Speed:

"So at first I hated the voice, it didn't match the character... give it a few chapters the voice is insanely perfect lol."

"André Santana captures the essence of Jamie so well that he pulls your attention into the story from the first beat. And from there, it just keeps getting better!"
