Andrew is a singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist based out of San Francisco, CA. Originally from San Diego, Andrew has been living and performing around the Bay Area since 1998. Inspired by the music of Elton John, Tori Amos, Stevie Wonder and Rufus Wainwright, Andrew puts a piano-first spin on modern-day "blue-eyed soul."
Andrew discovered piano at the age of 7 and singing at 13. After years of performing in recitals with his sister, Andrew got involved with musical theater in high school. An obsession with Tori Amos and the emotional struggle of being a young closeted gay teenager inspired Andrew to start writing his own songs at the age of 15. In college, Andrew immersed himself in the world of music direction and a capella - having spent his time at UC Berkeley as a member of the national-championship-winning UC Men's Octet, and of BareStage - a student-run, student-directed theater company - where he served as actor, musical director and songwriter for various productions.
It wasn't until after college that Andrew found his voice as a solo artist - evolving his musical style and songwriting voice by performing original music at open mics throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Andrew has been headlining his own shows since 2006 - including regular shows at Martuni's Piano Bar in San Francisco.
Andrew currently lives in San Francisco's Mission District with his husband, Chris. His music can be purchased on iTunes or streamed through Spotify, Pandora, etc.
