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, Billy Joel 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. A deep love of Tori Amos and Rufus Wainwright as well as the emotional struggle of coming out at the age of 17 inspired Andrew to start writing his own songs. 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 Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco. 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.
