BIO

Born and raised in Long Island, Andrew took interest in music at an early age. He attended the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, where he studied double bass with Metropolitan Opera members Jeremy McCoy and Daniel Krekeler. Upon graduation, he received the Gabriel Fontrier award in composition for his Duo for Violin and Contrabass in G minor.

Andrew performs in New York City as a multi-instrumentalist. He made his Broadway debut in Waitress playing cello and guitar with the on-stage band. Andrew often serves as music director for shows, including the cabaret comedy show On the Spot, which runs weekly at the Broadway Comedy Club. Outside of theater, Andrew performs private events throughout the Tri-State area with bands and as a soloist. He is the bandleader, frontman and bassist of the band Sick Sticks.

From his home studio, Andrew handles all stages of production from concept to final product. Most notably, he wrote, recorded, edited and (aside from a few guests) performed the entire Sick Sticks debut album The Secret to Eternal Life. Andrew has contributed orchestrations and arrangements to productions, often times providing full recordings of the written work. As a session musician, you can find Andrew's performances and arrangements on a number of albums and soundtracks.

Andrew lives in Queens. He likes bicycles, tortoises and old horror movies.
