Born in California, he was raised in Michigan, around the Detroit area.
His sound is basically death-metal with pop melodies. He feels that he shouldn't limit his taste in music and writes what he feels.
Began his classical piano lessons at age four. Unlike most, he never quit, but moved on to drumming in death-metal groups as a teen.
His first EPs were released on Bulb Records, home to such wonderfully obscure artists as Quintron, Ass Baboons of Venus and 25 Suaves.
As a one-man show, he played a couple of opening slots for Foo Fighters in the early 2000's.
When he finally formed a band, it was with three guitars, a bass and a drummer. One of the guitarists is Jimmy Coup, who played with thrash band Coup de Grace. The drummer, Donald "D.T." Tardy, was in the death-metal group Obituary.
Upon the release of his debut album, NME (a popular British music magazine) dubbed Andrew "The Saviour of Music."
Early shows featured no more than Andrew onstage with a CD player, keyboard, and microphone.
