Having started taking professional drum lessons at the age of 7, Andrew’s focus on music was clear from the start. The ability of being able to read and write out drum sheet notations, enabled him to quickly fit in with many styles of drumming at this early age.
Andrew moved into high school already known as a solid drummer and this is when his career path became clear. Having developed his drumming and reading skills in the concert band at the school, Andrew’s reputation grew within the school system and in the community. During these high school years, Andrew was approached by many musicians who wanted to collaborate with him, and he moved forward into the heavier style of playing which became his preferred style and focus at the time.
Having played with many successful bands through the years including Warmachine, Spin Dizzy, Mama Kin, Rehab Dolls and Reckon With One. Andrew re-focused his sights, and with his abilities and strengths, decided to concentrate on his career path, and moved back into the concert band experience with the “Columbus Concert Band”, and also into the heavier and more complicated side, with Prog-metal band “Reckon with One”. Andrew recently joined ( May 2014) Canadian Rock back "Kumonga" which again took advantage of his ability to play different styles and genres. Andrew is very excited to be in this new venture with Kumonga and is excited to play many more live shows and tour.
Andrew’s unique style and ability allow him to play in these two wide-spectrum styles and be successful in both.
