Upon being introduced to Jazz in 2011, Andrew was inspired to study Jazz and other music from the Black-American tradition. He has participated in Essentially Ellington Jazz Festival and Competition, toured internationally with Carnegie Hall’s NYO Jazz backing vocalist Dianne Reeves, and been a member of the JAS academy Big Band directed by Christian McBride. Andrew has performed and worked with such people as Wycliffe Gordon, Sean Jones and Jiggs Whigham amongst others.
