Andrew grew up in the jazz and funk scene in San Francisco, where he developed an affinity for instrumental music like STS9, Tea Leaf Green and Medeski Martin and Wood. In his early twenties he bought a one way ticket to Zimbabwe without much of a plan or idea as to what came next. While traveling around the world, he studied and learned all sorts of percussion from a Kudu antler horn in Cape Town, ZA to the Tabla in Varanasi, India. Whether hiking to Everest Base Camp, tracking lions in Kenya, sailing to Madagascar or surfing in Indonesia, he was always amazed at how well artists like The Album Leaf, Tycho and Aphex Twin could enhance these experiences. His passion for traveling and the great outdoors gave Andrew’s musical direction a heavy influence on nature.
