Andrew, singer/songwriter Xyra and guitarist/music director Mark Jeffrey Campayno are working up material as a trio. They have toyed with the idea of reviving the name Verborgen, as the music will be more akin to the genre Andrew and Xyra developed with the Verborgen lineup.
Born south of London, England, 8 January, Andrew voiced a keen interest in music at an early age. At age 6, he began classical piano studies at The Watford School of Music with concert pianist, Julianne Skerry.
After moving from England to the U.S., at age 16, Andrew gravitated more toward Led Zeppelin and other hard rock groups, later contributing to several music projects that mostly showcased his talents on piano. Additionally, he composed, recorded and produced an experimental orchestral work called "Cerebral Vortex ~ Cerebral Cafe", on which he performed all of the instruments.
While studying classical piano at the Levine School Music with virtuoso Russian pianist, Anna Balakerskaia, Andrew met and began classical guitar lessons with master guitarist, Eric S. Ulreich. Andrew presently studies advanced classical piano with Eric's wife, Dr. Laurie Hudicek. He and Laurie have performed classical recitals, sometimes with Eric joining the roster on classical or electric guitar.
Besides his classical piano ventures, Andrew contributes electric bass guitar to a recent Indie music project, Flight of Odin, with his wife, vocalist-songwriter, Angel Xyra H-Cann. Other bands Andrew has recorded and performed with are Mystic Angels, The Xyra Band, and Verborgen.
Notable live performances include The Philadelphia Music Conference, Blues Alley, The State Theater, WRNR FM live, and the 9:30 Club.
