Andy cut his teeth as a member of the Swamp Cats in Baton Rouge, LA.  As the house guitarist at Tabby's Blues Box in Baton Rouge Andy opened each show by singing a few songs then continued on to play in the backing band for many top Louisiana Blues & Zydeco guest artists. After "The Box" closed, Andy worked with such Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame members as Oscar Davis and Slim Harpo's guitarist, James Johnson. 

Andy struck out on his own in 2006 with a CD of original blues songs, Goin' to the Racetrack, which still receives international radio airplay. In 2008, Andy was a guest artist on Larry Garner's Dixie Frog Records release, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow. 

After relocating to High Point, NC, in 2010, Andy has performed at many Piedmont area festivals including Greensboro's 25th Anniversary Carolina Blues Festival. His second CD, Down by the River, released in 2011 features Andy alone and acoustic.  

"His blend of  "swamp pop" tunes - that earthy musical spectrum of ragtime, jazz, blues, country and even Hawaiian sounds - rival those of legendary blues singers John Lee Hooker and Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter, two men who helped shape the history of American blues." - Andrea Brill, Relish Winston-Salem Journal
