“Andrew is a true live performer with an exceptional voice, incredible songs, some serious live looping chops and limitless energy… not to mention a spatter of comic wit and story-telling ability that helps create a dynamic and interactive live show. He’s definitely an artist that embodies the term ‘live’.” – The Sound Cafe
