For over two decades, multi-instrumentalist Andrew Healey has been wowing audiences all over Australia and abroad with his smooth voice, rhythmic guitar style and eclectic selection of soulful original songs and huge repertoire of cover tracks. Now one of the most sort-after private and corporate entertainers in Australia, Andrew continues to travel the country regularly playing as a solo acoustic act, an amazing one-man-band, and fronting several duos and bands.
Andrew began singing and playing music at 11 years old, quickly graduating from school-based choirs, bands and stage shows to become of the most popular acts at many local venues and events around his native Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Having studied Music Performance and Audio Engineering, he moved to London in the beginning of 2005 and while there played several historic music venues across the UK, returning home in mid-2007 for family commitments.
Once back in Australia, Andrew continued to expand on both his originals catalogue and his private and corporate function experience, appearing at up to 6 public shows each week while averaging around 30 private events per year (primarily weddings). At this point he was playing in several bands as a vocalist, guitarist and bass player - cover acts D'Rhythmaires, Nick Latta Unplugged, The Soapbox Preachers, Helium, Benandi and original rock outfit Madam Anarchy.
Making the move to Melbourne in 2012 gave Andrew a chance to shift his priorities and while continuing to write, record and perform his original material he soon also became one of the cities busiest cover entertainers. Using live looping and digital effects to expand on his live show in both instances, he has developed an incredibly full "one-man-band" sound that uses no backing tracks or pre-recordings and must be seen to be believed. For many years he also fronted popular party band The Crawdaddys and while he has resigned from his full-time commitments with the band, they continue to play shows together from time to time.
Now focussed on solo exploits, along with his collaboration with guitar master Tom Baeppler in Melbourne Acoustic Duo, Andrew continues to live and love music in all its forms and play shows all over the country.
