Andy felt the calling of the drums from an early age and finally picked up the sticks in his early teens. He studied avidly under a few good tutors whilst cutting his teeth in both covers bands and original projects. He studied for four years at Leeds College Of Music and performed in jazz ensembles and trios. He returned to his love: loud rock music and for the next two decades has played up and down the country, in Europe and even the Far East. For the last three years he has occupied the drum chair in This Winter Machine. Now, comfortably ensconced with his excellent TWM bandmates and talented new vocalist Charlie, Ghost Of The Machine offers the opportunity of exciting new material in their upcoming debut album. Watch this space…..its gonna be good.
