Born in  Hollwyood but raised in Indiana , Andy eventually found his way to the San Fransisco punk scene in the mid 1970s where  he honed his skills as  both a songwriter and frontman,  front-person, or a person of  front . 

In early 1984, he was invited to join Wall of Voodoo, occupying the vacated  front-person position.  Touring the world and recording three albums with  the band, his composition Far Side of Crazy charted in foreign markets, going top ten in Australia.

In the early 1990's, his solo work featured the AID's related ballad, Tomorrow Wendy, covered by Concrete Blonde on their Bloodletting album.  Most notably , Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt performed Loving the Highway Man as a duet on their Western Wall album.

By the middle of the decade , he was writing , directing and performing  his  acclaimed musical,White Trash Wins Lotto, a Gilbert and Hooligan take on the Guns n' Roses story. Between 1995 and 2001, White Trash Wins Lotto successfully  ran at Largo and  The Roxy Theater.  It was also featured at The HBO Comedy Festival, New York's  PS 122  and on Conan O'Brien.

In 2004, Andy co-authored a novel The Psycho -Ex Game with Emmy Award winning writer Merrill Markoe for Random House.
 
After taking  time out to compose, Andy returned to the stage in 2015 presenting an autobiographical song cycle called A Thousand Gorgeous Lies at The Harold Williams Theatre at The Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Recently appearing at LA's Echoplex, Andy is hard at work composing new material . Among other projects, he is working on a 10-minute opera titled  The Abduction of the Statue of General Kosciusko by Three Junkies in the Park, based on a true story.
