About Andre

My Bio

Perhaps I should have focused solely on music (my passion) from the start. I did after all take classical piano lessons from age 5 until I fell off a bicycle and broke my elbow when I was 13 years old. However, I ended up building a successful career in Accounting and Finance over 30 years with Deloitte and Touche while managing to keeping one foot in the musical arena. Over the years, in my spare time, I managed to grab a few opportunities to write and produce music for companies that I worked for (never got paid for it though – my bad!) I also composed some songs for myself and others, some of which I had arranged and recorded in studios, but it was a hobby, and so I never actually attempted to have them published. (Also this was pre-internet and so easy self-publishing was not an option).

Having retired from my “day job” in 2015, I was finally able to focus on my inherent passion for music.

The few songs I recorded and sung myself over the years are included on this website, but please be aware that I am not presenting these to promote myself as a singer or performer. 

I have now embraced the fact that that at the core, I have always desired to be a composer, lyricist and playwright. Fortunately, I have always had a close working relationship with Tony Drake at Lightway Music Studios, who has collaborated on most of my songs with arrangements and music production.

My first major project was to finally complete a musical which I started scripting about 25 years ago:  “Ascension the Musical: The Final 40 Days” is intended to be a sequel to Jesus Christ Superstar. The concept album has been released on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and most other streaming networks.

Now I am focused on writing contemporary commercial music for others.

To reiterate:  I would love to write music for you, collaborate with you and/ or have you cover my songs..
