Andy is a Belfast-born Melbourne-based music artist and Head of Program at Bachelor of Songwriting and Music Production.
With twenty internationally-released albums, his ongoing creative practice means hands-on experience of the contemporary music industry and deep knowledge of the support networks surrounding music artists.
Andy has written songs with indie artists and rock stars, played venues from tiny clubs to Glastonbury, and been signed to independent and major labels. He brings this breadth of experience into the classroom and studios on campus, along with the positivity and enthusiasm he believes encourages the best outcomes in students' creative and academic work.
Andy completed a Master of Arts at the University of Cambridge before embarking upon his musical career and is currently engaged in PhD research at the University of Tasmania.
In addition to his musical releases, Andy has published two books of poetry and a novel.
