Delighted young listeners hang on the edge of their seats, singing with Andrew’s action-packed call and repeat adventures, while erupting in googles of giggles.

He has won two Parent’s Choice Recommended Awards (Too Tall 2010 and GROW 2012) plus a Canadian Folk Music Award for Children’s Album of the Year in 2010. Andrew cut his teeth singing, songwriting, playing jug and washtub bass with Toronto band, Jughead. In 2004, he released Alligator Tracks for the younger crowd and never looked back. His album GROW is nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for Children’s Album of the Year!
