In 1981 after a chance meeting, Andy, at the time a drummer, joined Modern Romance, a band with (unknown to him) two flop singles under their belts! Within 8 weeks of joining them Modern Romance had charted with Everybody Salsa, their first hit single. Andy toured the UK, Europe and the Far East with Modern Romance, picking up Gold Discs for tracks and albums released in several territories including Japan, Venezuela and of course, the UK.
Andy left the band in 1985 to pursue other music ventures, but following the success of the first Shrek movie which featured Best Years of Our Lives on the soundtrack, Andy felt it was time to unleash the unique Modern Romance sound to a new generation. He relaunched the band in 2001, this time as lead singer, and the band have since toured extensively all over the world.
