He is known for his up-beat renditions of classic songs (B.B. King, The Blues Brothers, The Commitments, Motown, Stevie Wonder...). Andre has been recognized in the blues community for his 5 studio albums gaining publicity and exposure through radio, blues magazines, and blues awards throughout the world. He has played before greats such as Jimmie Vaughan, Robben Ford, Steve Strongman, Colin James & Steven Page.
With the completion of his 5th studio album Bad Scene released on August 2013, it is clear to hear that Andre has stayed true to his influences.

Along with 10 new originals, Andre also pays tribute to one of the greats with his version of Jimi Hendrix's "Remember". This album was nominated for Blues Album of the Year for the Hamilton Music Awards and Jesse O'Brien Won the Award for Keyboard Player of the Year for his work on it.
