Biography

Andrew McCormack was born in Roehampton, United Kingdom in 1978. He began learning the piano at the age of thirteen and, at sixteen, commenced studies at Pimlico School, where he had lessons with Andrea Vicari, in their specialist music department. In 1996 Andrew received a scholarship to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he had both lessons, with Andrew Ball and Paul Roberts, as well as studying with Simon Purcell. He also began composition lessons with Matthew King whilst he was in his final year. Andrew graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree, in July 2000.

Andrew has performed with a number of distinguished jazz musicians, including Randy Brecker, Courtney Pine, Tony Remy, Orphy Robinson, Clifford Jarvis, Christine Tobin and Jean Toussaint. He has also had master classes with John Taylor, Jason Rebello and Kirk Lightsey. He was a member of “Tomorrows Warriors”, a project originally set up by the bassist Gary Crosby, who held a popular jam session every Sunday at the Jazz Cafe in Camden for three years; they now perform regularly around Britain.

In 2002 Andrew was a semi-finalist in the prestigious Martial Solal International Piano Competition held in Paris. He reached the Semi-Finals in the Perrier Young Jazz Musician of the Year Awards 1997 and was also a prize winner in the “Young Jazz Musician of the Year 98” televised on ITV.

When only 18 years old he joined the Denys Baptiste Quartet, whose debut CD “Be Where You Are” was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in 1999 and also won a MOBO award the same year.
