Biography

Leicester, United Kingdom

There are at least two musicians under this name:

1) Andy Pratt (born Andrew S. Pratt in Boston, MA on January 25, 1947) an American rock music singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. In the 1970s, he made a number of experimental records that were appreciated by small audiences, and scored a commercial hit with “Avenging Annie”.

After words of praise from Rolling Stone magazine (“By reviving the dream of rock as an art and then re-inventing it, Pratt has forever changed the face of rock”), he tried a more commercial approach. Having converted to Christianity and settled in the Netherlands in 1987, he continued to make records and perform at big Christian pop music festivals.

Pratt returned to Boston after an absence of 13 years in 2004. The continually-prolific Pratt has been trying to make a comeback with a new band as well as solo appearances at regional festivals (such as South By Southwest in 2006). Despite his reputation as a one-hit wonder of the 1970s, Pratt has released twenty studio albums as of mid-2006.
