Originally from New Rochelle, NY, Andrew Lipow began studying music formally during high school when he was introduced to the music of Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery from a friend. After graduating high school, Andrew enrolled at Vassar College as a Music Performance major in classical guitar. While in college, Andrew began forming his own groups in a multitude of genres. Upon seeing one of Andrew’s performances, Kate Taylor (sister of James) hired Andrew to tour during his breaks from college. In this context, Andrew was given the opportunity to perform alongside Carly Simon, Arlen Roth, Felicia Collins, Mark Pender and Levon Helm. Andrew has recorded with legendary jazz drummer, Ralph Peterson, Albert Rivera and the Curtis Brothers. Andrew now lives in the Netherlands and studies at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen and performs his original material with his band, Warpold Wine.
