Acoustic blues and originals covering a wide range of subject matter and emotions. Six of the 22 tracks are recorded with a trio composed of drums, upright bass and guitar/harmonica. The rest is just guitar, harmonica and vocals - and three instrumentals.

Born in 1955, Andy has been playing harmonica and singing professionally since 1977. He has recorded 18 albums (7 of them LP's) and two 45's. These recordings feature mostly Forest’s original songs. After living in Europe for ten years he returned to his home New Orleans in 1991 where he plays in clubs and frequently goes on tour in Europe and Canada.
Early influences were Sonny Terry, Big and Little Walter's, Sonny Boy Williamson, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Taj Mahal and Charlie Musselwhite - to name a few. He has played on stage with B.B. King, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnny Shines, Champion Jack DuPree, James Booker and many other greats of the Blues. He has written scores of songs, one novel which was published in 3 languages (Letter From Hell). He also paints “outside” art, mostly of blues and jazz singers. Andy’s cd “Real Stories: of love labor and other man-made catastrophes” for Slang Records won “Best Blues Album” of 2007 in the Best of The Beat Awards of New Orleans. Besides his own band Andy is now a member of The Washboard Chaz Blues Trio and plays solo showcasing his original songs. The 2010 CD “NOtown Story" was Nominated for "Best of The Beat" Award for 2010. The latest cd "Other Rooms" has rcieved rave reviews. Between 1985 and 1990 Andy acted in a dozen films for mostly Italian productions doing supporting and lead roles. In recent years he began making videos and short films professionally. So far Andy has done about 50 productions for local New Orleans Bands and a few trailers for booksBnimble (an online publishing company).
