Andy Wells is originally from Nottingham, England, but from 2005 he has called Bergen, on the west coast of Norway, his home.
Originally a drummer from the age of 7, Andy learned piano at the age of 13 upon the advice of his drum tutor in order for him to be able to play timpani, xylophone and other keyboard orientated percussion instruments.
It was around the age of 15 that Andy discovered his talent for song writing and composing and by the age of 20 he sold his drums and purchased his first electric piano - a 54 note Fender Rhodes. He has not looked back since.
His career really started when he joined the 1960's band Freddie & The Dreamers as keyboard player and back up vocalist. In 1994, after 3 years of touring up and down the country, he left to pursue a solo career as a professional piano entertainer.
His first engagement was aboard a Danish ferry.
Since then, Andy has been in steady employment as piano entertainer, playing in bars and hotels all over Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Germany. He has also played aboard nearly all the ships in the ferry lines of Color Line (Norway) Fjord Line (Norway) and DFDS Seaways (Denmark). Andy played on 2 Luxury cruises with Norwegian Cruise Lines in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
More recently Andy played his first ever gig in Bratislava, Slovakia at the Kempinski River Park Hotel.
