In the summer of 2017, Andrew Butcher competed as a finalist on the ABC-TV music competition series “Boy Band”, earning a spot in the coveted Top 12 & receiving rave reviews from mentors Emma Bunton (The Spice Girls), Nick Carter (The Backstreet Boys), hip hop producer/singer/songwriter Timbaland, pop superstar Rita Ora & fans alike. The show’s vocal producer Tim Davis (who worked on 6 seasons of the hit Fox series “Glee”) declared Andrew “the strongest vocalist on the show.”
Andrew then went on to collaborate with some of Nashville’s top songwriters and producers, including the Emmy award winning Trey Bruce as well as hit songwriters Philip Douglas, David Banning, Josiah Prince, Chris Cron (member of hit Warner Bros. rock band Mêlée) and many others. His new music has also been featured in the online music video platform VEVO and he has even been interviewed in Ryan Seacrest Studios.
Andrew released his debut single “You Were There”, co-written by hit songwriter Greg Barnhill (who has composed hits for artists as diverse as Leona Lewis & Jessica Simpson to Tim McGraw & Martina McBride and even Don Henley of The Eagles) in November 2017.
As well as being a vocalist and proficient songwriter, Andrew plays guitar, piano & drums and counts among his musical influences artists such as John Mayer, The Zac Brown Band, Ed Sheeran and Journey's Steve Perry.
Andrew has his sights set on releasing his very first EP in early 2018.
