Summary: The bespectacled singer/songwriter for the underrated 80's band XTC. Though not often known for his vocal prowess, he has a chesty, rubbery voice that compliments the whimsical nature of his music very well, and can reach well into the upper 4th octave without losing his tone. He tends to shriek/use falsetto often which accounts for most of his 5th octave notes. He shares singing/songwriting duties with his musical partner Colin Moulding, who has a noticeably lighter timbre than Andy. Unfortunately, despite his singing/songwriting talents, XTC rarely performed live due to his stage fright, which may have hindered their success in the long run.

*Italics mark probable falsetto notes.
