James moved to Southern California with his family when he was 5. Music has been a big part of his life ever since he can remember.
He was influenced early on by R&B, the British Invasion, and 70’s rock and he especially remembers when Southern Rock first came onto the scene.  
Being fortunate enough to see Lynyrd Skynyrd live he remembers being influenced by Ronnie’s vocal style and how soulful and passionate his voice was with plenty of power.
Prior to joining Lyvyn Skynyrd Andrew had been singing lead vocals with a classic rock band for the previous several years.
