Andrew Christie started playing the piano from the age of six, following in the footsteps of his father, the jazz pianist and songwriter, John Christie. By the age of 18 Andy had taken on the role of musical director and accompanist for his sister, vocalist, Jane Christie. Together they appeared on numerous radio sessions for the BBC. At this time Andy was also writing arrangements for Jane's frequent sessions with the BBC Radio Orchestra at the Maida Vale Studios in London and the Midland Radio Orchestra under the baton of Norrie Paramor.


Since then, Andy has gone on to compose for and perform in a wide range of ventures from jazz and folk festivals, to theatrical productions and art installations.


His latest album, Difference and Repetition, is a work of original compositions that seamlessly weaves modern jazz elements into an ambient, cinematic underscore.
