Oceanic Blues is the newest sub-genre of the Blues. The Oceania’s narrative tradition and the introduction of American Blues, Soul and Gospel since the 1960’s, has shaped this distinctive style. The roots of the sound are gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid Oceanic expression. This sound carries the mood and tones of Oceania expressed in rich, warm vocal tones.

Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventura on bass – two exceptional musicians. Each musician is outstanding in his or her own right, but the dynamic of the group is exhilarating to witness! The trio delivers a classic hard-hitting blues rock. On occasion, Andrews performs with a full band, which includes Shannon Stitt on keys and Rawhiti Turnbull on lead guitar.
