Andrew Andraos was born in Beirut, Lebanon on October 6, 1997. At age 19, Andrew is already recognized as a multi-talented artist, well-versed in singing, composition, arranging, piano, and specializing in operatic pop. Andrew grew up alongside his mother, younger sister, and father, who plays the Oud, a traditional Middle-Eastern instrument. It is obvious in listening to Andraos that the fruit didn’t fall far from the tree. At the mere age of six, he began taking piano lessons. Within a year’s time, he was playing piano at the Saint Michael Church in Nabay, Mount-Lebanon.
This was only the beginning for the naturally gifted Andraos, who commenced solfège and music theory courses at the young age of eight. He moved on to harmony and orchestration by the age of twelve, uniformly excelling in his lessons. His abilities as an operatic singer and composer are evident in the more than one hundred and fifty tunes he has created in his less than two decades of life.
Andrew holds multiple certificates in Audio Production, Film Scoring and Oriental Music Production. Additional accolades include an honorary certificate from his school "Saint Coeurs - Ain Najm" for musical creativity; a trophy from the International Catholic Union of the Press (UCIP) for his creativity in playing the piano, composing music and singing; and another trophy from his school "Saint Coeurs - Ain Najm" for outstanding musical performance.
In 2014, Andrew undertook the "Five Week Summer Program” at the Berklee College of Music, where he successfully achieved a certificate of completion. Andrew is now attending Berklee, majoring in Contemporary Writing and Production and consistently placing on the dean's list. The amount of music and success this artist has achieved in such a short span of time is extraordinary. His winning combination of perseverance, drive and innate abilities are hard to deny.
With so much talent, there is little doubt that this amazing young artist will go on to only bigger and better things. You can keep up with all of his latest news by following him on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for his latest news as it comes about.
