Andrew Higley

Andrew HigleyAndrew Higley studied classical piano before being introduced to the blues by a childhood friend. In his early teens, he began playing clubs. While still in high school, he spent many weekends playing and recording with various local musicians—often with Jeff Simon and Bill Blough of the Destroyers, the rhythm section behind George Thorogood.

Andrew moved to Cincinnati in 1997 to attend the University of Cincinnati. He played and recorded with various local bands beforemoving to Nashville in 2009.

While first and foremost a piano player, Andrew also plays the organ, French horn, and musical saw. He has co-written and arranged strings for recording artists, and he has toured throughout the US, Europe, Australia, Japan, and South Korea. He has performed and/or recorded with Ben Folds, Brendan Benson, The Greenhornes, The Jim Jones Review, Bo Diddley, and Cory Chisel.

Andrew’s teaching philosophy focuses on the practical application of blues piano with a strong foundation in technique, theory, and ear training—skills he’s found invaluable in writing, arranging, and session work. For the past 16 years, he has taught private lessons in piano and French horn.
