Ty Andrews knew at a very young age that music and art fed his soul as he played alongside his toy drumming panda in a small church founded by his father Rev. Eli Andrews, Sr. in Panama City, Florida. Coloring books were boring, but the inside covers had a cleaner, more inviting canvas for sketching and doodling. His artwork was first published in Highlights for Children Magazine at age 11. At the first opportunity to join the middle school band, Ty learned to play tenor saxophone and later joined Steel Breeze steel drum band as a drummer. He then became a flashy, crowd-pleasing drum major at A. Crawford Mosley high school following his training by the world-class Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corp.
After graduating from Florida A&M University with a Bachelors in Graphic Design, Ty lived a corporate life as a graphic designer and creative director. Ty stepped back into music in 2009 performing with a vocalist group named "Prism" and never looked back. He developed a wide range tenor voice and began to explore a diverse repertoire of music genres on his own.
He performed internationally at special events, concerts and conferences with live bands, music teams, national youth/teen programs as well as opened for best-selling author/speakers Jean Houston, Les Brown and Iyanla Vanzant.
Ty came to the forefront of the stage with his debut song and self-produced EP, “Letting Go”, a Hindi-inspired anthem about freedom. His song, “Space" topped the NumberOne Music (N1M) charts at #1 for Electro Lounge. Stylistically, he has established himself with a polished fusion of neo-soul, electronic and dance music flair crafted to touch hearts and open minds.
Outside of the recording studio, Ty serves as Co-Director for Sound of Light Choir, an affiliate group of Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta (SLCA). Ty is also an actor, mainly casted as an extra on major network TV shows such as Good Girls, The Resident, Star and Deputy.
After over 20 years blazing through the graphic arts and corporate advertising industry, Ty started Ty Andrews Productions to help creative entrepreneurs, entertainers and companies who are overwhelmed with work spend more time creating as their true identity. He has provided creative direction and support for the Florida Lottery, BBDO, Kaleidoscope Child Foundation, AmeriCorps, Universal Studios, Georgia Lottery, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Atlanta Braves, Target, and CVS stores.
Ty is the co-founder of Conscious Kids Network (CKN), a publishing service empowering children and their supporters through print, media, and entertainment. Together with co-founder Jean Bell, Ty and Jean have published 3 children's books–Brookie's Adventure, Brookie's Adventure Coloring Book, and Splash: I Love Being a Raindrop.
Ty is dedicated to paving a future that allows for growth, innovation, and excellence to lead.
He is a graduate of Atlanta Institute of Music and Media Recording Arts & Technology program which has helped him step into a broader field of music production. Ty started "Interactive Drumming", an inclusive, percussion-fueled music program for children and adults to build connection, enhance creativity and promote overall well-being.
