b. 1938, Romford, Essex, England. Originally lead singer in the early 60s band Chris Ravel And The Ravers, Andrews found greater success as a songwriter. Signed by manager Eve Taylor, he composed hits for her artists Adam Faith (‘The First Time’, ‘We Are In Love’, ‘If He Tells Me’, ‘I Love Being In Love With You’, ‘Stop Feeling Sorry For Yourself’, ‘Someone’s Taken Maria Away’) and Sandie Shaw (‘Girl Don’t Come’, ‘Long Live Love’ and ‘Message Understood’). He achieved UK chart success in his own right during 1965-66 with two catchy, upbeat numbers, ‘Yesterday Man’ (number 3) and ‘To Whom It Concerns’ (number 13). Although he occasionally recorded additional solo singles, no further hits were forthcoming. He subsequently continued his career as a songwriter.
