In the '70s and '80s he was a hired gun for legendary Australian bands Madder Lake, Ayers Rock, Kevin Borich, Renee Geyer and Ian Moss to name but a few. Since 1998 Cowan has recorded seven CDs and filmed a live DVD at The Basement in Sydney and The Corner Hotel, Richmond, Victoria.

Andy Cowan is one of Australia's foremost performing songwriters. He possesses a voice that invites comparison with the likes of Tom Waites or Leonard Cohen, with the soul of Ray Charles. But these are superficial comparisons, Andy's virtuoso piano and keyboard playing contain both energy and melodic beauty. His songwriting and performing skills give him a strength and quality that define him as the complete artistic entity - the "King of the Keys".

Andy's musical career began in Melbourne, Australia, growing up in a household surrounded by music. Following classical piano studies he began exploring piano improvisation, and absorbing musical ideas from rock, soul, blues, jazz and folk artists, and developing his very distinctive signature style that has matured with time. His influences include Ray Charles, Chopin, Dr John, Pete Johnson, John Coltrane, Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Bob Dylan, and many more.

Andy received Blues Album of the Year 2000, Blues Performer of the Year 2001, Male Performer of the Year 2003 and was an ARIA nominee for his "10.30 Thursdays" CD. He was also awarded second place at the International Blues Convention in Memphis, Tennessee, USA in 2002. He has arranged and performed on movies soundtracks including the Australian cult classic "Stone" and has toured internationally and throughout Australia for more than four decades.
