What would losing loved ones in differing circumstances plus losing your vision in just a short few years do to a person? The answer may vary, but for Andrew Farstar, these personal tragedies have been his driving force to pursue a career in music.
“It was like a slap on my face, reminding me how short life is…” says Andrew who lost his brother in law and a lady friend (both from cancer) in late 2015.

Up to now Andrew has thousands of Youtube views on his music videos, thousands of airplays on radio stations in Europe and North America, and rave reviews from several prominent blogs & media.
Apart from composing and writing his songs, Andrew also loves producing cover songs that he turns into his own. Overall, his music still gravitates towards the Adult Contemporary side as a blend of Michael Buble and Air Supply.
Born and grown up in Asia to a father who used to play violin as a hobby, influences his love for music. Though later on he was involved a lot with church music, his passion for mainstream music is alive and well.
