Andrew Hwu started out as a beginner guitarist for a church group but after the original drummer left, the pastor told him to hop on drums and play a simple beat. He did and was told he'd be a drummer from then on.
Andrew has been playing for 11 years and has managed to play simple pop songs to almost any Death Metal song to even complex songs from artists like Dream Theater and Tool. Andrew is a very versatile drummer with the ability to not only read music by sheet but also by ear.
With a simple yet complex drumming style that mixes hard rock with jazz and progressive drumming, Andrew Hwu is one of our finest and unorthodox drummers.
