About Andrew W.K.
Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier, known by his stagename Andrew W.K. works as hard as he parties. He is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, producer, motivational speaker and served as the host of the television series "Destroy Build Destroy."
Considering his background (classical piano, college prep school where he studied jazz keyboard, and a father who is a well-known legal scholar), it's not hard to believe Andrew called his first public recording "Mr. Surprise." He would bounce around a number of bands in Michigan and became involved in a number of other projects before going solo.
It was 1989 when Andrew W.K. released "Room to Breathe," which was considered his first official album. The catch? The release was cassette-only and just 35 copies were made. Another tape went missing, and he had similar luck with a track for the soundtrack of "Poltergeist" when that went missing for over 10 years before ultimately resurfacing.
Despite the early 'bad luck,' Andrew's career took off. He also began performing as a self-help, new age motivational speaker in 2005. Two years later he started a series of one man shows, and in March of that year was featured on the front page of the Arts section of the The New York Times. He also developed a following from appearances at "My Little Pony" conventions, one of which was featured in Rolling Stone.
There are so many projects Andrew has been involved in that it would be impossible to list them all here. His latest initiative is a documentary film, "Party Safari," detailing his trip to a safari park.
