Andy goes by many titles: Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Husband, Daddy, Speaker, and Friend, however, it’s his title as “Child of the most High God” that motivates Andy to fuse all these together and dedicate his life to one of spreading the Gospel through song and testimony.
Andy’s love for music first began to sprout at the tender age of 5, when he’d sing harmonies in the back of the family car, whilst listening to reruns of ‘Grandma’s Feather Bed’. By age 8, his enthusiasm grew for all things music, as he endeavoured to teach himself guitar. His musical journey had just begun, but he was yet to embark on his walk with the Lord.
Growing up in a Christian family, having to go to church every Sunday morning, and attending an all-boys Christian school, did not automatically make Andy James Court, a Christian. Andy spent most of his early years knowing of God, but not KNOWING God.
In his early 20s, Andy almost lost his life whilst out surfing. He was slammed mercilessly by a massive wave, that not only knocked the air right out of him, but also proceeded to repeatedly suck him underwater, on the “washing machine” ride of his life. In a battle to break to the surface and take a breath, Andy recalls inwardly crying out to God and making a promise, that should he be delivered from the fury of this unrelenting wave, he would dedicate his life to serving God.
An overwhelming burst of fresh air eventually filled Andy’s aching lungs, as he lunged to the surface.
It would, however, take quite a number of years for Andy to recall this promise.
A supernatural encounter with the Living God, took this Perth boy’s life through a complete and radical change, from one of drugs and alcohol, exploring New Age beliefs, and playing in rock bands, to a life dedicated to spreading the message of the Gospel through music. Andy regretted the fact that he’d wasted so many valuable years chasing after worldly things with no eternal value. It wasn’t until he discovered the abundance of God’s Grace, that regret quickly transformed into a hope for the future, and a drive to share his experience with others. “ There were so many times my life could have ended abruptly, from drugs, motocross, car accidents, drowning, and the list goes on, but God had something else in store for me. He now uses my testimony to connect with others who are where I had been. He truly is a God of second chances.”
Three Multi-award winning Gospel albums later, Andy’s passion to tell the world about Jesus continues to burn brighter, as he sings about his journey with Christ during struggles, triumphs, heartache and joy. His musical style blends Contemporary Christian Pop, Black Gospel, Sounds of Africa and Inspirational Worship.
Andy’s ability to connect with audiences on an open and intimate level, his approachable and humorous character, and his message, that flows straight from the heart, help build a bond between him and those who attend his concerts.
Andy has taken his music to churches, schools, prisons, stadiums and festivals, and his concerts and performances have been warmly embraced, touching the lives of thousands.
Andy is also an active partner of Compassion Australia, journeying with them in the work that they do in releasing children from poverty. With a number of sponsor children of their own, Andy and his wife Sharon regularly encourage people to sponsor a child and make a difference.
