Biography

Andy Corwin is a singer/songwriter/comedian & raconteur who burst upon the folk music scene some time after the late pleistocene era.

He is is currently a member of the internationally renowned 60's folk trio, The Limeliters, with whom he tours throughout the U.S., as well as being a popular solo performer in music and comedy venues.

He was formerly the long haired, scraggly bass player of The Foremen, a folk music / comedy quartet best remembered for clever and literate political satire. The Foremen recorded two albums on the Warner/Reprise label in the mid-nineties and performed at the 1996 Democratic Party convention in Chicago (they also gate-crashed the Republican convention that same year -- but, that's another story.)

In recent years he has teamed with singer/songwriter (& renaissance man) Steve Goodie to form the duo "actual size".

Citing comic influences ranging from "Bob & Ray" to "Monty Python" to "The Warren Commision Report", Andy's songwriting has variously been described as bizarre, outrageous, boarder line-psychotic and chock full 'o vitamins and minerals. He was a winner of the 2005 New Folk Songwriting Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, Texas.

He is also an accomplished documentary film editor & director whose work is regularly seen on The History Channel, A & E, Discovery Networks, Animal Planet, The Food Network and HGTV, to name but a few.
