Andrew Berkeley Martin Birthday
Andrew Berkeley Martin was born today in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk England. He started formal training for acting and music in 1972.
Before embarking on his marriage and family therapy career, he studied theater and classical voice before fulfilling a long-held desire of his to make music. Yet his musical passion never left.
Early Life and Education
Andrew Martin was born in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk England in 1962 and began his musical journey by playing violin with the local Youth Orchestra. Additionally, he studied music theory and acting techniques at West Suffolk Music and Drama Centre, also located in Suffolk England.
Martin had long been helping individuals work through traumas, resolve deep-seated conflicts and uncover their true selves as a Marriage and Family Therapist. But on her 40th birthday she decided to put one long-dormant dream of hers into motion – recording music!
He worked as a touring musician with various bands such as Palaye Royal and Ashton Irwin, performing as a Rod Stewart tribute artist in Las Vegas. Martin released five solo albums prior to retiring.
Andrew is a dedicated and strategic attorney, dedicated to taking a comprehensive approach in serving his clients’ legal needs. He works closely with small businesses and large corporations alike, helping them avoid expensive litigation by brokering favorable agreements prior to disputes occurring. Andrew’s practice encompasses complex commercial and employment litigation cases.
Martin was raised in an environment filled with jazz music, drawing influence from vocal greats like Billie Holiday, Irene Kral and Sarah Vaughn – who became her idols as she went through difficult mid-teenage years. Music provided comfort when nothing else could.
Since 2008, he has been both dancing and accompanying for Post:ballet and Berkeley Ballet Theater. Over this period he has gained experience from some of the area’s most sought-after teachers, developing their physical expression while supporting people’s needs and interactions. This passion led him to becoming their current piano accompanist.
Achievement and Honors
Once she turned 40, Martin began taking seriously her dream of singing. She studied voice and theatre before enrolling in Jazzschool’s vocal mentorship program with Maye Cavallaro as well as receiving training at Berkeley’s California Jazz Conservatory – ultimately leading her down a long and winding path that produced Living Room as her debut album.
At the 2023 Academy Awards, she led an audience-wide song to honor co-star James Martin for An Irish Goodbye winning Best Live Action Short Film and director Ross White noted this as one of two most important moments that day.
Note: I have read online speculation suggesting that Sebastian, Remington and Emerson might not allow Andrew to become an official band member after Dan’s inappropriate actions with underage girls. But, it seems safe to say they still consider him part of their chosen family and would not expel him over such an incident.
