Andy Suzuki and The Method Biography
NYC-based band, Andy Suzuki & The Method is fronted by the songwriting duo of Andy Suzuki, a half-Japanese half-Jewish vocalist/guitarist/pianist from Maryland, and Kozza Babumba, the grandson of Grammy Award-winning Nigerian percussionist, Babatunde Olatunji.
Andy Suzuki has been singing since before he could walk. Born to an American/Jewish mother and a Japanese father, he was exposed to a world of sounds from an early age. He spent much of his childhood singing in different languages. This cultural diversity and growing up in the melting pot of Washington, DC gave him the unique perspective from which he writes and plays music. When he was a freshman in high school, his father was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. As he went through high school and started at Brown University, he turned to music as an outlet.
At Brown, he met his writing partner and hand percussionist, Kozza Babumba, the grandson of Grammy Award-winning Nigerian percussionist Babatunde Olatunji. Andy Suzuki & The Method was born. With the release of his album Born out of Mischief Andy's career and fan base have grown tremendously. In the past two years, Andy Suzuki & The Method has toured with Ringo Starr, Joshua Radin, and Marc Broussard, as well as participated in many notable festivals and events across the country. He has played SXSW, Voodoo Fest, and most recently gave a TED talk at the CIA headquarters. He has also completed multiple headlining tours in Asia. Andy is currently writing for his next album while he continues to tour in support of Born Out of Mischief.
