About the Artist

While he may be mostly known for singing about partying and his hard rocking anthems, Andrew W.K. is certainly no slouch as a musician. He has been playing piano since he was four years old and after one listen to his music it will be clear that there are a lot of intricate parts going on in the songs. He began learning classical piano at the age of four and by the age of fourteen had transferred to an alternative high school where he studied jazz piano. He played in several local bands in Michigan including The Beast People, Lab Lobotomy, the Malt Lickers, Sucking Coeds, Isis and Werewolves, and Ancient Art of Boar. By 1998, Andrew had moved to New Yorkand all of those bands dissolved as he embarked on a solo career.


Breakthrough

In 2001, Andrew W.K. released his debut album, I Get Wet and the lead single Party Hard immediately announced the arrival of a new hard rocking party icon. The album featured a picture of Andrew W.K. bleeding from the nose on the cover and became one of the most well known album covers of the decade. Part Hard was an instant hit and was featured on EA Sports' Madden 2003 video game as well as on a Girls GOne Wild CD, while other tracks from the album like It's Time to Party, Fun Night, and She is Beautiful were featured in commercials, video games,and feature films like Old School, Freaky Friday, and Jackass: The Movie. Andrew W.K. was picked to perform on the Ozzfest tour and it was clear a new rock icon had emerged. He has since released four other studio albums and continues to tour and give lovers of rock and roll all over the world a reason to party.

Trivia

In 2004, a man going by the name Steev Mike hacked into Andrew W.K.'s website claiming that he helped create the Andrew W.K. persona as well as a lot of the music and was angry about not being part of W.K.'s third album. Messages began appearing on the site that insulted visitors as well as tried to besmirch Andrew W.K.'s reputation. Andrew W.K. went on to say he had previously used the name Steev Mike and that Steev Mike was a group of people credited as a producer on I Get Wet. Andrew W.K. continues to insist that his persona is real but that the whole Steev Mike controversy could lead to a truth more disturbing than people might expect and he cannot reveal the names of those involved.
