Andi Hopgood

Andi has always been surrounded by diverse selection of music. Her father being a musician and mother a dancer exposed her to all kinds of music form an early age. Jazz quickly became a favourite to listen to, but didn't become a dominating factor until much later in life. Andi did a music degree at the Colchester institute with studies of classical saxophone and cello, but for fun played in the Jazz orchestra and went to the Jazz Singers group. The directors of these ensembles advised her to take a new direction and swap studies to Jazz voice and saxophone, so she began to study with Malcom Miles and Trudy Kerr. With changed studies and a new jazz direction Andi graduated in 2002. In 2003 Andi made her first recording “ I could be so happy” with the help of an established trio Graham Harvey-Piano, Matt Miles
