Andrew DeNicola is a jazz/film composer, multi-instrumentalist, and educator based in New York City. Originally from Stamford CT, his musical journey began in 4th grade when he picked up the alto saxophone. By high school Andrew was writing music, playing gigs in CT and NYC, taking private lessons, and attending the magnets arts program in CT Regional Center for the Arts.
This all lead up to Andrew receiving a performance/composition scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music up in Boston. At Berklee Andrew spent 4 years honing his craft with veteran jazz musicians/composers that included Bill Pierce, George Garzone, Darren Barrett, Ed Tomassi, Greg Hopkins, Ayn Inserto, and more. Andrew graduated Berklee in 2017 with a degree in Jazz Composition.
Since then Andrew moved to NYC and released an album entitled “The Life of an Aquarius” featuring 5 original compositions, with 14 other musicians. He also just recently co-wrote with his brother Matthew DeNicola soundtrack music to a recent docu-series entitled “Rizqi Presents Blockchain”. His group “Andrew DeNicola @ the New Generation” has played at such venues around NYC as Silvana, Rockwood Music Hall, Williamsburg Music Center, and the Delancey.
Through composing, performing and teaching, Andrew gains a deeper understanding of the creative process and is able to use these mediums as a vehicle for his own self expression.
