Also Known As
- Kid Beyond
- Andrew Chaiken
Andrew Chaikin made his name as a singer, songwriter, and producer with a cappella pioneers The House Jacks (signed to Warner Bros. in the mid-90's), and is considered one of the world's foremost vocal percussionists. His beats have funkified albums by the Bobs, the Nylons, and the Persuasions, and caused SF Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll to devote an entire column to Andrew's "lips of pure gold."
As a voice actor and singer, he can be heard on many national TV and radio commercials, cartoons, and video games. These days he performs live with funk-folk phenom Austin Willacy, the techno-tribal collective Mixtape From Mars, and other Bay Area acts. Andrew is a faculty member of the Jazzschool in Berkeley, CA. He lives in San Francisco.
