Trust the American music stars to have pseudo names. Andrew Biersack has three. Born as Andrew Dennis Biersack on 26 December 1990, he is an American singer and pianist. His first pseudo name was ‘Andy Six’ that he later changed to ‘Andy Black’ and finally ‘Andy Biersack’.Born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Chris and Amy Biersack, Andy followed a different style of music. He had a deep interest in music and singing and always wanted to become a musician.
Along with a few friends, Andy formed his first band by the name ‘Biersack’ at the age of 14 years. This band played only one show. Subsequent, the friends revived the bad and christened it as Black Veil Brides in 2009. Their first album, ‘Knives and Pens’ followed soon thereafter. This album created a record of sorts with over 200 million views.
Emboldened by the initial success, they ventured into their first US tour. They named it as “On Leather Wings.” Their first album, ‘We Stitch These Wounds’ sold over 13000 copies in its first week of release. The band released three more albums but they could not recreate the magic of the first album.
In the meanwhile, Andy Biersack started playing solo songs under the moniker, Andy Black. He explained that these kinds of songs do not suit the band and hence the need to branch out on a solo venture. He introduced his first song, ‘They Don’t Need to Understand’ online. His first album, ‘The Shadow Side’ came out soon thereafter.
Andy shifted base to Los Angeles, California where he took up small roles in commercials and the odd television serial as well. He also starred in the Black Veil Brides full-length feature film, ‘Legion of the Black’.
He belongs to a religious family, though he does not consider himself as overtly religious. He is an injury prone person having suffered multiple injuries while performing on stage. One of his nasty falls was in Hollywood in 2011. He fell from a 15 ft pillar and injured his rib cage in the process. He is a carefree person smoking two packs of cigarettes every day. He drinks a lot as well and does not visualize himself living beyond 40 years of age.
He has dated many beautiful women in life, some of whom are Lexus Amanda, Layla Allman, Hana Merjos, and actor Scout Taylor. However, from 2011, he has gone steady with singer Juliet Simms.
Education: In his childhood, he had attended a Catholic elementary school in Cincinnati. He had a different way of dressing thereby making him the butt of jokes in school. However, he had support in the form of his teacher, Jamie Peters who has been a great influence on his career.
He attended the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts and completed his majors in drama and music. Naturally, his next destination has been Hollywood.
