This is what Andrew has to say about his debut album For His Glory,

“This is an old project which I kept unfinished from 2014. God took me into a very thorough spiritual discipline for years. He broke me and crushed me and brought me to the point of zero in every aspects of my life to show me the truth about our sojourn existence in this world. These are the songs that I wrote during and after the ordeal that I had been through.

This Album is purely for God’s glory and I really hope God will speak and touch people in his ways thru these songs.”
