Andrew Cantore
Current Project: Phosphene (Joined in 2012)

Andrew started taking his drumming career seriously in 2007 after he went to see Evanescence perform with their new “ fill-in drummer ” Will Hunt. Not too long after, Will became the primary drummer of Evanescence. He is also affiliated with other well-known national acts including Black Label Society, Eye Empire, Dark New Day, and Static-X to name a few.

Highly inspired by the skill, energy, and creativity of Will Hunt’s drumming style during that unforgettable performance, Andrew's eyes where suddenly opened to the new possibilities of a completely new advanced way of drumming.

Immediately following that concert, Andrew started researching other drummers that had the same kind of energy and power behind their drum kits. During this time, Brandon Saller (drummer for the band Atreyu / Hell or Highwater) had become another drummer at the top of Andrew’s list of influential idols. Brandon not only added his own unique style to drumming but he also added his heavenly clean vocals which are now a major part of Atreyu's signature sound.

Enlightened and driven, Andrew began brainstorming what direction and to what level of commitment he was going to take towards his own drumming style. Years later with his standards set to a much higher and more professional level, Andrew has dedicated nearly every day to continuously learning practicing, and studying percussion.

Recently Andrew had a chance to meet and take lessons with drummer Glen Sobel (current drummer for Alice Cooper and also affiliated with such acts as Sixx: A.M., Vasco Rossi, Elliott Yamin of American Idol, Beautiful Creatures, Uli Jon Roth and Johnny Depp). Andrew was astonished by the technicality of Glen’s drumming and teaching method. “Drumming has never been broken down, taught, and explained in the very clear and precise way Glen did.” Says Andrew. Glen was the first of Andrew’s drumming idols that he was able to meet and talk drums with. Due to Glen’s “down to earth” and intellectual personality, Andrew once again has raised the bar for himself and began adapting and implementing different/new drumming techniques. . .

Eager more than ever to learn and apply all of these new methods to his own drumming style, Andrew has found that his determination to progress in his drumming career has not only been beneficial to his drumming as a whole but also to the way he writes and preforms live.  Andrew’s philosophy on drumming is to continuously raise the bar for himself.  He states, “We are all on the same journey, there is no hierarchy. Where ever I am at in the music world, I can’t possibly be better then you or worse then you. I can only be later in the journey or earlier in the journey. We are all doing this for the same reason.”
