Andrew De Silva was the well-deserved winner of Australia's Got Talent in 2012. His performance career started professionally as front man and primary song-writer for Melbourne R&B group CDB at the age of 19. As part of CDB, Andrew De Silva received an ARIA for highest selling single in '96 (Let’s Groove went Platinum), while the subsequent album Glide With Me achieved Gold Sales.

He was a member of the band CBD from 1991 to 1997, when he left to undergo treatment for cancer.  Today, De Silva looks upon his time with CDB fondly but with an eye to the future, his current sound is an updated version of the pop R&B that defined him during the nineties and is a sonically mature offering that couples honest song writing with genuinely soulful delivery.

Never forgetting the era that defined him as a commercial artist, Andrew De Silva draws influence from the nineties musings of Lenny Kravitz, Terrence Trent Darby and Prince. While maintaining an understanding of how to make music accessible to a broad range of listeners, his lyrics are often conscious, message driven and with the increasingly rare capacity to write, arrange, mix and compose every aspect of the final audio product, listening to De Silva’s music is a moment of truth.

As a songwriter, live performer and a session musician, Andrew De Silva is constantly busy. In the hard to penetrate local music industry De Silva’s vocal diversity is an in-demand asset that has seen him work with some of the biggest names of the Aus music landscape, across various genres and projects. This, along with his command of the guitar and bass guitar has served to cement De Silva’s reputation as an all-round musician.
