How do you describe an all-star woodwind pop, rock, jazz and classical musician who plays by his own rules?

“Perhaps the best choice is to admit that there’s no easy way to depict the overwhelming talent and potential of Australian, Andy Firth. Possessing an eloquent and explosive fluency on both saxophone and clarinet, his style ranges from blindingly quick, volatile technique, to a soulful, lyrical tone guaranteed to melt the average listener. Firth’s astounding ability, combined with a refreshingly simple philosphy of music has led him to a unique blend of clarinet, saxophone, jazz, classical, rock and pop – one which transcends traditional boundaries.”
Rico People and Products Magazine (USA)

“Once in a blue moon, along comes an artist whose talent, musicianship and expertise is awesome. Such a man is Andy Firth, whose reputation as a brilliant performer is Australia wide and acknowledged Internationally as well. He is sought after as a wonderful teacher, a lecturer of “good music” and a fine composer. I am priviledged to be associated with him and also call him a friend.” Maestro Tommy Tycho AM MBE

“I have never heard anything like this guy; he is a one in a million! His musicality and playing is totally unique! Andy Firth is, in my opinion, one of our greatest artists and musicians like him pass this way but once. I am thrilled to have met and heard him perform!”
Vincent J. Abato (Revered US reeds virtuso & teacher) 2006

“Andy Firth is the first clarinettist in 30 years or so, since Eddie Daniels, that I have really paid attention to…what he can do on the clarinet, I consider to be impossible – yes true! The thing is, Andy doesn’t know this…and I’m not gonna tell him.”
Buddy DeFranco (US Living Legend: Jazz Clarinet) 21st March 2008
