Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland and Labrador, Andrews grew up exposed to the island’s mélange of cultural influences – a mix of English, French, Irish, Scottish, Spanish and Portuguese.

After graduating from the Jazz Studies program at St. FXU with honours, Duane spent several years studying contemporary music composition at the Conservatoire International de Paris and at the Conservatoire National de Region in Marseille, France.
