Who is Andrew Strong?

Andrew Strong is an Irish singer and the son of Irish musician and singing coach Robert Strong. He grew up in Omagh, Co Tyrone, and Naas, Co Kildare. He starred as Deco Cuffe in the 1991 cult film The Commitments based on the book by Roddy Doyle, having been cast at only 16 years of age with a voice sounding much older. In 1991 he was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Since then, Strong has released a number of albums, including a platinum disc, and toured with artists including The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Prince, Lenny Kravitz and Bryan Adams.

Strong does not tour with the official tribute act to the Commitments, although he did perform with the original cast for the 20th anniversary concert in the O2 in Dublin in March 2011.

Strong's infrequent live performances have recently occurred mainly in the United States.
