Andrew Dennis “Andy” Biersack, formerly known as Andy Six, is an American singer and pianist. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. For his early education, Biersack attended a Catholic elementary school, which he has spoken of in many interviews. His preschool teacher was Jamie Peters, who had a big influence on his creativity. For high school, Biersack attended Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts, and majored in drama and vocal music. Two days after he turned 18, he left school before graduating to move to Los Angeles in hopes of furthering his potential career.
He is the founder and lead vocalist for the American rock band Black Veil Brides, and is its only remaining original member. In May 2014, he started a solo music project under the moniker Andy Black and released the album The Shadow Side in 2016. At age 14, Andy Biersack and a few of his friends formed their first band, called “Biersack” (although they only played one show). This project eventually grew into what would later be known as Black Veil Brides.
After his move to Los Angeles, California, he took up acting for a short time. He had a small part in the AT&T commercial “Confetti”, as well as a 30-second spot in the Montana Meth commercial “Jumped”. Andy guest stars in the Funny or Die web series Average Joe on YouTube. He also starred in the Black Veil Brides full-length feature film, Legion of the Black, which was released on January 6, 2013, to support the band’s third album.
On April 16, 2016, Biersack married former frontwoman of Automatic Loveletter and runner-up of The Voice season 2, Juliet Simms.
