From the soulfulness that he displays in his ballads, to the aggressive nature of the burn-out, Andrew Baham is determined to become a major force in the music industry. He began playing the trumpet at age 11, inspired by the discipline and appeal of the marching bands in New Orleans. From that time on, Andrew's love for music grew stronger . While in junior high, he attempted to arrange music for the band, earning respect and accolade from his fellow band members.

Around the same time a friend (fellow musician James Alsanders) talked Andrew into auditioning for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (commonly referred to as NOCCA), an arts high school in New Orleans that has a long list of acclaimed alumni. At NOCCA, Andrew received lessons from Ronald Benko (of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra), renowned trumpeter and educator Clyde Kerr, Jr., and Grammy Award Winner Nicholas Payton. In 1998, he received an endorsed trumpet from the Yamaha Corporation of America and became the first recipient of the Doc Cheatham Memorial Scholarship. 

Baham has performed with artists Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Grammy Nominee Los Hombres Calientes, Adonis Rose, and The Ellis Marsalis Quinet. He has production credits with The Stooges Brass Band's "It's About Time", Big Sam's Funky Nation' "King Of The Party", and others. 

He has recorded with alto saxophonist Darryl Reeves, The Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, the Soul Rebels Brass Band and the Lil' Stooges Brass Band. When he's not performing with funk powerhouse Big Sam's Funky Nation, Baham leads his own quintet performing music from his newest release as a leader, "And They Called It Love".
