Widely educated and experienced in all areas pertaining to music, he has studied piano performance at Roosevelt University in Chicago and Indiana State University in Terre Haute.

Andy Jones is something of a "Jack of many trades." His background includes music and creative writing, and he has worked as a musician throughout the Evansville and Chicago areas, as a solo act and at one point in collaboration with Katie Watts as a member of her band, the Ideas. He has released two albums of original music and published a scholastic article on Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace from a failed stint in grad school. He has studied film at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and creative writing at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.
