As a child, Andrew sang and played all the instruments he could get his hands on. Saxophone, piano, keyboards, percussion instruments and guitars all were available to the artist at an early age. By high school, Andrew was participating in rock and jazz bands while polishing his techniques and earning awards for his outstanding saxophone performances. In 1990 the unique creative direction of Andrew's musical talents truly began blossoming after forming a band known as Mean Majesty, during those crazy college years at Pratt Institute School of Art and Design. The progressive rock influence Andrew had grown up with blended with the folk-rock influences of two additional members and fellow art students. This trio consisted of Andrew’s vocals, keyboards and sax leads along with acoustical guitars and unique string instruments, creating a distinct sound. Mean Majesty, with its newfound following of loyal fans, began performing at parties, events, local venues and clubs in Brooklyn and Manhattan between 1990 and '91. After enjoying a taste of modest fame and learning from an intense year of live performances, the members of the band soon graduated and went their separate ways.

Andrew graduated with a degree in fine arts, a minor in film, and an intense craving for more experiences as a performer. He continued his musical career, solo or ensemble with several local bands. Soon, Andrew relocated to Florida seeking opportunities as an artist, actor and musician. It wasn’t long before forming a new band with a more direct rock and roll sound and a more professional attitude. The newly formed trio; Arcane Substance, played local scenes in South Florida. A solid musical relationship formed over time with two other members of the band and kept things going for several more years. The combined professionalism and creativity developed a rich collection of musical archives and experiences between 1992 and 2000. Andrew polished his expertise as lead vocalist, saxophone soloist, keyboardist, and percussionist. With a bass and a lead guitarist at his side, Andrew hit the Florida scene with a new progressive rock sound, influenced by progressive rock artists like Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues and Supertramp. That sound was becoming more sophisticated and dynamic than ever before, closer to what Andrew had always envisioned. Andrew decided on a new name that would capture this dynamic and expressive musical experience he wanted to share with his fans. Thus the vision for Emotive was born, and before moving on to Arizona, Emotive enjoyed moments of modest fame on local Florida radio stations, in the bars, clubs and beaches.

In April of 2001, Andrew made a bold move to Arizona in a Chevy van packed full of all his musical equipment, artwork, personal belongings, and a cat . The relocation brought the progressive rock sound of Emotive to the South West, where Andrew has single handedly recorded and produced Emotive’s first CD release, with all new material, available now for radio and internet broadcasts and new intense live performances. Emotive records and produces all material independently at ATB Productions Studio, in Arizona. ATB Productions represents the combined talents of Andrew Thomas Bearce as an artist, actor and musician. The scope of Andrew’s talents in art and acting has a dramatic influence on the music and the performances, live or in the studio.
