Kelvin Andreas

was born and raised in Surabaya, Indonesia. At a very young age, he already showed his passion for music. He started learning drum set at age six and he also learned the piano. After one or two years he stopped taking piano lessons and decided drums was his instrument.

He first started playing drums in the Sunday school of his church, and he played even more after he entered high school. When he was in his 3rd year of junior high, he won his first band competition and continued to win some more until he graduated high school.

In 2018, he graduated from Berklee College of Music majoring in Jazz Composition. He has since been actively performing and teaching in the Boston area.
