For the past several decades, Andrew Belling has provided songs and underscore for many television shows and features. He’s worked with major stars like Frank Sinatra, Ann Marget, Burt Reynolds, Dinah Shore, Susan Anton, Lucie Arnaz, Martha Reeves, Wayland Flowers and Madam, and has played keyboards on albums with The Kingston Trio, Ricky Nelson, The Eagles and has released albums on Casablanca, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox and Columbia Records.

In 1977 20th Century Fox released “Wizards”, an animated film by Ralph Bakshi – for which Andrew provided all the music. The film has since become a cult classic and both the film and the score have amassed a large fan base.  Upon the 40th anniversary of the release, a record label in Portland released the score on vinyl and celebrated the occasion with a film screening to a sold-out house at the Hollywood Theatre.

Andrew has also conducted the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Jerusalem and Seattle Symphonies, and members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in his scores. He’s co-produced and co-directed a cable classic television series “Crisis Counselor”; music directed Disney International Children’s television series “Sing Me A Story”; together with DJ Casey Alva, arranged, conducted and produced the music for The Tiki Room in Tokyo Disneyland and is an Honorary Imagineer.

In addition, he has produced and recorded many audio books for the children, for Childs Play, England. His proudest work in this genre being an audiobook called "The Musical Life of Gustav Mole"-narrated by Patrick MacNee. He subsequently produced and recorded another book which was narrated by Diana Rigg, so he has truly worked with 2 of the original Avengers.

As a writer and singer, he released 2 albums of songs that he wrote for children’s books and Disney, Imagine That, Just Kidding and Sing Along with Me!.  He has enjoyed a long working history with the Sherman Brothers, in which he conceived and is developing a new Sherman Brothers musical bound for Broadway named “Merry-Go-Round The Musical” as well as recently conducting and playing 185 performances in 40 cities over 9 months as Wilbur Hatch, in the 2014/15 National Tour of the musical “I Love Lucy, Live On Stage”.
