Early life and education

Wyatt grew up on Perry Street in Manhattan, New York City,[6] in the 1980s.[8] At 18, he and musician Greg Kurstin formed the short-lived experimental pop band Funkraphiliacs, whereupon he was signed to Capitol Records as a solo artist.[9] He worked on the album Peter Gabriel's Real World studios for about a year[10] until drug addiction and psychological issues forced him into hospitalization.[11] After his stay in rehab, Wyatt moved to a small mountain town in Colorado for several years, and he briefly attended the University of Colorado.[12][13]


After briefly studying at classical conservatory, Wyatt returned to New York City and shortly thereafter formed the group The A.M. with Michael Tighe and Parker Kindred, formerly of Jeff Buckley's band. The group released one album on Universal UK before disbanding in 2005.[14][15]

Wyatt is currently the lead singer and co-songwriter for the Swedish band Miike Snow.[16][17][18]

Outside of his own projects, Wyatt has worked extensively with other artists, writing and/or producing songs with Carl Barat,[19][20] Mark Ronson,[21][22][23] Tiggers, Dragons of Zynth, Coco Sumner, and others. In 2011 Wyatt co-wrote "Grenade" with Bruno Mars. The song went to number one in several countries including the U.S, and earned a Grammy Nomination for Song of the Year.[24][25] Recently, Wyatt began creating sound installations and video art for galleries, and debuted Waves, a collaboration with photographer / video artist Sebastian Mlynarski, at The New Museum in New York.[1] He co-created the music for the 2012 one-act ballet "Carbon Life" along with Mark Ronson and Wayne McGregor.[26]

Wyatt released his debut solo album Descender on April 16, 2013, on INGRID/Downtown Records, the album features the 75-piece Prague Philharmonic Orchestra with additional appearances by The Libertines' Anthony Rossomando, Spiritualized's bassist Brad Truax, Amen Dunes' Damon McMahon, and Tortoise's John Herndon.[27] The only live performance of the album was at Capitale in New York City on May 10, 2013, as part of the Downtown Festival.[28] A short documentary directed by Sebastian Mlynarski, entitled "The Making of Descender," [29] was made in collaboration with The Creator's Project on March 19, 2013. In the documentary Wyatt discussed the challenges of completing the album in only a month, as that was the only time he had between Miike Snow tours and it gave a behind the scenes look at the recording process.[30][31]

The first single from the project, "And Septimus...", was made available for streaming on February 19, 2013, and a music video for the single that was filmed in Buenos Aires and directed by Sebastian Mlynarski, premiered on Rolling on May 7, 2013.[27]

In May 2015, Wyatt collaborated with Flume on his track "Some Minds", featuring vocals and lyrics.[32]

Andrew Wyatt earned the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2019 for "Shallow", which he co-wrote with Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson and Anthony Rossomando.[33] For Wyatt, Ronson and Rossomando, it was their first nomination and first win; for Lady Gaga, it was her second nomination and first win.[34]

On June 29, 2019, Wyatt joined Liam Gallagher onstage at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival, playing guitar on "The River", which he co-wrote with the former Oasis frontman.[35] It was one of eleven tracks co-written by Wyatt to feature on Gallagher's second album Why Me? Why Not., seven of which he also produced.[36] The album was released in September 2019, and reached number one in the UK charts.[37]
