Dates of existence


Andy Curran has been in the Canadian music scene since his first band Coney Hatch in 1982. Curran was a founding member, playing with Dave Ketchum, Steve Shelski, and Carl Dixon. Together they released three albums: Coney Hatch (1982), Outta Hand (1983), and Friction (1985). After the band broke up in 1985, Curran formed Soho 69 as the lead singer and bassist. Though the band included Michael Borkosky, Simon Brierley, Glenn Milchem, and later Eddie Zeeman, their debut album was titled Andy Curran (1990). They released a second album, Scatterbrain (1993), and in 1998, they released Caramel, under the band’s new name Caramel. He’s played under the names: Drug Plan, Trailer Park, and Leisureworld. Coney Hatch reunited in 2010, and released a new album, Four, in 2013. Curran never left the music world, as he’s composing music for TSN, CTV, and Inside Sports.
