Where’s Andy Kim Now? WFGR Investigates

Ever wonder what happened to your favorite singers from the 70s? WFGR is taking it upon ourselves to dig deep into your favorite artists pasts. Today- Andy Kim

Kim started out as a songwriter for the Archies – a pre-fab band in the vein of the Monkees that was essentially a means for maniacal producer Don Kirschner to sit behind the curtain and control the entire operation. Unless you’ve never touched a radio dial in your entire life, you’re probably familiar with the Kim-penned hit “Sugar, Sugar.”

As far as Kim’s solo career, The Archies were a springboard to a recording contract and a 2 album dea.l After that, it gets pretty thin pretty fast. He released 20 singles between 1964 and 2010. Two songs were hits – “Baby, I Love You” made it to number nine in 1969, and “Rock Me Gently” which went all the way to Number One in 1974.

So, where’s Andy Kim now?

  • He still performs in Canada, and he even has a website. Granted it hasn’t been update mostly since 2010.
  • He does a Christmas charity event in Toronto, regularly featuring other popular Canadian acts (Alex Lifeson from Rush plays perennially).
  • He released an album earlier this year. His first in almost 20 years.
  • And, he still has great hair.

We’re very happy for Andy but it’s the classic stuff we love!
