Andrew Farriss net worth: Andrew Farriss is an Australian rock musician who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Andrew Farriss was born in Perth, Western Australia, and started his first band in high school. He met Michael Hutchence while in school, as well, and subsequently asked him to join the group that would become known as INXS. Initially, Andrew Farriss played keyboards for the group, and then began playing guitar, harmonica, and providing some percussion, as well. The members of INXS wrote many of their early songs collectively, but songwriting duties eventually became the sole responsibility of Farriss and Hutchence. In addition to writing, touring, and recording with INXS, Farriss has also written and/or produced tracks for Jenny Morris, Yothu Yindi, and GUN, among other artists. He also participated in the reality series, "Rock Star: INXS", which followed the group as they looked for a new lead singer following the death of Michael Hutchence.
Andrew Charles Farriss (born 27 March 1959 in Perth, Western Australia) is a rock musician best known as the keyboardist and main composer for the Australian band INXS.


Farriss first met INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence at Davidson High School after breaking up a fight between Hutchence and another student. The two eventually became friends, but it would be a long time before Hutchence joined Andrew's band, which would become INXS.
Farriss is credited solely with keyboards on the band's earliest albums, but by 1984's The Swing, he was listed as playing guitar, as well. On stage, he also plays harmonica and various hand-held percussion instruments.
While INXS' early albums credit the band as songwriters, by their third album, Shabooh Shoobah, the team of Farriss as composer and Hutchence as lyricist was well established. While there were some INXS songs written by other members of the group, or by Farriss alone, it was this combination that brought INXS the majority of their international success in the 1980s and 1990s. In fact, Farriss co-wrote all of the band's top-40 hits in the US, except for "Disappear," which was written by Hutchence with Farriss' younger brother Jon, who is the band's drummer.
Despite extensive writing, recording and touring commitments with INXS, Farriss collaborated with many other Australian artists in a songwriting or production capacity. His most significant early collaboration was with Jenny Morris, a New Zealand singer who had sung back-up vocals on INXS' 1985 hit album, Listen Like Thieves. Farriss has also co-written and produced with the Australian Aboriginal band Yothu Yindi, Australian country singer Tania Kernaghan and Scottish rockers GUN.
In 2005, INXS launched a reality TV show, Rock Star: INXS, a worldwide search for a new lead singer. While all of INXS knew it would be impossible to replace Michael Hutchence, who died in 1997, they wished to carry on bringing their music to the world. Farriss was ofte
