Andrew Foster-Williams (born Wigan) is an English lyric bass-baritone, concert singer and recitalist.

Andrew Foster-Williams read music at Royal Academy of Music in London, graduating with a first-class honours degree. He has since been made an Associate of the Royal Academy. He went on to post-graduate study at the Opera Course, then jointly run by the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, graduating in 1998. He won many prizes whilst at the Royal Academy; including, amongst others, The Opera Prize, The Flora Nielsen Recital Prize and The Elena Gerhardt Lieder Prize.

The Daily Telegraph in London named him their "Newcomer of the Year" and said "Andrew Foster-Williams is an impressively intelligent artist who sang both Leporello in Don Giovanni and Alidoro in La Cenerentola with impressive vocal polish. We should be hearing more of him." In 2009 he sang the role of Marco in the world premiere recording of Saverio Mercadante's Virginia with the London Philharmonic Orchestra for the Opera Rara label.[1]
