A quick glance through Andrew’s music collection shows that his genre defying music career seems to have been almost inevitable. Andrew has always gravitated to artists with a restless spirit that evolved over the course of their careers: Neil Young, Ryan Adams, David Bowie, Todd Rudgren. The excitement of uncovering different eras of an artists career and being challenged by new sounds, ideas and fashions clearly inspires and motivates Andrew’s music asswell.
Andrew’s love of the poppier side of music (as showcased on his albums “Hearts in Transit” and “Wake of the Wonder Years”) came full circle when Andrew was invited to open for two of the biggest names in 80s pop: Colin Hay (Men at Work) and Big Country. Andrew made the most of his Colin Hay opening set by relating an anecdote of driving around in his mum’s Jeep Cherokee Laredo in the 80s singing men at work songs. The audience seemed to relate and Andrew got them all singing along.
Since then, Andrew has emerged from the shadow of his heroes to become an artist in his own right. In 2014 his song “Go Get Another Dream” was featured in the film “In Your Eyes” by Joss Whedon’s Bellwether Pictures, and the song appeared on the Lakeshore records soundtrack alongside other artists such as Iron and Wine, and Santigold.
