Hailing from what is cited as the songwriting capital of the world, Nashville, emerging indie-pop virtuoso andrews’ is in good company, rapidly rising the ranks to one of the most promising new acts both nationally and internationally with his crisp dreamlike sound and stellar songwriting. Recent track Lost In The Fire caught our attention with soulful crossover appeal and powerhouse vocals, reminiscent of the likes of The Japanese House.
We had a quick chat with him to share some of his story.
Hi, andrews’! Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. To start with, how would describe your sound and how you came to it?
I like to consider myself an indie pop artist but I definitely have a strong influence from artists like Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, S. Carey type of stuff that you can hear in the music.
Can you narrow it down to a song, album or artist that inspired you to start writing music?
I think the earliest recollection of music I have is Bruce Springsteen, I think I have always have had music around and have been inspired from a ton of different genres and artists.
There are some clear influences that come across in your single Lost In The Fire, but what influences your music that we wouldn’t expect?
I’m a big singer-songwriter and Americana fan and I think that affects some melodic stuff for me from the origination of a song.
Can you tell us something about yourself that we don’t know already?
I constantly test the boundaries of no shoes no service and Jimmy Buffet is my role model.
Finally, what can we look forward to from you next?
2019 is gonna be a really fun year, I’m starting a studio, releasing 2 EP’s and touring quite a bit. We are doing a couple EP’s.
