ABOUT

Hey Humanity,

My name is Andrew. I am a guitarist and song writer and am currently looking to fill out my band into the four piece that it needs to be ! My drummer and I have been working together for three years now and we are seeking the bass groove master and our keyboard wizard. Hit me up if you may be interested ! We'd love to hear from you.

Influences

Too many to list them all as I am influenced by many musicians and genres. Some of my favs include Phish, The Grateful Dead, Medeski, Martin, & Wood, John Scofield, The Greyboy Allstars, Herbie Hancock, Hendrix, etc. For me, it is all about dialing in the groove and keeping it in the pocket. Funk is honestly my favourite because of the tight rhythmic syncopation, however, our repertoire and quest to use the music as an explorative vehicle for jamming leads us to cover a wide array of feels and genres all with the goal to make people dance.

EQUIPMENT

Too long to list. I run many pedals to modulate the sound, hollow body electric to achieve greater sustain on long notes. Multiple amps + recording equipment, etc.
