Americana Meets Indie-pop

"His playing with The Silent Boys and again on his solo albums, compares well with The Smiths (Johnny Marr) primarily, as well as the fifth LP Echo & the Bunnymen (Will Sergeant), the Chills (Martin Phillipps). This is slighly lighter fare than The Silent Boys, with a softness in self-production that sounds like Everything But the Girl, and an occasional harmonica on top of a Peter Hook bassline that's New Order-esque. But this is really a resonant guitar primer, as he tugs and coaxes dreamy little leads with his deft pick throughout, as if he really does his singing through his axe. Nice like a light spring breeze."

-- Jack Rabid, publisher of The Big TakeOver

  • Patty Casey: Vocals, Flute
  • Lane Gibson: Mastering, Vocals
  • John Morand: Drums
  • Eirikur Baldursson: Cello

So you see, the "band" in JohnAndrewBand is a floating concept, but from this has come a wonderful spectrum of influences. Equally important are the influences of his band mates and life long friends from the Silent Boys: Wallace Dietz, Bruce Smith, John Morand, and Michael Click. And while on the subject of gratitude, most special thanks are due to John's wife Tracy and their super children: Ian, Evan, and Maitreya. And a big shout out to his fans. Thank you for your support.
