As you might already know, I've started a new project which I'm calling Cultus. It's mostly going to be ambient music and other forms of experimenting with audio. I'm excited to have a new outlet that is 'low pressure'. Most of these tracks will be made very quickly, with an emphasis on experimentation and spontaneity. Here is another one I just made, called Fear in a Handful of Dust.
I'm a huge fan of albums. All of my favourite albums are more than just a collection of songs. They take time to digest, revealing new details over time. I've always been interested in the process of making an album, and so I'm sure there must be others out there who feel like I do. For those of you who are, I've written some notes on how I made Monster. I hope you enjoy them. - Andrew
Hello friends, my new album 'Monster' is finally here! I'm super excited for you all to hear it. Whether you purchase it or stream it, I just want you to hear it. It's available now on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, & Spotify. Whichever works best for you. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it. I'm an independent artist, and I do this because I truly love it. If you also love it, please share it with a friend. It helps more than you know. Thank you again for all of your support! - Andrew

For those of you who don't know, I'm a composer by day. Here is something I did recently with my friends at Ring The Alarm. It features some handsome dude I've never heard of named Matthew McConaughey.
Recently some very cool fans in Montreal held a private listening party for the new album. Actually sitting down and listening to a record from front to back is a very rare thing these days... and doing that with a group of friends is even more rare. It made me think of why I make music. To be listened to. To be experienced. It doesn't work very well as background music, there is too much going on. It requires attention. Needless to say I feel incredibly honoured that this group of friends would take the time to experience their first listen through the new album as a group. Thanks! Here are a couple photos from that evening:
