BALCONYTV TORONTO IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE UNDERGROUND GARAGE
PRESENTED BY SARAH RICHES
FILMED DURING INDIE WEEK CANADA 2011!
CHECK OUT ANDY'S 2010 SOLO PERFORMANCE ON BALCONYTV AT:
Maybe it's the curly locks. Or those blue-green eyes. Maybe even that boyish charm. Or perhaps it's the emotionally raw vocals, stellar guitar skills, and electrifying performances that get us every time.
New Brunswick's Andy Brown has emerged a must-see (and hear) performer on the Canadian music scene. Touted as a performer that 'gets into your head and heart', the 2010 Galaxie Rising Star winner has a contemporary folk-rock style all his own, taking you on a lyrical journey that transcends a realm torn between love, happiness, and sorrow.
His hit song 'Ashes' was featured in season 2 of Rookie Blue (ABC/Global), and hours after the episode, Andy's song and album landed #1 on iTunes Canada singer-songwriter chart and 'Ashes' reached #2 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart in the United States.
Andy is making headway with his band's sophomore album, False Alarm, a wonderful blend of belt-out ballads, folk-rock, and pop-infused hits. 'Crazy', the first single from the album, has made its way onto 100+ radio stations across the country, landed at #1 on the nationally syndicated East Coast Countdown, and placed Andy as a finalist in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition (2010).
In the fall of 2010, Andy won the North-American wide "Test Drive 2010" competition sponsored by Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings and nabbed three 2010 Music New Brunswick Awards (Male Recording Artist, Emerging Artist, and Pop Recording of the Year). The band's visceral energy on-stage is contagious and has landed them at some of the countries top music festivals (Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, NXNE, Indie Week, Canadian Music Week).
Andy is currently writing for his next album, which he will start recording early 2012.
Tune in next time!
