What separates music from ordinary sound is how frequencies are organized in terms of rhythm, melody and harmony. There is a prevailing structure created through this organization that draws specifically from human emotion and forms an aura around the sound. As a result, the music transmits the feelings that were most predominant at the moment of creation. The music that I compose is focused on drawing from our experience, both good and bad, in order to express an aesthetic that retains the essence of a remedy. My mission as an artist and a musician is to create songs that capture this very essence. Andrew was born in Lancaster, PA and began saxophone at the age of 10.
