Wotman, Andrew : On My Own
Andrew Wotman hails from Long Island, New York. From the age of two he was harmonizing with the music on the radio while in his car seat. His Father exposed him to the roots of rock and roll at an early age. While his friends were listening to boy band- pop he was listening to the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and the Who. Not only was he drawn to rock music, but Funk music and hip hop as well. Andrew Wotman is influenced by all genres of music, but has a certain 'funkiness' deep in his soul. At the Age of 11 he bought his first instrument: a bass guitar, and the music has been not only pumpin' through his blood, but through his hands ever since. Shortly after he learned the guitar (his main instrument), and since then has learned the piano, the drums, and various other instruments. Some may call it an obsession, but it's better described as an untamed soul yearning for a good groove. In the Fall of 2006 he started recording his debut album with two members of the band Silvertide(J Records) as his producers. These cats were none other than Kevin Frank and Mark Melchiorre Jr. They recorded at BackYard Studios in North East, Philadelphia. All songs, and lyrics were written by Andrew Wotman, as well as all instruments played on the album, other than drums by Kevin Frank and occasional guitars and Keyboards by Mark Melchiorre Jr.
