Where To Buy

His debut full length album release “Far As The Eye Can See”, was self-released on October 23, 2022, and features original jazz compositions composed and arranged by Andrew.  This collection of songs are a representation of Andrew’s musical experience living in both Boston MA, where he spent 2 years completing a Masters degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, and Winnipeg MB, where he has steadily built a career as an active jazz musician and prominent contributor on the Winnipeg music scene.  These songs are inspired by the beauty that each of these landscapes offer, along with the generous nature of the musicians that inhabit them. The group includes some of the best jazz musicians in Manitoba who are also long time friends and musical collaborators from many other musical configurations, which creates a comfort level and connection within the music that usually takes other bands years to develop.   

His music evokes an easy listening jazz sound with catchy grooves, whimsical and memorable melodies, tied in with interesting harmonies, forms and chord progressions.  This results in a more accessible form of modern jazz that can both pull in the listener for a deeper listening experience or provide a calming background atmosphere.  Andrew’s compositions come from a place of honesty, and he intentionally follows and makes sense of the sounds that are in his head, which creates unexpected musical turns that flow together seamlessly and will make you want to listen again and again.
