About the Event
The crackle of a needle on a record; the static hum of an old car radio; the uneven growl of an amp warming up. Fall into these spaces between music and listener, between rawness and electricity, and you’ll pinpoint the genesis of Canadian singer-songwriter Andrew Waite’s sound: rugged yet fresh, dynamic yet timeless, and above all else, honest.
Andrew Waite’s passion for songwriting, stage performance and education bleed into the music he crafts—his songs embody unmistakably real emotion, producing a delightfully unique experience when paired with his energetic live-show style. And that passion is really paying off: in the midst of his most successful few years to date, Andrew Waite’s first solo effort, Tremors (2018), garnered Waite 11 awards and nominations, including two East Coast Music Awards nomination for Rock Recording of the Year (alongside Wintersleep, Adam Baldwin and Motherhood) and Video of the Year.
Mixing folksy vocals with high-powered instrumentals, Andrew Waite’s approach to songwriting and performance is inspired by a range of artists, including Dan Mangan, Glen Hansard, Jason Isbell, and Bruce Springsteen. From sold-out concerts with 10-piece bands and booming horn sections—to pared-down, intimate acoustic sessions—Andrew’s range speaks to his refusal to be boxed in. Waite recently worked with producer Chris Kirby on his sophomore album (Released October 2021), which includes co-writes with the Trews front runner Colin MacDonald. The third single, “Full Time, Tryin’ to Luv”, was released in June, 2021and is an addictively catchy tune that takes a whimsical look at how our biggest roadblock in finding love can often be ourselves.
