Kyle Andrews Hits the Studio

Kyle Andrews Hits the Studio

Now that we've made it through the death rattle of our psuedo winter, it finally feels appropriate to reemerge from our hoodies and listen to something a little more upbeat. Just in time for firefly season, Kyle Andrews is in the studio, writing and recording his forthcoming album, which will introduce some brand new, high-energy dance jams to your summertime playlist.

In the ongoing debate surrounding Nashville's perceived intolerance for any music that isn't country music, Kyle Andrews makes for a strong counterargument. He has spent his career transitioning from acoustic arrangements to the digital end of the songwriting spectrum, and his synth-soaked melodies are carving a niche for electropop/rock in Music City, as well as helping to put Nashville on the map for something more than its country stars and cowboy boots. Andrews manages to cloak even his darkest lyrical moments in positivity, the narrative of each song complemented by layers of sonic architecture and bright, poppy hooks.

Though his music has found its way into various television shows and commercials, the Chicago native is also well known for his widely-celebrated music videos. From his video for "You Always Make Me Smile"-- which set the stage for one of the biggest water balloon fights in history-- to the interactive YouTube mosaic created for "Sushi," every aspect of Andrews' career seems to echo the energy and unique charm of his music. Through his personal brand of music, technology, and live performances, Kyle Andrews is creating not only a music career for himself, but an experience for his fans. And with a new album on the horizon, 2012 is going to be an adventure. -- Brianne Turner
