Biography

Andrew Wyatt began his career in music years ago in his native city of New York where he made a name for himself playing with Joan Wasser and members of the Jeff Buckley Band in Black Beetle, as well as Michael Tighe’s post-punk revival band The A.M. After some “eventful” years involved in pop songwriting, his curiosity led him down the garden path and he decided he would try his luck writing music for an orchestra. He says, “Against my better judgement I became obsessed with doing this, so I decided I would confine my mania to one month.” Armed with a tiny hourglass and an out-of-date version of Apple’s Logic music program, Wyatt went to work. He knew only one city could be home to this ambition, Prague. His reasoning? “The least expensive place to do strings,” he jokes. Upon arrival he realized the language barrier was twofold. He spoke not a word of Czech and none of the players could make sense of his feverishly notated scores. Then, things got better.

Wyatt’s first solo full-length, Descender, finds Wyatt accessing the pop storyteller side of himself while also marking a departure from his recent work with Grammy-winning production duo Bloodshy & Avant in Miike Snow. It’s a lush song cycle that marries timeless instrumentation with deep confession and forward-thinking production, making classical sounds seem thoroughly modern while allowing their untempered natural beauty to still shine.
