Biography

Appearing on Indie Rock Café’s list of Best Songs of 2011 and described by critics as a band to watch, Falling Andes is a 3-piece indie pop-rock band formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in late 2010. The group is comprised of Dan Peluso (vocals), Jordan Wood (keyboards, electronic drums, and bass), and Mike Boyer (guitar). The music of Falling Andes consists of lively pop songs incorporating tight rhythms, harmonious guitars, exuberant keyboards and synths, and distinctive vocals, all packaged in a polished production. It has been described as “catchy” with “easily digestible hooks … with a flavor all their own.”

The founding members of Falling Andes, Peluso and Wood, released the band’s first single, “San Francisco,” in the spring of 2011. The single quickly garnered attention from music blogs, print publications, and college and AAA radio stations. Shortly thereafter, the duo paired with Boyer and drummer Peter Natishan to release the band’s first album, “Frantic,” with Dave Hidek at Tree Lady Studios, in Pittsburgh, and began actively touring the Northeast and Midwest United States, playing shows in New York City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Chicago. In the spring of 2012, Natishan was replaced by drummer Toni Crough. Crough, now living in Los Angeles is being temporarily replaced by an assortment of electronic drums at live shows while the search for the next live drummer is complete.

In the summer of 2012, Andes began work on their sophomore album, “Castlevania,” at the band’s own recording studio, and with Stan Kleja at Audible Images Recording Studios, in Pittsburgh. They finished recording the album in 2013.
