Biography

Nashville, United States

Years ago, Kyle Andrews traded Chicago’s bone-chilling winters for Nashville’s constantly flowing spring of music. Ever since, Kyle has been polishing gems unearthed in the cluttered corners of his bedroom studio. His first official album, Amos In Ohio (2006), set the bar for the thinking-person’s indie-pop. Kyle proved that DIY-style production didn’t have to lack depth, and his intimate songwriting style (sometimes emotional, sometimes enigmatic, always engaging) delivered tracks that were so fun to sing along with, you didn’t mind that they were stuck in your head for weeks. WXPN (NPR) dubbed Amos as “instantly memorable… packed with infectious hooks” and praised Kyle’s “ear for melody that’s as strong as his songwriting ability.”

Kyle answered the praise with his seven-song EP, Find Love, Let Go (2007), including the single “Get Mad,” which was featured as KCRW’s Song of the Day. Kyle’s last full-length, Real Blasty (2009), incorporated all the strengths critics lauded in Kyle’s previous work but pushed his sound in a new direction. Darker and more aggressive songs found balance in upbeat, danceable tracks like “Sushi” and polished ballads. Andrews proved his acoustic-pop sensibilities were just as comfortable in big, electronic-laden club surroundings. Tamara Vallejos of NPR described it as “…an upbeat album for sad people who just want to dance. A lesser artist could get weighed down by the broody lyrics covering unrequited love, insecurities and general enui. But Andrews pulls it off by pairing his angst with bright electro-pop rhythms and irresistible hooks.”
