Lowercase Noises was birthed out of a small college dorm with very basic recording gear, a slew of effects pedals and an electric guitar. As Andy’s passion for and interest in the recording/mixing process bloomed, along with his talent for producing, songs and styles emerged that built the framework for what Lowercase Noises is today.
His first serious effort and full-length release, Seafront (Nov. 2009), was a unique blend of styles, including ambient, post-rock and electronica, as well as intriguing dialogue and field recordings.
Marshall (May 2010), named after and written for Andy’s son, is ambient at its best; smooth-moving, quiet melodies that ease the listener from one song to the next in a truly lullaby-like quality.
Next came Ambient Songs (Aug. 2010), to tide fans over until the next studio album; a collection of simpler, ‘live’ recordings taken from Andy’s acclaimed YouTube videos that expressed his ability to perform what were essentially improvised songs.
Carry Us All Away (Dec. 2010) was a true milestone in Lowercase Noises’ career. An appropriate follow-up to the two ‘quieter’ previous releases, Carry Us All Away aims for nothing shy of epic, displaying Andy at the top of his form. The album opens with a fantastic bang, then carries the listener through 45 more minutes of bliss, dipping occasionally to lovely ambient swoons, then vamping back into satisfyingly big beats and driving melodies.
Most recently, Migratory Patterns (May 2011) was released, exploring a sort of soft-electronica sound coupled with somewhat darker melodies, making it Lowercase Noises’ most contemplative album yet. Additionally, the album is loosely themed after the mysterious ‘52-hertz Whale,’ a lone-traveling creature who has long evaded researchers. This whale’s low-frequency call can be heard on Migratory Patterns.
Andy has also performed and collaborated on a number of other artist’s albums, and is currently the lead guitarist for Albuquerque singer/songwriter Chuck Elmore.
