Andy Hoskinson is an independent singer-songwriter specializing in acoustic, folk, pop, and rock. He is based in the Washington, DC metro area, and plays acoustic guitar, harmonica, and keyboard. Andy has been active in the local music scene since 2008.
Many of his original songs focus on news and current events - often tongue-in-cheek pieces providing political commentary/satire set to music. For example, Hoskinson takes on the issue of health care reform in his ballad "HMO Blues." In "Robber Barons," Hoskinson highlights the pitfalls of our current financial crisis. In his song "The Guardian," Hoskinson, an Army veteran himself, paints a poignant picture of what it is like for a soldier to leave his family behind to fight a war in a distant land.
Hoskinson's musical influences include Jimmy Buffett, John Fogerty, Bob Marley, John Mellencamp, and Neil Young. Free tracks can be downloaded from his official website at http://hoskinson.net/music/.
