Reverb Nation Review
Singer. Songwriter. Piano Man? You would never know Andy Frasco is in his early twenties when listening to his wildly original, yet easily relatable, soulful, piano pop music. Drawing inspiration from such legends as Van Morrison and Billy Joel and being compared to the likes of Ben Folds, Frasco writes and sings with a sincere maturity and an open minded approach to the ever changing pop music scenery.
Hailing from the West San Fernando Valley in southern California, Frasco began singing and playing piano in his junior year at El Camino Real High School. With a “take no prisoners” approach to the music industry, Frasco jumped into the scene, releasing his first EP, “When Fairy Tales Become Tragic Endings” recorded at Zen Seven Studios in Encino, CA. Gaining local praise and a small but die-hard fan base, the 17 year old logged his first tour in the summer of 2004, encompassing 34 of the 50 states.
With his newfound awareness, Frasco began writing his 2nd release, “The Drifters”, a concept recording revolving around a fictional town where ghosts roam free and townspeople live in trees, a metaphorical commentary on where Frasco himself grew up. The Drifters sold over 1000 units in the first 2 weeks of release.
In September 2007, Frasco hit the road again performing extensively throughout his home state of California. Shortly after his return he took the plunge and moved to New York City, writing his best work yet, “Life in Neutral”, a bold, brash, soulful and honest look into Frasco’s new life in the city, highlighting upright bassist Todd Urban and Gospel vocalist Sarah Yvonne Jones. As talented as Frasco is, it is widely believed his ultimate collection is yet to come. Are you ready? Andy Frasco is!
Andy will be performing at the Walnut Room November 12th w/ Kevin Mileski & Reed Foehl. Presented by Homevibe
