“Solomon’s songs are more intricate and expansive in their melodic construction which allows him to weave rich tales of boyhood dreams and romance”
“Andrew’s passionate songwriting clearly separated himself from the others. I very much look forward to working with him in the studio”
Matt Serletic, Grammy Award Winning Producer
At various points in his life, Andrew Solomon has been many things –an entrepreneur, a music dotcom pioneer as well as a graduate student at Harvard Business School. Throughout each station in life however, the one consistent label that he has held onto most fervently has been “songwriter.” While working in corporate America, Andrew always had an eye on his watch, eagerly waiting for the evening hours at New York’s finest clubs to get behind his piano and play a great set.
His career as a singer/songwriter blossomed during the last decade. Andrew honed his songs and craft playing the most famous venues for singer songwriters in New York City, Boston and Nashville – Mercury Lounge, The Bitter End, The House of Blues, The Bluebird Café. As a graduate of ASCAP's competitive Advanced Songwriting Workshop, his music has been heard on shows on FOX, ABC, CNBC, and PBS. He's been featured in Billboard Magazine, Forbes, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Recent collaborators include Grammy Award winning producer Matt Serletic (Matchbox Twenty, Aerosmith), who praised Solomon's "passionate songwriting." Influenced by Bruce Springsteen, U2, Sting and many others, Solomon writes music that looks for the beauty in the everyday. "I'm interested in those little moments between people that pass quickly, that pass without notice or comment, but are rich with feeling," said Solomon.
Andrew now lives in the San Francisco bay area with his wife and two young boys. His new album, "Something More," is produced by Joey Muller (Savage Garden, Celine Dion) and mastered by Steve Hall (Chris Isaak, Madonna). It will be available through CDBaby and iTunes in April 2009.
