The story teller hailing from Regina is becoming one of Canada’s best young singer-songwriters. Andy Shauf is known for his self-reflective, captivating lyrics and intimate, heartfelt live shows.
His album, The Bearer of Bad News, was written and recorded over the course of four years in his parents’ Saskatchewan basement. The album was originally released in 2012 but has recently been re-released via Portland label, Tender Loving Empire and Party Damage Records.
“The Bearer of Bad News is a brilliant album. It is one that must be listened to several times, as with each listen something new is heard and a different emotion is experienced. It’s a thoughtful, dense, and engrossing album, and it is one that will make music fans look at Saskatchewan in a different way – a province that can create truly great songwriters who captivate and profound.” (The Revue)
Andy Shauf will be performing at HPX 2015 on October 23rd at St. Matthew’s Church with The Weather Station and Nap Eyes. Check the schedule for more details.
