Andrew Kirell

Andrew Kirell is a Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter who, by day, is a journalist, and by night, is a soul-searcher looking to make it his only job to create some good ol' fashioned, tear-in-your-beer, alt-country rock 'n' roll music.

End of the Year: 2016

New Song: "All Lies to Me"

Hey all—

It's your boy, Andrew. Here's another song I've recorded for you to hear.

"All Lies to Me" was recorded earlier this year with the help of Bradley Cordaro on drums, engineering, and mixing; and Ben Silverstein on the bass.

Click on the image to hear it over at BandCamp. It's a decent song. Not sure about those wind chimes, though.


Live at The Way Station, 5/4

Who: Andrew Kirell.
What: Playing music.
Where: The Way Station, 683 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY
When: Wed., May 4, 2016, at 8:00 p.m.
Why: It's a complicated question, one that great philosophers from Aristotle to Lao-Tzu to Kant to Neil DeGrasse Tyson have attempted to answer. But the short answer: No one really knows. Just do what you want, so long as you don't harm others. And go see live music and enjoy $5 Jameson drinks all night at a great Dr. Who-themed bar.
