There’s something about a piano and a voice! When you combine this with great songs, it can be magic.
Our guest this week brings these three things together in perfect harmony! Andrew Walesch knows how to tickle the ivories; is passionate about songs from The Great American Songbook; and, is affectionately known as the “boy with the voice!”
So glad to be able to introduce you to this great musician. Catch him on YouTube singing “October Song”.
About Andrew Walesch
A newer face on the Minnesota music scene, Andrew Walesch maintains a very active performance schedule. An in demand singer and pianist, Andrew is known most notably for his unique approach to — and almost obsessive knowledge of — The Great American Songbook. He certainly ventures outside of jazz and the standards, however, and can be found anywhere from a classy cocktail lounge to a rugged piano bar taking requests from just about every genre.
More recently Andrew has focused on songwriting and is working on a project of originals. Andrew has recorded two albums and has sung and played on the stage of the Chicago Theater, the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis and dozens of venues all over the Midwest. In May of 2010, he graduated with a music degree from St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN. Whether recording jingles, producing shows, composing and arranging, or singing as a solo artist and with big bands all over the Midwest, “the boy with the voice,” is known for winning crowds over.
