Bio

Andrew Dunn
is a songwriter from Jersey, where talent seems to grow in the fertile
soil. His poignant wit and infectious melodies are staples of his canon
of memorable story songs drawn from everyday theater of life moments.
Raised in the Raritan Valley of central New Jersey, he spent years
playing trumpet for school marching band before discovering the acoustic
guitar and songwriting in his late teens. 

Finding
his instrument, he quickly found his network and graduated from Rowan
University with a music education degree while trading notes, swapping
songs and gigging with rising folk singers of the time, Antje Duvekot,
Jackie Tice and Gregg Cagno, among others. He was an invited participant
on the songwriting compilation, Southside Sunday Nights, Vol. 1, which
included John Gorka, the preeminent songwriter of that time. Andrew
spent over a decade as a school music teacher while honing his passion
for rock and roll, country and folk into an acoustic folk-pop sound all
his own. 

Dunn has
now left the classroom for the stage. In the troubadour tradition, he
has been carving his way back as a factory worker, a carpenter, and a
Triple-A driver composing lyrics and melodies between calls. His keen
and often surprising observations deconstruct life's complexities,
framing them like a poet journeyman on a building site. A favorite on
the NJ folk scene, Andrew has been repeatedly featured on the legendary
stages of The Folk Project and Godfrey Daniels. He has opened for folk
icon, Judy Collins and shared songwriting nights with veteran
songwriters Tice, Bill Hall, and former Melanie sideman, Ron Heacock. 
The
music, like his point of view, is full of space and completely
irresistible. His songs have been called “rare…with a gravity akin to
James Taylor.” Dunn’s latest CD, House Above the Factory, reintroduces
his momentum as an artist and places an Americana shine on his unique
panorama of everyday experiences.
