Biography

Andrew Foshee is a musician/songwriter from Kansas City, Missouri. He has been writing and recording his own music since the age of sixteen, when his father brought him home The Beatles 'White Album' from a business trip. His music can most easily be described as 'eclectic indie-pop'.

Foshee sings and plays several instruments including guitar, bass, piano, drums and anything he can get his hands on. His 'player of many, master of none' technique has allowed him to generate a wide spetrum of sound. His first album 'Wasting My Time' features Foshee on all instruments, as well as playing the role of producer and engineer. It was recorded in his home during the fall of 2007 and released independently on CD Baby and iTunes early 2008 on Foshee's 'Indolent Music' (ASCAP).

During the summer of 2008, Foshee traveled to Portland, OR, to record 'Melodramatic Popular Song' at Jackpot Recording Studio with engineer Larry Crane. The two, along with the help of various other musicians they found on Craigslist (and featuring San Diego's Aaron Bowen on steel guitar and backup vocals) completed tracking for the album in eight days. It was later mixed and mastered by the very talented Dan Romer in Brooklyn, NY, and released independently on CD Baby and iTunes early 2009, also on Foshee's 'Indolent Music' (ASCAP).

Foshee is currently receiving local airplay on the eclectic Kansas City radio station, 90.9 FM 'The Bridge'.

During his career Foshee has had the opportunity to perform with and open for such acts as Tristan Prettyman, Ben Taylor, Augustana, Aaron Bowen, Greg Laswell, Anya Marina, Schuyler Fisk and Pieta Brown.

Foshee is also the founder of the Kansas City indie-rock band Bipolarbare, and together they are currently recording their debut album. He is also recording an alternative/country album with a local, traveling Nashville recording artist.

Lyrics

For You

Written By: Andrew Foshee

I saw you the minute you walked in the room,
And time it froze when the breathe from your lips spelled 'hello',
And I know it's wrong,
But you'll sing along,
Because I wrote this song for you, for you.

We made love on a bed that was made for one,
And you told me sincerely that you were complete,
And I know it's wrong,
But you'll sing along,
Because I wrote this song for you, for you.

One day you'll look back and see,
That you were way too good for me, for me.

And you'll know it's wrong,
When you sing along,
With this stupid song, for you, for you.
