BandFolkPop

Pseudo Alt-County Pop. Andrew lives and plays in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His use of catchy melodies, unconventional song structures, and different lyrical styles set him apart from the rest of the singer/songwriter crowd.

Biography

Born in Toronto, Andrew has spent much of his life elsewhere. At 13 his parents moved to Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. This small north-western town was to be his home for the next year. He made friends and began to settle into the relatively bizarre culture in which he was suddenly immersed.

At 14 he moved to Edinburgh, Scotland. There he attended boarding school for two years.

At the end of those two years he moved back to Totonto to finish high-school.

He now lives and plays in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Having just added bass and drums to his live act Andrew captivates crowds with both gentleness and intensity.

Lyrics

Brighten My Day

Written By: Andrew Harry

You can't cook without playing with fire,
You can't build without taking it higher.

If you can't walk then you can't run,
If you never leave your house you'll never see the sun.

Don't try and brighten my day,
'Cause I'll surely find a way,
To bring the clouds back over head,
And show you you're as good as dead.

If you don't close your eyes it won't get dark,
If you don't open up she can't break your heart.

If you don't sit and play you can't win the game,
If you don't say a word you won't get your way,

But don't try and brighten my day,
'Cause I'll surely find a way,
To bring the clouds back over head,
And show you you're as good as dead.

If You Come Along

Written By: Andrew Harry

I want to go somewhere I've never seen,
and I want to get there soon.
I want to be something I've never been,
and I want to become it soon.

But whenever you try and change a little,
Someone always comes and gets in the middle,
I'm not the kinda guy who can ever say no,
So if you come along I'm fucked,
If you get in the middle I'm fucked.

I want to smoke like I've never smoked before,
And I want a smoke right now.
I want to drink like i've never drank before,
So drunk I fall on the floor.

But whenever you try and change a little,
Someone always comes and gets in the middle,
and I'm not the kinda guy who can ever say no,
So if you come along I'm fucked,
If you come along I'm fucked,
If you come along I'm fucked.
