Biography

Andrew Syn is no stranger to reinvention. Ever since writing his first song at age 8 through a cheap keyboard, Andrew has always been reinventing his music and himself, to create a fresh, new sound, that sets the standard for things to come.

Though his influences range from Metallica to 3 Doors Down, Andrew Syn's sound is pure pop-rock power, which can best be described as a mainstream rock/pop proposal. Never underestimating the genre, Andrew brings familiar elements to his music, but never leaving out his guitar driven background.

Andrew's story starts in 2001 by starting a band using his last name, Syn. Breakups and makeups, as usual with bands reaching known status locally and regionally, marked a decision that would change his life, choosing to go solo. Time showed that it was the right decision, as Andrew started another reinvention: leave the hard-rock scene, and start doing mainstream rock work.

This was until "Beautiful Girl" (from "Inside My Head", 2006) was written. This song was another point of Andrew's reinvention. Taking his trademark mainstream rock sound, he made a fresh new pop/rock sound, which is the base for 2008's "Letters To Myself", which Andrew Syn himself says is his best songwriting and performance approach ever.

On the live scene, Andrew has shared stages with many local and regional bands, and two well-known acts, once in Hidalgo, TX's "Dodge Arena", playing along with Maverick Records artist Tantric, and in Cumbre Tajin 2005, playing along with mexican rock icons Molotov.

Andrew Syn's growth in his songwriting and performance skills has been guided by his will to never feel satisfied, and his rebel attitude to always be on top. 2008's "Letters To Myself" promises to breakthrough Andrew Syn, and position Andrew as one of the best acts in years to come.

Lyrics

Ashes

Written By: Andrew Syn

Dark November, I’m sitting here
With you in my mind
Wishing summer comes ‘round again
And hold you in arms

Just remember everything that we lived
What we did

Let this love grow and make us
Breathe, breathe

Ashes falling
Making way for me
Into your heart

Ashes falling
Dreams of you and me
Oh, dreams

Ashes falling
Ashes into me

Just remember all the things that we lived
What we did

Say I’m worthy, and let this love
Make me breathe, yeah, breathe

Ashes falling
Making way for me
Into your heart

Ashes falling
Dreams of you and me
Oh, dreams

Ashes falling
Ashes into me

Ashes falling
Making way for me
Into your heart

Ashes falling
Dreams of you and me
Oh, dreams

Ashes falling
Falling into me

Ashes falling
Ashes into me

Down To Pieces

Written By: Andrew Syn

If you could feel just what I feel
If you could see that I'm in need
Would it be so hard for you
To take my hand right now?

If you could see under my skin
If you could see how much I bleed
Would it be so hard for you
To think about it?

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it, no...

So now you see me in my bed
Sick and twisted in my head
Don't you feel a little
Bad, yeah, bad for me right now?

If you could hear this through my ears
And you were begging on your knees
It won't be so hard for you
To change your mind

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it, no...

Hey... my life's gone now
Hey... the price's paid now
Hey... I'm sick right now
Sick and twisted, damn it

Hey... help me right now
Hey... feel me right now
Hey... hold me right now
God, please help me, damn it...

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it

Hey... it all went down
And... it all fell down
Hey... it all broke down
Down to pieces, damn it, no...
