The best kept secret in music


"Goat receives TV/Film exposure"

Millions of people are familiar with the... tunes of New York singer/songwriter Andy Rosen AKA Goat... the viewers of hits like CSI or audiences who helped make the film I Know What You Did Last Summer have heard Goat�s music repeatedly.

...Goat�s newest release Twisted Heart (Engine Room) continues his uncanny pattern of getting success in other media outlets. The new ABC drama Three Moons Over Milford will be featured songs from the disc as well as the upcoming feature film Waltzing Anna. He�ll be performing several selections from it during tonight�s show at Lyrix.

�It�s funny because some people turn their noses up at having songs in commercials, on television or in the movies and make accusations about selling out... But in every instance the company or the producers have simply come to me, said we like the song and would like to use it and don�t even ask me to make any changes in the lyrics or the arrangements.�

...There�s an interesting mix between light, optimistic pieces and very sobering, serious works on Twisted Heart. Some pieces like �Two Sides To Love� or �I Still Remember� could be deemed both thought-provoking and morose, while others like �Monsters,� �Twisted Heart� and �Love & Pain� reflect his desire to pen more lyrically sophisticated and musically intricate material.

An excellent pianist... [Goat's] at his most contemplative on the tunes �Church Bells� and �All Aboard,� where he addresses both social ills and personal misgivings about events he�s witnessed and decisions he�s facing. While still predominantly a pop/rock date, there�s also more edgy passages, complicated arrangements and varied textures on Twisted Heart than the spry and simple setting of �Great Life.�

...Goat made the move to New York during the late �70s. At various times in his life he�s played in a rockabilly band, operated as a booker for clubs and been an accompanist with the Martha Graham Dance School. He even had a stint with a major label as his disc Great Life was issued by Ruffhouse/Columbia.

�I�ve done the major label thing and remember a time when people were coming up to me and talking about things were getting ready to break,� Goat said. �Now my philosophy is simply to take it one day at a time, never get too happy or too upset with the business end and just make the best music you possibly can at all times. If you take care of the music, then the other things seem to work out in the end.� - By Ron Wynn, rwynn@nashvillecitypaper.com

"Goat recalls Al Green, Randy Newman"

�In a mangled, attenuated
voice recalling both Al Green
and Randy Newman, Goat
sings songs of inspiration
and healing and more healing.�

"Goat giving indie artists hope"

"Andrew 'Goat' Rosen's sexy and soulful rock music is giving indie artists and small labels everywhere new hope that widespread radio airplay is possible for the 'little guys.' With 'Two Sides To Love' making it all the way to #21 on Radio & Records' all-important Triple A Indicator airplay chart, Goat's Twisted Heart CD needs to be taken seriously by the mainstream music establishment."
-Jim Nelson - A Taste of Triple A

"Full of contradictions and surprises"

"Devotees of piano-centric rock will get a kick out of Goat. Merging rough-hewn vocals and consummate keyboard chops, the man is full of contradictions and surprises. Tonewise, his initial sonic impression seems dark and cynical, kind of like an uptown Chris Whitley or downtown Bruce Hornsby. But deep down, Goat's a cuddly, love-seeking, sentimental fool with a classic pop craftsman's flair." - Philadelphia Daily News

"Best Voice I've Heard"

"Well, I've got to say that Goat has the best voice I've heard at the Rail since it's Opened."
- Opelika Daily News

"Borrows from jazz, rock, spirituals"

"Goat was a real pleasure to have in studio and the interview went very
well. He was very down to Earth, articulate, entertaining, and of course,
very talented. His sound is very unique, borrowing from jazz, rock and even
spirituals, so it fits with a lot of different music that we're playing.
His originality is a breath of fresh air in an industry that thrives on the
flavor of the week. When we started playing Two Sides we received a lot of
asking who it was so we're were happy with it."

"New music that's fresh"

"It's fun to listen to new music that is fresh. It's a great compliment
to the artist when our dj's take notice to new music and want to know
more about them. It's a pleasant surprise when listeners call in and ask
to hear more. It's rare that all these things are about the same record.
GOAT has accomplished all of this."

Feeling a bit camera shy


Known to all as Goat, Andrew Scott Rosen grew up in Cleveland, the son of baseball great Al Rosen. Goat moved to New York where he managed to secure spots playing with the likes of Nils Lofgren, Will Rambeau, and the legendary Otis Blackwell.

After signing a deal with Interscope, Goat released his critically-acclaimed debut album "Great Life" (Ruffhouse/Columbia) in 1998 and, with little support
from the label, he scored a hit with the title track. Several songs were placed in high profile movies like "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "Supercop,"
a national Kia commercial, and TV shows, including "CSI" and others on MTV, ESPN, UPN, and TNT.

In 2005, Rosen released his second Goat CD "All of My Friends," through Judgment Records/WEA featuring the talents of friends Chris Whitley, T-Bone Wolk, and Larry Campell. The album received a warm reception with
multiple tracks getting significant radio play and the title track charting as high as number five on XM Satellite Radio's alternative rock station XM Cafe.

Goats new album will be released August 22nd,
distributed nationally by Select-O-Hits.
