Biography

Selected as one of L.A. Weekly's Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2016, nav/attack is the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer/engineer Andrew Lynch.  Born in rural Alaska, Lynch is the singer, synth warrior, horn player, and drum machine enthusiast behind nav/attack.

Discovered by 1950's pop star Pat Boone (Elvis used to open for him), Lynch was quickly signed to Boone's publishing company.

Lynch is also a filmmaker and directed all the music videos nav/attack, which have premiered on The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard.com, and Pure Volume.

Lynch has performed on BBC Radio 6 Music, infoFRANCE, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson as a member of actor/photographer/musician Adam Goldberg's band, The Goldberg Sisters. He most recently recorded and mixed Goldberg's "Stranger's Morning" LP.

On two coffee-fueled occasions, Lynch did studio time with punk supergroup OFF!: recording and mixing their "First Four EP's" box set and engineering their full-length follow-up "OFF!"

For nav/attack, Lynch plays everything himself (even trumpet) but for drums enlists frequent Danger Mouse collaborator, Steven Nistor. The result is an ambientronic album that combines the slowly evolving melodic patterns of Steve Reich, the piano beats of Radiohead, and the lyrical idiosyncrasies of Talking Heads.
