Andy Metz is a Seattle-born, Chicago-built, and Oakland-based songwriter who sings tightly constructed folk songs that vary between the earnest and irreverent. Despite his roots, Andy grew up less as a product of grunge and more a product of "Lump," which has informed his songwriting sensibilities as they've swung from hard rock (Hero Monster Zero) to hip hop (8090). In any genre, Andy's songwriting style is chorus-driven and intended to produce songs that take up residence in your brain long after the track ends.
The new track "Chicago" was released on August 18th, 2017.
Delusions is the latest full-length album from Andy Metz, and was released on December 8th, 2015. Here's some of what the press has said about Andy and his most recent album:
"His melodies, too, are engaging and memorable, and he has an appealingly chill singing voice that he put entirely at the service of his songs."
- Robert Rodi, NewCity
"Andy Metz's album, Delusions, is the most real album from a songwriter this year."
- Hannah Frank, OnAxis Music & Media
"...something for every taste and filled with some very deft songwriting. Delusions is nothing short of a fine reality."
- Rob Ross, Popdose
"He speaks from the heart and that is far more compelling than someone who uses a bunch of ten-dollar words to say nothing at all."
