Andi Kezh debuted as a headliner at Eddie’s Attic and showcased some of her original music and some crowd pleasing cover songs. Her music is an eclectic mix of Americana pop and alternative folk. Andi Kezh’s every growing catalog of music continues to evolve and I expect that she will be bending genres for many years to come. Throughout her set at Eddie’s Attic her original music highlighted her ability to connect with the crowd. In between songs her mix of humor and anecdotes give a stage presence that belies her youth.
Andi Kezh performed two new songs tonight: “New Me” and “The River.” “New Me” will be officially released on her birthday, January 25th, but you can hear it hear and on our Libro Musica YouTube Channel.
When asked about the meaning of “New You” she said “I wrote “New Me” in a time in my life when I was really starting to take control of my own life and music career, and standing tall as my own person against not only the world but my own doubts and critiques. I think this song describes my sound and attitude at the moment.” The studio version of this song is all Andi Kezh, with her tracking the acoustic guitar, lead vocals and all harmonies and background harmonies.
Libro Musica Q&A:
What was the first album that you added to your personal music library?
The first song added to my music library was probably Nickel Creek, a folk band I have been listening to my entire life. I think it plays a large role in my acoustic roots and guitar focus with sharply pointed harmonies.
What was your most recent addition to your personal music library?
My most recent addition to my music library was St. Vincent’s Los Ageless. I am really intrigued by her dynamic sound, which is very different from anything I’ve heard before. Her electro-pop songs are mixed with detailed lyrics, I dig it.
What was your first live music experience?
My first live concert was Hannah Montana [laugher]. I was probably 5 or 6 and obsessed just like every other little girl. But what can I say? Miley Cyrus to this day still he a phenomenal voice in my opinion.
As for my first experience playing live in public, I actually played at my cousins wedding on the back of a pickup truck (were country). I remember being insanely nervous, but that performance changed everything for me as a musician and performer.
What artist do you wish more people had in their music library?
Anything musical theater related. I know people tend to complain about the cheesy-ness of Broadway, but I think it’s quite genius. The writers and producers of these elaborate soundtracks bring literal life to music, and that’s what it’s all about. I love the dramatic flare and production of music theater. It helps me perform better on stage and write with more passion.
If you could cover one album in your music library which would it be?
I would cover Rumors by Fleetwood Mac, or Melodrama by Lorde. It’s so hard to pick just one!
“Ain’t No Sunshine” is a classic by Bill Whithers that Andi Kezh says she will never get tired of singing. “It grooves and vibes better than any song I can think of, and is such a fun song to jam to with my bandmates to really get our blood pumping musically.” says Andi
