We are pleased to host Charlottesville’s own Andrew Neil as this month’s featured artist.
Andrew Neil is considered an “outsider” music artist, according to Daniel Johnston, and is included in Ranker’s list of “Best Outsider Music Artists,” which ranks the top outsider music artists/bands in the world. When listening to Andrew perform live, one quickly realizes they are hearing something unique, distinctive and very special. It’s a combination of Andrews raw, unpolished driving rhythm, percussive guitar playing on his vintage nylon string Ovation, and his soft yet powerful and emotionally charged vocals as he takes one on an uncompromising musical journey. His songwriting and vocal delivery contains musical influences from Elliot Smith, Anthony Kiekies, Kurt Cobain, Nick Drake and Daniel Johnston.
