"He has melodies, and he has lyrics, and he shapes his musical clay into images that few writers today are capable of."


Americana, rock, folk, singer-songwriter Andy Sydow is a jack-of-all-trades. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who's lyrics paint a picture of poetic realism, Sydow tours consistently both solo and with a backing band. Throughout the course of a show he’s known to croon an audience with acoustic guitar ballads, sing a few numbers on his lap steel, and even sit down at the keys to show off his surprising boogie-woogie piano chops. He draws comparisons to voices like Paul Simon and Jackson Browne, mixed with a roots rock vibe reminiscent of Tom Petty or Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

In a career spanning over a decade, Sydow has released several albums and singles, toured internationally, received Triple-A airplay (Alibi, 2022 and Keep On Driving, 2023), been a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Songwriter Competition (twice!), and supported numerous acts including: Shane Smith & The Saints, Dick Dale, Chuck Prophet, Tab Benoit, Samantha Fish, Lucero, and Anders Osborne.

After going back to school to take online classes in orchestration and film composition, Sydow put his new skills to good use by arranging and scoring several of his original songs (as well as one Pearl Jam cover) for an orchestra. He worked with classical musicians in Denver to record a six-song EP entitled, Measure 1: Orchestral Arrangements by Andy Sydow, which was released to critical acclaim in December of 2023.

2024 will see the release of a full length album with Anders Osborne that was recorded at Dockside Studios in Maurice, LA. Osborne produced as well as played guitar and sang backing vocals. Mike Dillion provided the percussion, and Casandra Faulconer completed the quartet on bass. 

Aside from his own career as an artist and songwriter, Sydow has production credits that include: Lauren Frihauf (The Voice, Season 19), Payge Turner (The Voice, Season 19), Ian Mahan, Andy Sydow/AJ Fullerton, Racyne Parker, Veronica May, and Jcallen. He has also worked with several artists scoring horn and string arrangements.

When he's not touring, writing, or recording, Sydow spends time talking to other creatives and music industry professionals on his podcast, Middle Class Rock Star. The hour"ish" long program can be found on all streaming platforms, and segments of the show have also been featured on over 30 FM radio stations. MCRS has played host to the likes of: Andy Frasco, Shane Smith & The Saints, Sunny War, Dango Rose (Elephant Revival), Jeremy Lawton (Big Head Todd & The Monsters), Todd Smallie (Derek Trucks, JJ Grey & Mofro), Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Leftover Salmon, and Phil Cook.
