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

NOW BOOKING 2019
Twenty-seven year old Andy Sydow is quickly becoming a strongly established facet in the local Colorado scene. He has played opening slots for Tab Benoit and Delbert McClinton at the Gothic Theater, Anders Osborne at the Caribou Room and Dick Dale at the Bluebird Theater. He's also performed at several festivals including the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Music Festival and been nominated for several awards for his piano playing and songwriting by the Colorado Blues Society.
Sydow's fourth release, Reasons For Departure (produced by Grammy nominated Colorado Music Hall of Fame Inductee Chris Daniels) was released in May of 2018. This 10 track full length record is filled with richly detailed songwriting and melodies in the style of Jackson Browne, Jason Isbell, Dan Fogelberg and Jackie Greene.
Sydow has had several residencies around Colorado (3 Freaks Brewery in Highlands Ranch, The Summit Steakhouse in Aurora, Boathouse Cantina in Salida) and has toured the U.S. and Canada with his band, the Andy Sydow Band.
Check the shows tab www.andysydow.com/shows to see a full list of upcoming performances. Andy and his band of rotating musicians put on a blistering live show that gears towards rock and roll with a mix of Americana and blues. While Sydow spends at least half of the evening on guitar, he'll unexpectedly jump over to the piano to show off his significant boogie-woogie piano chops.
