Shannon Studio 8:00pm Presented by: The Town of Port Hawkesbury, 101.5 the Hawk, The Reporter, & Maritime Inns

A three-time International Songwriting Competition Finalist (2010, 2011, 2012, Folk/Singer-Songwriter Category), Andy Brown has emerged a must-see performer on the Canadian and International music scene. An official Taylor Guitars and Sennheiser Microphones artist, Andy's song ‘Ashes’ was featured in ABC's hit show ‘Rookie Blue’ in the fall of 2011 which helped shoot both the song, and his sophomore album ‘False Alarm’, to #1 on the iTunes Canada singer/songwriter charts. The album and the song also charted in the top 10 in the same category on the US iTunes charts. His music has since been featured on NBC, CTV, Global TV, Showcase, and CBC, and has earned him a slew of national and international songwriting awards and nominations (2010/2013 Music New Brunswick Awards, 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, 2012/2013 Unsigned Only Competition).
 
With performances alongside some of Canada's top musical exports (Joel Plaskett, The Trews, Matt Mays, Hey Rosetta, Hawksley Workman), support slots for 5-time Grammy Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, and tour stops from Sydney, Nova Scotia to Sydney, Australia, the last few years have been non stop for Andy. His honesty as a songwriter, expressive showmanship, and soaring vocals have made him a fan-favourite wherever he performs.
 
Andy’s latest album ‘Tinman’ was released on April 30th, 2013. The 13 song L.P. features co-writes with some of Canada’s most renowned songwriters, including David Myles, John Angus MacDonald (The Trews), Damhnait Doyle, and Tim Chaisson. In the past twelve months, Andy has visited Australia three times, performed in front of sold out crowds in East Canada and is making waves around North America. Andy’s last Australian tour was as a direct, nationwide support for Australian Idol Winner Damien Leith’s national ‘Without a Fight’ CD release tour with Andy also penning two of the tracks featured on Leith’s new album.
 
Andy is currently in the studio writing and recording for his next album to be released in early 2015.
 
‘Whether its the quiet, romantic stuff or the bouncy folk-pop of Lost. These are all complete, tight songs with impact, any one of them able to stand alone as a polished gem,..this album should be taking him to a lot of places, including awards podiums - Bob Mersereau, CBC Music
 
Tickets are just $20.00 and can be purchased at the PHCC Box Office, (902)625-2591 or online at:  Online Ticket Sales
