Formerly best known from the trio The Scourge of the Sea,  Andrew English earned new praise touring nationally as Englishman, with a self-titled LP and the EP Taxi-Dermy. Some choice words:

“This bearded folk-pop upstart and his two-man band have been opening for some big indie names lately, including Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Clem Snide and Vandaveer…. they belong in the next class of unlikely idols.”  – The Daily Page (Madison, WI)

“Englishman’s Andrew English is a songwriter who writes in a style that reminds of old Grandaddy and All-Time Quarterback material, with a steady steam of gorgeous melody and layers of detailed sounds and beats.” – Sean Moeller, Daytrotter

“… wonderful harmonies and heartbreaking lyrical imagery. Andrew English carries a sense of wisdom in his storytelling that helps him stand out from the flock of singer-songwriters.” – Shannon Cleary, The Richmond Scene (Richmond, VA)

“Warm, unassuming, golden-throated pop; former Scourge of the Sea Andrew English’s fractured fables-turned-poignant parables make playfully plaintive, happily galloping troubadour poetry. Washed in inquisitive innocence and plummeting conundrums, the cleverly cozy “Englishman” shines in simple pleasures. Refreshingly buoyant and quietly subversive.” – Maximum Ink Magazine

“Englishman has a talent for ensconcing its words with the perfect chord here and electronic fuzz there. Cozy and accessible, Englishman gives listeners something to sink into. Beautiful melodies and lyrical delights arise at every pass, each listen yielding something new.” – Mixtapes/Heartbreaks
