Tom Andes sets the stories of the lonely, the brokenhearted, and the downwardly mobile to rowdy, up-tempo traditional American music that feels so good, you forget the bad times. His songs run the gamut from finger-picked acoustic blues to country, from gospel to tunes that might have sounded at home on the indie rock charts in the late 90s. In 2022, Tom released his debut EP, “Static on Every Station.” In a favorable review, writing for Offbeat, Dan Willging called the title track “infectious with charge-ahead energy spearheaded by Andes’ searing guitar tones.” The followup, “Those LA Nights,” was released in 2023. You can read Dan Willging’s review from Offbeat here.
Tom was born and raised in New Hampshire and grew up listening to classic rock, metal, and pop on the radio. A visit to New Orleans when he was 18 changed his life. It ignited his love of American roots music, especially the country blues that had inspired the musicians he’d grown up listening to.
Tom’s band in New Orleans has featured a variety of accomplished New Orleans musicians including Glenn Grass, Mike Perry, Stoo Odom, Beau Bishop, Marc Allen Linam, Hannah Kreiger-Benson, Ian Petillo, Dylan James, and M.X. Turner. The band has played well-received shows at Carnaval Lounge, The Den at Howlin’ Wolf, Saturn Bar, Carrollton Station, Portside Lounge, BJ’s Lounge, BMC Music Club, Dmac’s, and The Domino. One of Tom’s songs, “Uptown Blues,” was included in Dear Rowdy, an Aldora Britain Records compilation of Americana artists, and he was interviewed for the ABR e-zine, giving him international exposure. He has participated in the Mississippi Songwriters Festival, the Ozone Songwriter Festival, and has played guitar for Emily Neustrom and the Fried Honeys.
After living all over the country, on both coasts and twice in New Orleans, in 2024, Tom relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is currently getting established in a new city, where he is writing songs for a full-length record.
