Andre Ethier

Idioma disponível: inglês
Canadian singer/songwriter Andre Ethier writes and plays music that's rooted in contemporary folk while also showing blues influences in his emotionally forthright tunes and quietly passionate vocals. Formerly with the garage rock band the Deadly Snakes, Ethier moved away from the speed and volume of rock & roll as a solo artist while maintaining his love for vintage R&B, and his intimate performances reveal a slow-burning intensity that's present whether he's singing about relationships, his observations about the world, or political and social issues. Ethier was still tempering his rock & roll influences on his solo debut, 2004's Andre Ethier with Christopher Sandes Featuring Pickles and Price, a rambunctious acoustic blues session, while 2008's Born of Blue Fog found him fully committed to his new approach, and 2021's Further Up Island was part of a trilogy that found him experimenting with vintage drum machines. Born in Toronto in 1977, Andre Ethier became interested in music when he was in fifth grade, developing a passion for hard rock and Pink Floyd. In seventh grade, he started taking guitar lessons at school, and in high school he formed a band with his friends called Eighthrib. In 1996, as he was graduating from high school, Ethier and some friends formed a garage rock band called the Deadly Snakes, initially putting the group together to play at a friend's party. Ethier initially expected that they would only last the summer, but the group would stay together for ten years, releasing their debut single in 1997, and issuing their first album, Love Undone, in 1999. The band was expanding their creative vision on 2005's Porcella, their most stylistically varied to date, when the members decided it was time to move on from the group, and the Deadly Snakes broke up in 2006. Ethier had already issued a solo album before the Deadly Snakes split, and 2004's Andre Ethier with Christopher Sandes Featuring Pickles and Price was a blues-influenced acoustic session recorded mostly live in the studio. With 2006's Secondathallam, Ethier adopted a more individual approach, rooted in the blues but with a more subtle and dynamic attack as the instruments took a back seat to the force of his vocals. The acoustic band on Secondathallam gave way to more stripped-down accompaniment on 2008's Born of Blue Fog, with only his guitar for company on several cuts. 2017's Under Grape Leaves was the first in a trilogy of albums Ethier would make with Sandro Perri as producer; the recordings found Ethier and Perri using vintage rhythm machines to give the songs a distinct sonic character as well as tightening the arrangements. The second LP in the cycle, 2019's Croak in the Weeds, was similarly spare and lyrically introspective, and 2021's Further Up Island was even stronger in its balance of beauty and loneliness. When he's not making music, Ethier also has a successful career as a visual artist and has shown his work in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Madrid, and Copenhagen. He's no relation to the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, though when the Toronto Blue Jays played the Dodgers in Los Angeles in 2007, the Blue Jays brought Canada's Andre Ethier to L.A. to sing their national anthem.
