(a quick disclaimer - a few technical hicups but stick with it - Andrews talent really shines) In praise of the BASS - it’s what anchors and creates the beat. Andrew Walton is our guest this week. He is a superb bass player with abilities well beyond his age. Listening Lyrics is thrilled to start the 2015 season with this terrific talent.
Andrew Walton grew up in Woodland CA. and started playing guitar at 11 and bass at 12. Andrew started performing with the Douglass Middle School's concert band but it was at Pioneer High School, that he started playing jazz in Pioneer's Jazz Gold Band and Jazz Combo.His music career really took off once he started playing jazz in small combos around Davis and Woodland even then, he was always looking for opportunities to play. Jazz got him to start writing and really exploring what he could do with music. This, in turn, peaked his interest in other genres to see how the art form can be interpreted. Andrew is now attending Berklee College of Music as he continues his journey, and he doesn’t plan to stop any time soon.
