Artist Biography

Andrew Morstein is regarded worldwide as a soul-inspired, classically trained vocal powerhouse. During and after college he continues to perform with the noted acapella group, Gentleman's Rule, on stage and national PBS television shows. 

Digging into Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and the Stax Records of the 60's and 70's, Andrew gravitated his passion from Opera (as a Bel canto Tenor) to soul in 2013. 

Andrew studied Opera at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, where he performed in ten-plus opera productions and developed the technique that would lead him to find his brassy tenor sound. 

Having self-released (via a very successful KickStarter campaign) a classically driven EP in 2013 (The Runaway EP), Andrew left the studio seeking something different and edgier. At the same time as The Runaway EP was being released, Andrew was signed with SuperStar Records of Nashville. 

After two years of experimenting, writing, and recording in Nashville, Andrew and his team hand-selected five songs to feature on his debut EP, Honeybee. In his debut release as a soul artist, Andrew delivers a taste of what will come of his budding career. Honeybee delivers a new sound and brings a pop of edge, color, and heat to the genre, while staying true to dynamics real soul music - delivery, heart, and sweat.


Press Release
 
 
NASHVILLE, TN, January 21, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Andrew Morstein is regarded worldwide as a soul-inspired, classically trained vocal powerhouse. Upon graduation from the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, a well received PBS special and global tours with the noted acapella group Gentlemans Rule, Morstein has focused his energies on a new solo EP. Digging into Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Etta James and the Stax Records of the 60's and 70's, Andrew gravitated his passion from Opera (as a Bel canto Tenor) to soul. 
 
After 2013's successful KickStarter campaign, producing a classically driven EP called The Runaway, Andrew began seeking something different and edgier. After two years of experimenting, writing, and recording in Nashville, Andrew and his team hand-selected five songs to feature on his debut EP on SuperStar Records (SSR) of Nashville. 
 
The EP features a new soulful arrangement of the Winwood classic "I'm a Man", to a beautiful rendition of Billy Vera's love song "At This Moment", to the Steely Dan-inspired "Blurred Vision" co-written and produced by Joe Vitale, a potential AAA radio tune for the summer of 2016, "I Made a Promise" by Tom Whall, and the EP's signature love ballad, Honeybee, written by Andrew. Reviewers and Adam Lambert fans have noted that Andrew's vocals on the cut Honeybee are eerily reminiscent of Queen's great Freddie Mercury. 
 
This project entailed writing and working with top musicians including: Joe Vitale (The Eagles, CSN and Joe Walsh), keyboardist Billy Nobel (Tim McGraw), bassist David Santos (John Fogerty, Neville Brothers, Billy Joel, CSN), multi-instrumentalist Greg Mayo, the soul-inspired Jack Mack Horn section led by Bill Bergman, guitarist Justin Kalk, and guitarist, bassist and the EP's Executive Producer, John Heithaus, for SSR/Nashville.
 
Drummer, co-writer and co-Producer Joe Vitale adds: "Andrew delivers a taste of what will come of his budding career with a new sound that brings a nice edge, vivid colors, and noticeable vocal heat to the genre, while staying true to the powerful instrumental and vocal dynamics often found in America's best soul music."
 
A Facebook fan said it best: "(Andrew) brings to mind Gavin DeGraw and the Door's Jim Morrison. Being in league with these gentlemen is praiseworthy in my book. Can't wait to see Andrew on stage with the Jimmies Kimmel and Fallon! "
