Song List

  • "Amos in Ohio"
  • "Moon Tea"

Singer-songwriter Kyle Andrews makes simple, keyboard-inflected pop songs with drum loops and guitars — and for the most part, he does it all by himself, with an ear for melody that's as strong as his songwriting ability. After moving from Chicago to Nashville, in 2004 Andrews recorded and self-released his debut EP, Various Stages of Nudity. Constant writing and gigging in the two years that followed eventually culminated in the release of his first full-length, Amos in Ohio, in 2006.

Originally released locally in Nashville, Amos in Ohio was recently reissued by Badman; its 13 songs constitute Andrews' cleanest, tightest work yet. Instantly memorable, the album is packed with infectious hooks, especially on the title track and the upbeat "Moon Tea."
