Andrew (Andrew Praiseword, he has another artist exactly with this name on SoundClick) lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He guesses that his songs are pretty known among the top North American and British rockers. They have reputation of v e r y unusual. ("I don't think I've heard anything like this before").

The songs are "dark". Almost all of them. This is natural, not sci-fi darkness.
Mostly because of the lyrics, which often rise to the heights of Shakespearean dramatic:
"Yes, war is hell,
But peace - is "kind of" boring.
You doing well,
Until you good with gun.
All things must pass.
There's nothing to be worrying.
You pressing hook -
They shout, fall, and run..."
"Game" ("So Far - So Good")

Andrew Praiseword, at last, had written several "not dark" ("light"?) songs. Rock-and-Roll "Come On, Amadeus!" is probably the best of them. Unfortunately it is not recorded yet because of... financial problems. But it's so c-o-o-o-o-o-l !!!!!
This is the best song EVER. (Andrew thinks.)
(Update of December 5, 2009.)
Andrew began playing guitar since he was 11 or 12. He played bass in the beat group. At 16 he quit and plunged in the other Universes besides the R'n'R, like literature, art... Later he had graduated the university by the way, and even more...
Approximately at 16 Andrew started to write his own poems and songs. He had written more than 3.5... hundred of them before 1988, when he got silent. He was surprised, even stunned, when in December of 2000 he wrote the song again (LIFE ON THE KNIFE).
