I'm Andrew Stein, and I love music. So much so, that I learned to play some instruments, like the Mandolin, and the Guitar, as well as a few others. Hopefully, someday, I'll be able to eat some food that was paid for by my music. That's all off in the future, for now.
I've been homeschooled my whole life. I've lived everywhere east of the Mississippi (wow, that really is hard to spell!) river in my short life, and I love learning from the road. Part of that freedom I've been given has helped me develop a love for music. Of course, my family has helped, too.
Most of the time, when I'm not writing or playing mandolin, I use the computer, play video games, and mess around with art of various forms. I hope to find some way to incorporate music into my career, whatever it may be.
I'll hopefully have my first steady gig this summer at a little beachside eating place, called the Shark Shack. Just me and a guitar and the summer breezes on the beach. Sounds fun! I can't wait for it.
Nickel Creek, Jason Mraz, Brian Setzer, Beck, Glen Phillips, The Beatles, Wilco, and countless others, I assure you.
Ehehe, if you saw the electronic equipment I use, you'd laugh. ^^ It's all fairly inexpensive stuff, but hey, it works! Right now I play on a Hohner guitar and an Elvenwood Mandolin. It rocks.
