ANDY KONG BIO
Independent in every sense of the word, 26-year-old, Andy Kong, writes, records, produces and engineers every song from “notes on a napkin” to the final mix. Raised on the classic records of the 60’s and 70’s, the Northern California native is defining a sound that blends the intimacy of James Taylor with the synthetic grit of modern electronic artists like James Blake and Chet Faker.
Andy’s unique sound is as equally fresh as it is accessible and has lead him on multiple tours across the western United States, headlining stages up and down the coast including, Freight and Salvage (Berkeley, CA), Cafe Du Nord (San Francisco, CA) and the Alberta Rose Theater (Portland, OR).
In 2014, Andy was awarded “International Song of the Year” by the West Coast Songwriters Association and is currently promoting his new Meteor Showers EP, while finishing up production on a new video-musical project, entitled “Westfalia”, due out in the Fall.
