An emerging artist on the Minnesota music scene, Andrew Walesch maintains a very active performance schedule. Whether recording jingles, producing shows, composing and arranging, or singing as a solo artist and with big bands all over the Midwest, Andrew is known for his unique approach to The Great American Songbook. He ventures outside of jazz and the standards, however, and can be found anywhere from a classy cocktail lounge to a rugged piano bar taking requests from just about every genre. More recently Andrew has focused on songwriting and is working on a project of originals. Andrew has recorded two albums and has sung and played on the stage of The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Chicago Theater, The Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis and dozens of venues all over the Midwest. He also has appeared on the nationally syndicated broadcast Mountain Stage on National Public Radio. In May of 2010, he graduated with a music degree from St. John's University, Collegeville, MN.
