Andrew Hibbard is a musician, songwriter, singer and writer of poetry. Born in Hamilton, Ohio in the late months of 1995, he began playing guitar at the age of six when his father showed him some basic chords. Since high school he’s been picking and roaming, following the paths cut by his musical forebears — Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Neil Young, Hank Williams, Chet Atkins and Lightnin’ Hopkins.
Andrew has released two studio albums to date; Foot in the Door (2012) and Under the Knife (2015).
He has toured, performed at festivals and shared the stage with some titans of the American songbook; Dr. Ralph Stanley, Willie Nelson, Sturgill Simpson, Old Crow Medicine Show, the Tillers, Willie Watson and Tyler Childers.
Andrew claims to have written nearly 300 songs, most of which he’s scrapped, lost or forgotten. Luckily a dozen of the best have survived the culling and are slated for release on his third self-titled LP, due out in the spring of 2020 on SofaBurn.
Whether it’s paying tribute to the classics or displaying his own craft to match his musical mentors, Andrew Hibbard is sure to be a delightful and intoxicating experience to anyone who is a fan of Folk/Country/Blues at its best.
