That's right, Here's Andy is back again with a brand new EP called Spreadin' Thin/I Dunno. But this time, the music is even better. We caught up with Andy to find out about his new record and his new approach to music. So without further ado, Here's Andy! Dive in.
Third: Andy it's good to have you back. What have you been up to since we last spoke?
Andy: Doin' that rag. I've been keeping myself busy writing new material, working, and having fun of course. Playing with new people, trying new things with my music; stuff like that.
Based on the lyrics of your new tracks, you've been in bed for quite some time, eh?
Yeah for sure. The past few months especially I've been finding it particularly hard to do the things I have to do outside of my bedroom. Just getting out from under the covers can be a real challenge. The real world can really suck, especially if your bed is comfortable.
The new songs are 'heavier' in a way. Spreadin' Thin tell us more about it?
I decided to approach these tracks a little differently. Spreadin' Thin was written with the listener in mind. After I wrote the opening riff for the song, I thought it was a nice catchy tune much more palatable for the listener compared to some of the other songs I've written. It's a a pretty simple pop song, and a lot of fun to play.

Are you working on a full LP?
Yeah, I'm still working on the writing process though. I want to really make sure I have a polished body of work before I start the recording process.
Why do you really make music Andy? What's your aim for all of this?
It's the only thing that makes me feel this good. I have a somewhat selfish attitude about it. Nothing quite brings me as much satisfaction, gives me as much control, and makes me as happy. It's really the only thing I want to spend my time doing.
Do you still have your ex-girlfriend's guitar?
Haha unfortunately not! I held onto it a little while longer and then returned it. And the week after I gave it back, I brought my other guitar to use and fell out of my bed and broke it. I have the pieces hanging around my friends room. At least it wasn't her guitar though, that would be bad. She was nice enough to let me hold onto it for so long, I think she wanted it back in one piece.
